What the PPS Award testers said:
“These wooden animal blocks have been the most played with resource since they arrived and proved great for open-ended play. The blocks are very well-made and smooth to the touch. They are exactly the right size for small hands and can be easily cleaned. We found they encouraged children to engage in lots of educational discussion about the animals, using new vocabulary about the noises they make, where they live and characteristics such a stripes and spots."
"When opening the box, my son’s reaction was, ‘Wow!' I thought the blocks were well-designed and made."
