Standard Unit Blocks
There is no better way for your child to learn about building and putting things together than with your standard building blocks. Every kid grows up playing with blocks. This toy is perfect for a child to have fun and to also explore their creativity. Give your child hours of learning fun with these Standard Unit Blocks by Melissa & Doug available right here at Kids Travel Zone.
This unit comes with sixty hardwood blocks that are packaged in a strong wooden crate for easy organization and storage. These blocks are ideal for building, balancing, and hands-on early-math learning for children. It’s the perfect kids gift!
Some of the learning benefits from toy blocks:
- Physical benefits: toy blocks build strength in a child's fingers and hands, and improve eye-hand coordination. They also help educate children in different shapes.
- Social benefits: block play encourages children to make friends and cooperate, and is often one of the first experiences a child has playing with others. Blocks are a benefit for the children because they encourage interaction and imagination. Creativity can be a combined action that is important for social play.
- Intellectual benefits: children can potentially develop their vocabularies as they learn to describe sizes, shapes, and positions. Math skills are developed through the process of grouping, adding, and subtracting, particularly with standardized blocks, such as unit blocks. Experiences with gravity, balance, and geometry learned from toy blocks also provide intellectual stimulation.
- Creative benefits: children receive creative stimulation by making their own designs with blocks.
