Bought both the coloured and monochrome set to make a Numberblocks set. Kiddos are obsessed.
I love these blocks-the seams are tight, and they are just the right color to mimic the Cbeebies NumberBlocks characters. They sound like they have multiple magnets inside (at the corners) when the blocks are shaken, but I don't have problems sticking magnetic stickers to them (I've printed the NumberBlock faces and adhered them to craft store magnetic strips). They make a squeaky sound when being manipulated against one another, but I actually like this as it helps me monitor when my son has stopped playing with them so that I can keep track of where he's off to next. These are so much more fun than the mathlink blocks-I wish I had purchased these first.
If your kids like watching the Numberblock youtube tv show they're going to love playing with the blocks while watching the show! Huge win, they are learning and playing at the same time!
My grandson loves them and it keeps him entertained. He is always showing me something he has made. Great purchase.
We got our order today and my 5 y/o daughter has not stopped playing with them...she wanted to put them at the end of her bed tonight!! Haha. I'm a returning customer and will be ordering more dots for my 11 y/o daughter as well.
