Twig

A generous reader sent a us a set of these blocks to try out and review. Thanks, Kelly! They are amazing! O gasped when I opened the box :) The possiblities for creative play are endless, and they are a great addition to our block collection. The colors are vibrant, and the blocks are beautifully made. The blocks are stained instead of painted, so that the wood grain is visible. These blocks will be around for O's children and maybe even her grandchildren one day!
Twig blocks are fun for all ages! Elliott, Guh-guh, O, and I have all enjoyed creating different structures :) O especially loves to build houses and tall buildings which she then joyfully knocks down! Here is a link to Matt's, the creator of Twig, website and the story behind their journey from Etsy to Fat Brain Toys at Ohdeedoh.

  7. Those blocks look awesome! I have a question about something else...

    What do you keep in those pouches under the art work on clips area in the background of the blocks photos?

  10. Those blocks are fantastic!!! I'd love to get a set for my daughter.
    I'll have to wait for a Canadian retailer to carry them though - shipping plus duty will be more than the price of the blocks!
