Wooden blocks have never been cooler. Look around at any preschool group and you'll find kids gathering round these classic wooden toys dreaming and building. This year I'm keen on CITIBLOCS Original Wooden Building Block Set.
No bells or whistles, just lots of wooden slats that can be turned into castles, garages, skycrapers. They are crafted from New Zealand pine and are from a renewable resource. These slats feel good in the hand and require a fair amount of coordination to use. I recommend for age 4 and up. Buy Citiblocs 200 Piece set on Amazon.com for $35.19
