It is exceptional.

It is great for children from 12 months and will grow with the child, from novice to architect!

Haba Building Blocks are made in Germany to a very high quality. The beautiful, natural, untreated beech wood is non toxic. The finish is satin smooth and the blocks are wonderful to hold. They are solid and well balanced. The shapes are exact.

These blocks will last.

Fantastic as a first block set, the smallest block size is 1 ½ x 1 ½ inches (4 x 4 cm).

This is also a learning toy suitable for older children. They are precise shapes, made to standard measurements which allow accurate stacking and building needed for older children. And this is a large set - 102 pieces - with a great variety of shapes so your child’s creativity won’t be frustrated by a lack of materials!

It also comes with a fabric storage bag for quick tidy, easy storage and simple transporting.

Haba blocks are expensive, but are worth the investment.

Expansion sets are available and include blocks for various types of architecture such as baroque, russian, turkish and medieval.

Blocks are a great educational toy as they are entirely free form and controlled by the child. They provide hours of creative, building fun.

Amazon reviews:

"Thanks to other reviewers who helped me choose this excellent set of blocks! HABA makes high quality blocks which are pleasing to the eye and satin-smooth. The wood is strong and resists dents/dings. Each shape is designed to fit with the others to make attractive structures. The shapes included in the Extra Large Starter Set are interesting enough to encourage children to play and build for hours. My husband and I cannot resist helping! HABA blocks are well worth the price. I plan to purchase more HABA block sets to expand our construction horizons. What a great memory-making toy!" More Amazon reviews for Haba building blocks.
