I purchased these for my niece about a year ago and she is now 2 1/2. Her and her 1 year old brother both enjoy these blocks and have had much more fun than I ever would have imagined with them. She likes to tell me all of the different animals on them and even knows the difference between which is the whale and which is the dolphin and I think that that is amazing for a child that age and know that she probably wouldn't know otherwise. They also like to put small toys under the boxes or in the boxes because they can think of really creative uses for them. :)

I bought these about three months after I purchased the alphabet nesting and stacking blocks, also by Melissa and Doug.

The alphabet blocks are a lasting favorite, but because they're made of a stiff paper/cardboard material they are sturdy but were starting to show wear.

I thought that because the other blocks were such a favorite, that surely 'upgrading' to the wooden ones would be a good decision.

Nope. They're very attractive, very sturdy and very nice. But they're harder to pull apart (the wood is a little heavier and sort of clings to the other nested blocks) and make quite a racket when they're stacked and knocked over.

The kids don't like them, and have only played with them one time since I purchased them. I have hopes that when they're bit bigger (they're 14 months) that they will like this set, but for now it doesn't hold their interest at all. The alphabet set, however, is still played with daily. I would have been smarter to simply buy a back-up of those instead of a new set.

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Wooden Animal Nesting Blocks:

    My grandchildren spent many hours being creative with these wooden stacking boxes. It allows the child to create things and begin to understand basic skills and they have no idea they are learning. So durable they have lasted through 2 children and are still at 4 and 6 playing with them. Highly recommended!

    Very sharp corners

    By Kat

    from Edmonton, AB

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Wooden Animal Nesting Blocks:

    The pictures are bright and engaging. They are fun to stack and more fun to knock over. My issue is that the corners are very sharp and if they fall over towards a little person they hurt. I would only recommend them for kids old enough to know how to avoid getting injured.

      The colorful design and detail on these nesting blocks is wonderful. My 1.5 year old plays with them every day. They are great stacking blocks and store neatly inside themselves. Construction seems to be durable and sturdy. They make a beauful gift as well and have become my go to for an impressive, different and useful present for toddlers.

        I ordered these adorable nesting blocks for my daughter. She has been spending a lot of time stacking and nesting them all by herself. It is a great toy for both motor skills and concentration.

          My 20 month old twins LOVE these blocks. It has helped them mock count as they stack them and they love for any adult to sit and tell the name of each animal. It teaches stacking and nesting. Now they stack them sideways so they can tuck in little toys in the cubbie hole. These stack together for an easy toy to bring with you for hours of fun.

            My son and I love these blocks! He is 13 months old and loves to stack and knock them over. We also enjoy using them as drums with our hands or wooden spoons, the different sounds create an array of tones! The beautiful colors and animals are an excellent tool for learning as we play, couldn't ask for a more simple yet fun toy!

              I have a two year old daughter, but I bought this toy for a friend and her two year old daugther for her birthday. When she opened it the girls starting playing with it right away and loved it! It is very durable and it's a great educational toy. You can teach the child the animals on the blocks and teach them to stack them on top of each other and inside each other. Because the blocks fit inside each other so it makes it for easy clean up and storage. I love Melissa and Doug products! They are a must for any child!

                  My daughter received these as a gift when she was just over 1 year old. She is now 2 and this toy is her favorite of all. Whenever we travel we have to bring them with us because we know it will provide lots of entertainment. She loves to stack them and cheer when she is all done. And they are certainly durable - I can't believe they are all in one piece after all the "knock downs" Who knew blocks could be so much fun?
