100 Piece Large Unit Bricks Set
"Unit Bricks are terrific tools for facilitating children's developing visual-spatial and geometric skills, as well as numeracy and mathematics. In the process of playing with these building blocks, children gain a better sense of how objects and numbers fit together, exercise their advanced planning skills, and have fun -- all at the same time. I highly recommend Unit Bricks for any child wanting to learn through play!"
Dr. Walter Gilliam PhD. Director, Zigler Center in Child Development, Yale University

Love these blocks
May 20, 2010
I invested in a set of these bricks for a new classroom we opened last fall. The four and five year olds in that room have loved building with them. The regular unit blocks have been around for a while and these were just different enough and realistic enough to keep them engaged. That, after all is exactly what we want from a good developmentally appropriate toy! A great investment.
