There is just something about good quality wooden toys that I love ~ the feel, the durability, and the open ended play that most wooden toys provide! We received brightly colored, wooden nesting Cylinders and Cubes from Guidecraft for the kids to play with.
About the Cylinders and Cubes
Both the Cylinders and Cubes come painted with brightly colored non-toxic paint and have a fun pattern painted on the edge. The pieces graduate from primary (red, blue and green) to pastel colors. You can use the bright yellow base to stack and sort the pieces.
We did some color matching with colored pencils ~ talking about the variations in the colors and
Aiden made a dinosaur pet shop using the Cubes.
These are not your ordinary stacking containers! The pieces are recommended for ages 3 and up however, since they are painted with non-toxic paint I would feel comfortable giving them to younger children.
