In our house, blocks are the great equalizer. They are one of very few toys that ALL of our children can agree on, and will happily play together. As a mother, I absolutely love when I find a toy that brings joy to one of my children, but when I find a toy that makes all three of them happy, I am ecstatic! Timberworks Toys caught my eye nearly a year ago. Timberworks Toys offers AMAZING block sets to delight and inspire children of all ages.
Master carpenter Chris Heston, has developed a line of high-quality wooden blocks that truly are designed to let your child’s imagination run wild. Many of the sets offered by Timberworks Toys include widgets, wheels, and large timbers to stretch your child’s creativity and allow them to design a wide array of structures….We had houses, castles, a zoo, a corn maze, an airport, a hotel ,and a racetrack in the course of a few hours at our house!
We were lucky enough to receive and review the Beautiful Building Blocks set from Timberworks Toys. This set comes with 15 twelve inch logs, 30 six inch logs, 4 square connectors, and two large panels. (Another feature I love…the blocks come in their own handy tote bag! Yay for easy toy storage!!)
This handy little tote bag allowed my son to keep a set of blocks in his bedroom (which thrilled his little three year old heart!) I LOVE that the blocks have a home and can easily be found at playtime. When this bag arrived, my son was SO excited to see what was inside.
When he discovered that he was going to receive a beautiful set of blocks, he was THRILLED! He immediately set to work building, creating, and putting his imagination to work. I’ve said it before, but I LOVE toys that require that the child bring a piece of themselves to playtime. I love it when a toy inspires imaginative play. The block and building sets from Timberworks Toys were designed to do exactly that. These are timeless toys based on the idea of the “log cabin” building toys, with an innovative new twist. Their new and modernized building components allow for children to build multiple story buildings, bridges, and wheeled vehicles (to name a few!)
I love that the website offers an idea page of featured projects to help get your creativity flowing! Check out just some of what you can make and build with the blocks and building sets from Timberworks Toys: Featured Projects Page!! If you’re like me, and you
appreciate need a visual, they also have HOW-TO VIDEOS demonstrating how to put together some of their most popular structures and vehicles! (How cool is that?!)And if these amazing resources weren’t enough, they also offer free lesson plans!! Timberworks Toys is committed to education, and believes that you can use play to create powerful learning opportunities for children. (And as an educator, I whole-heartedly agree!!)
I LOVED seeing my kids dive right into playtime, ignoring the tv, the computer…..in exchange for a chance to use their creativity and imagination using solid, high quality, classic, and amazingly well-made toys. Place a set of building toys in front of a child, and just watch….watch the magic….the endless possibilities….AND, the unique building components from Timberworks Toys truly allows your child endless building potential…These blocks take your child WAY beyond the average house or tower!
My husband was quick to jump in and begin building with the kids as well! Building toys allow us as parents such a unique opportunity to play alongside our children. We get a window into their little creative minds, and get the pleasure of working with them to create something beautiful. I loved that David was able to come up with things to do with the Beautiful Building Blocks that were completely different that my ideas.
