DAILY GROMMET : CITIBLOCS : KIDS BUILDING BLOCKS - ALL NATURAL WOODEN BLOCKS
The founder of CitiBlocs, Marjorie Israel Chayette, knew what child experts and educators have advocated for years: Open-ended, free play is key to unlocking a child's boundless creativity. Building blocks facilitate fundamental hand/eye coordination and tune fine motor skills for preschoolers, while fostering innovation, focus and self-esteem in older children.
With fun and learning in mind, Marjorie created CitiBlocs with a design that requires no glue, no snaps, no connectors and no magnets. They're made from pine grown in renewable forests in New Zealand and China. They're not treated with any chemicals, and they're certified nontoxic. Each lightweight block is precision cut to the exact same shape and size every time, allowing for easy balancing and stacking. Gravity, balance and ingenuity are all you need for hours of entertainment for kids and grownups. No batteries required.
