I’ve fallen absolutely in love with these unique handmade wooden block sets handcrafted by mom Brooke of Magen’s Bay!  You’ll find a myriad of patterns and colors (for girls, boys, or gender neutral), and the blocks are available in several set sizes from sets of 6 to sets of 50.

Blocks are really a basic staple of a child’s toy collection, aren’t they?  These are more than what you’ll find in the store – they’re lovingly made by a fellow mom; cut, sanded, designer papers applied and sealed over several times with nontoxic varnish.  These blocks will make a fashion statement in any nursery.  :)

A Mom’s Thoughts

Thanks to Magen’s Bay, I received a set of six Alphabet Animal Blocks for review.

I am so pleased with the quality of these blocks!  They are exceptionally well-made and are cuter than any other set of blocks I’ve come across in stores.   They are safe for little ones, made with nontoxic materials and with all edges sanded down.

I love the combination of letters and animals, two things that my 2-year-old is crazy about right now.  She enjoys not only stacking and building with them, but naming the animals and the letters.

I’m crazy about this online store and recommend them highly!  In fact, I think you should run, not walk, straight there and make an order.  Her prices are very reasonable.  These animal blocks are $18.00 for the set of six.  She also has sets of 30 blocks for $36.00.  You can’t beat that!

Discount Alert!

Magen’s Bay is offering 20% off your order, just make sure to mention you came from Kindred Spirit Mommy and she’ll refund you after you make the order.  :)
