12 Classic Toys That Still Rock

ClassicToy,WoodenBuildingBlocks

Blocks (Various Manufacturers)


Sure, a good set of wooden blocks can be expensive, but educators agree that blocks are the one toy no child should be without. Think back to the complex structures you built as a kid, with secret rooms, soaring towers, and daring bridges... what would childhood have been without those feats of architectural bravado? Also, blocks stand the test of time, accommodating your child's interests and abilities from the toddler years through adulthood. (Weren't you late to dinner because you were immersed in building?) Features of a great block set include smooth, solid wood blocks and enough pieces and interesting shapes to make nearly any structure imaginable. When your young builder is ready to graduate from chunky blocks, Lincoln Logs and Erector Sets are the classic next steps.

Ages 3-8 years
