Sakrada Building Blocks by Habermass
This set of 10 beechwood building blocks is a great set for toddlers. The edges of each piece is rounded and the finish is smooth so there is absolutely no chance of getting a sliver or nasty bump from the blocks. Each block is large enough for little hands to easily manipulate but large enough that they don't pose a choking risk. What I love about the blocks is that each on is kind of like a little piece of art. From reflective/metallic paint (non-toxic of course), to prisms, pearls, and unique shapes, each block is lovely all on it's own. The blocks can be combined in a multitude of ways to create all sorts of unique configurations. Strengths: This set works wonderfully with other Haba wooden block sets and is incredibly durable. Weaknesses: The price! The blocks are expensive but worth it, so if you want to find a building toy that can grow in many different ways with your child, this is a great one to start with.
