"I loved this and so did our under 2's! Immediately this product seemed appropriate for the age range, as it provided a safe and durable brick that can be used to develop a toddler's fine motor skills. The children took very well to the different colours and feel of the bricks and most could stack them after a number of attempts. We really like these and would like to purchase some as soon as possible. What a lovely durable play resource."
