Recieved as a gift from the scrarchcard event and absolutely love them..very happy with it as a gift however I was straight away asked where the number 4 was by my son. If this had a 4 it would be perfect

Really clever product for allowing children to explore early number concepts. Really chunky and stackable too.

This has been perfect for my just turned 2 year old who loves numbers! I added a 4 for her and she's had so much fun with them. Will be adding a bigger pack once she's older

On the fence

Great idea to have a sample pack, would be nice if it came with 2x2 though. I have been eyeing up Sumblox for a few months now but can't justify the cost of the big set just yet, I can see their appeal however my 2 are just not interested yet I need to do some more with them to get them to engage with them. We've had them a little while and they are stood up on a shelf, whilst picking them up yesterday I did notice that where they have been knocked the varnish has chipped and is starting to come away, I wasn't aware that they were varnished so that's a little off putting I think ours might end up looking tatty, also i'm not sure if the wood will get a little too rough if it's knocked a lot. Great idea though, still on the fence.
