Tinker Block Toys - Building Blocks Set (Farm) Review

We do not purchase electronic toys for our children. We like imaginative, creative, and educational toys. As babies, our children do not play with the typical loud (and yes quite annoying) music toys that flash lights. For our 3 children, we like traditional toys like blocks, dolls, houses, stuffed animals, and cars. I cringe a little when I see children barely 3 or 4 with a tablet or video game. My daughter is 6 and is just barely learning about computers at school (I am happy that we waited). We do not have cable, and the only tv the kids watch is perhaps 2-3 hours weekly of public broadcasting children's educational shows.

I was sent a bristle comb set that is reminiscent of the similar style toys that I grew up loving. This "Tinker Blocks" building set consists of 150 various blocks (and bars, shapes, etc.) as well as wheels and 5 farm figures. The colors are bright and this toy keeps my almost 3 year old (an his 6 year old sister) happy for a good hour or more at a time. I like that this has a reusable zippered tote bag for easy clean up and storage and enough pieces for the 2 children to share (and play together peacefully). Both children love making cars and various things that roll along. The wheels really move! I would recommend the company adding an extra set of 4 wheels so that there are more options.

My only complaint is that right out of the box there is a bit of paint fume odor that takes a couple days to air out. The figures (farmer and animals) are not as nice quality as I would have liked. They are indeed adorable (except the farmer has some strange brown lips and is the least cute of the set) and increase the playability (and imagination) of the bristle blocks, but are painted poorly and uneven. The bottoms of some of the characters is messy. I like how the figures clip onto the bristle blocks. Despite the odor and the uneven paint of the figures, I still give this set a 4 out of 5 and highly recommend it!

This was sent to me for review, and I was not compensated for this post (other than being sent the item complimentary for review purposes).
