This set is the first set of Rubberwood blocks that
really qualifies as a set of blocks. A good set for a 5 year old
requires about 200 blocks, but this will get you started. Don't
expect these Rubberwood blocks from China to be the same quality as
American blocks, but they're not bad and for this price they can't be beat. There
are enough blocks to build a facade or some small "buildings."
For a moderate price, you can see if your youngster would like to play
with this toy. Small children can see and name the different
shapes and enjoy making small towers. If they like their blocks,
you can always add more later.
