Robust and traditionally styled chunky wooden picture blocks, colour printed on both sides with real images of different characters. Perfect for young children to engage in imaginative play and develop their descriptive language skills.
The 20mm birch plywood blocks are smooth to touch and easy for small children to handle and provide positive role model images for older children to discuss.
The realistic images will enable younger children to recognise and relate to the characteristics of other people and encourage older children to visualise them for story-telling, drama work, and when learning about different cultures, backgrounds and lifestyles.
Includes 8 children and 24 adults representing a variety of ages, professions, cultures, religions and disabilities.

What the PPS award testers said:
"This is a lovely product that is very versatile. The blocks proved immediately appealing and sparked lots of discussions around the children’s observations of people – with children listening to their peers’ ideas and thoughts, and then contributing their own. They have been used in imaginative role-play, and encourage turn-taking. We liked that they were suitable for all age groups and are easy to store because they are flat."
