Basic building set

I’ve bought this and put is away for Christmas (my boys will be 1.5 and 3 by then), although it was very hard to stash it in the cupboard! They are beautifully made, light and slightly grippy to touch. The colours are bright and attractive. I can’t wait to add them to our collection.

Basic Building Set

Love the colours, love the shapes. Perfect addition to the Giant Building Blocks that Mr 1yo has already!

Beautiful chunky blocks

Absolutely love the large arches and chunky triangles. It compliments our Large Stepped Pyramid and 1001 Nights building sets so well. My almost 5yo loves building with them all together.

Elsie Cooper
Our favourite

Received these blocks and instantly in love. Such big pieces and super bright. My children’s favourite yet 🧡


I’ll admit I balked at the price of these initially but they were so pretty I decided to take the plunge. When they arrived and I realised the size and quality absolutely no regrets. My one year old has the best Xmas in store!

Great blocks

When these arrived they were bigger and brighter then I had imagined. Perfect set for building with the variety of shapes.

Big and beautiful

So happy with our new block set. I think they'll go perfectly with the giant blocks, the green arch pieces are huge! Amazing colours and quality as ever.
