Review: "I purchased these wooden pieces along with a few rolls of colored masking tape and pine wood scraps. My three young grandchildren who live with me have used it every day this summer -- for taping things together, as embellishments for their block-building, and for making furniture for their doll play. They have glued and painted sculptures... I could go on and on. These pieces are wonderful for letting your children's imaginations go wild and giving them the opportunity to create something based on their own ideas vs. duplicating a craft which someone else has thought up. I am also an early childhood educator and this embodies everything that is good in choosing materials for children."
Bottom Line: "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend."
