Mom Perspective: What is not to love about this set? There are so many different pieces that I have never seen before which lets my boys’ imagination run wild. The wooden blocks are thick enough for my one year old daughter to grab an play with (under my supervision) and I don’t have to worry about her breaking her brothers’ toys. This set works perfectly with the Community Buildings which my boys immediately pulled out to enhance their playing.
Scene: Soccer player broke his leg and the ambulance rushed him to the hospital.
Physical Therapist Perspective: Bright colorful chunky wooden pieces that are great for hand-eye coordination. Each block is sturdy enough to stand on its own but still practices the spatial awareness required to place each piece upright. This set can easily be transferred to speech and occupational therapy needs as well, asking the child what each sign means, what each vehicle would sound like and having the families and community workers interact.
