You can't go wrong with kids and cardboard I say. Love the different shapes and bright colors. Charlotte turned four and her cousin Geno (nine) came to play that day. They had so much fun building together. Nana ended up an animal in the zoo that they built.
Rated 3 out of 5 by NikkiW Quality issues, rare for M&D
I bought these for my kids for Christmas. I didn't realize I'd be spending 2 hours assembling them on Christmas, but no big deal. Unfortunately, I saw all sorts of reviews about the weight they can hold and how well they can stand up. We've only had them for 3 months and half of them are destroyed. I don't think my kids are any more destructive than most, these things just don't hold up the way I had hoped. Very rare, nothing I've ever bought from M&D has had such a quality issue.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SmileyMomSarah Love these but wish I could buy add-ons
My son and daughter (ages 2 and 6) LOVE building towers, tunnels and roads with these blocks and they are a playdate favorite for visiting friends. My only wish is that I could buy more of the red blocks as they seem to use (and run out of) those. Instead of buying an entire second set, it would be great if there were add-on sets. Also, the yellow blocks seem to crush/break really easily and my children just shove those into a corner (I should just recycle them probably)!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nannie Kids even have fun putting these away,
My grand children have played with these blocks for 4 years and they are still in great condition. They have built castles and knocked them down, they've built walkways that they have walked on many times. Everyone comments on what a fun toy these are. No one has ever been hurt playing with them. They are light enough for little ones to handle.

When my twins were babies (now 24) they loved these toys at a doctor's office, so I made them some out of tissue boxes and wrapped them in funny paper...which worked until they thought they were presents. I am now buying a set for my great nephews hoping they will enjoy them as much.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lolathemola Great, but need more red ones
These are great for large motor, but require care in stacking. Good for kids from 2 to 5 as a gift, but kids up to 10 will continue to play with them. The only problem is that the package includes too many of the smallest size, and not enough of the biggest size. Kids should be able to make a "fort" out of them and actually be inside it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by nicholas' momma not meant for classroom
I bought three boxes for my toddler (20-30 month) classroom. These are great for fun building without the weight of wooden blocks. The con is that right away the kids began chewing on the corners and the cardboard just melts away. They cannot be wiped off for sanitation without damaging product. They take some time to get the knack of putting the blocks togther but once you get going they are easy. For home use where you are not going to wipe them off or have just one or two children playing they are fine, but our group of 12 toddlers destroyed them pretty fast.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lili's Mami Awesome!
My daughter got these as a Christmas present and they are just awesome. The construction is very durable and the colors are nice and bright. You may have difficulty getting your first few blocks together because they have an internal support system which means they won't squish the minute your child accidently steps on one! Assembly between two adults took 45 minutes.
