There is something in the simplicity of the CitiBlocs set from Alex Brands that makes it incredibly fun.
These are thin wooden blocks that are designed perfectly to build amazing structures from simple houses or towers to over the top castles and snakes.
The CitiBlocs set we had the opportunity to try was the 300 piece Natural Building Blocks Set. Which retails for $74.99 on the Alex Brands website.
As most kids my children have always been obsessed with building blocks and bricks, however we hadn’t used wooden blocks sense the kids were toddlers. As they got older I always associated wooden blocks with large clunky blocks that were more suited for the younger kids.
CitiBlocs Natural Building Sets have definitely changed my mind about wooden building sets.
The blocks are thin and easy to manipulate in order to build whatever your imagination can dream up. I saw how engaged my son was while building even the simplest of structures with these blocks and its awesome to watch his excitement and determination while he strategizes his building method.
This is a great gift idea this holiday season!
