Children have been learning from and playing with blocks for many years. It is impressive to think that despite the passing of time and the way toys have changed that the block remains a staple of childhood. There is something incredibly satisfying about watching your kids get ahold of wooden blocks for the first time or the first time you get to stack a tower with your child then knock it down!
While the wooden block remains a staple of childhood, it has been reimagined by talented toy makers. Blocks come in all shapes and sizes and with many functions in mind! The function remains the same, despite the changes to the offerings of the wooden block world.
We have some exciting examples of the evolution of the block here in the Blue Digger shop. These are colorful, fun and ready to help your child jump into the world of learning new skills through play! These modern designs are fun and eye-catching, and are sure to be a hit with your kids!

Sometimes, a good old block set is all you are looking for, and this is the perfect set for introducing block building play. It contains 100 blocks and a carry case and the variety of shapes included is great for building towers, houses, castles and more. This is one of my favorite gift ideas for toddlers!
Building blocks might have changed with the times in their design and capabilities for learning, but one fact remains the same, offering kids blocks is a fun way to entertain them and help them learn through play.
