Tsumiki Unique Wooden Construction Blocks from Oh! Toys

>> Sunday, April 25, 2010

Oh! Toys is all about cool and unusual toys and Tsumiki combines classic wooden blocks with a unique twist. They have notches in the blocks that allow children to use them in all new ways.

Tsumiki Construction Blocks
reflect the rich architectural design heritage of Japan from where they are imported. The innovative shapes and beautiful finish in this wooden construction toy set let you create shapes and structures way beyond the conventional wooden block set.

Tsumiki blocks come in a great wooden case. As a parent who is constantly trying to pick up toys, I really love it when they come in a case and this is a nice wooden case with a slide top. My kids actually make a whole extra game out of putting the blocks back into the box because they only fit when the are stacked neatly inside.

Unlike the simple geometric shapes of standard kindergarten blocks, Tsumiki blocks have unique angles, notches and curves. My kids are three and five and these blocks were great for inspiring both of them and letting both of them work within their creative abilities. The blocks come with a sheet with photos of lots of ways that the blocks can be arranged. My daughter really enjoyed trying to recreate these works while my son just likes stacking them in whatever order he chooses. They have gotten lots of play time our to these blocks and some of their creations would be worthy of display, if my son didn't knock them down! My kids really enjoy their Tsumiki blocks and I can see why they won the Parent's Choice Award!

You can check out Tsumiki blocks and lots of other unique toys at Oh! Toys and for a limited time if you "like" Oh! Toys on Facebook and leave a comment, you will be entered to win a $200 GC from Oh! Toys.

Oh! Toys did provide me with the Tsumiki blocks in hopes that I would share my honest opinions on my blog. I received no monetary compensation for the review and the opinions expressed are my own.

These blocks look really neat! They would be great for my five year old as they look to require more thought and concentration than the "normal" blocks that are simply stacked. Thanks for the review, I will have to add these to my list for him for Christmas this year :-)

Those look like a fun toy for my 4 year old daughter, I'll have to tell her grandma to check them out, she actually lived in japan several years

Parents know that if the toys are not Unique toys and aren't appealing to their child then the toy will likely sit on a shelf. Finding Unique toys, high quality learning toys that stimulate the children's development but are fun to play with is essential.
