I love toys! I’m so glad I have a little girl now because I have an excellent excuse to walk through the toy aisle at the store or surf the web for fun and unique toy stores. :-) I especially like wooden toys like building blocks, puzzles, and stacking and sorting toys – but it seems like most of the stores I walk into nowadays are overrun with plastic. It’s sad, but there are always places like Gummy Lump that give us a great selection of quality toys for all ages – and I love that they have wooden toys galore!
Thanks to Gummy Lump, I was able to review these Russian Blocks:
This Russian palace comes with step-by-step instructions for putting it together (see above in photo) and contains 55 maplewood blocks in 16 different shapes. The cool thing is that you don’t have to make just the above palace – you can create your own Russian landmarks if you want! I found it a lot of fun and enjoyed putting it together with my husband. I’m definitely going to be saving it for my daughter when she gets older (though she can play with the blocks now), and love that I can pull it out when older children come over.
Although at $44.95 these blocks are a little pricey for me, I love that they’remade of quality maplewood – they’ll last a very long time. I found them to be an excellent learning tool and fun for all ages. I’m tempted to build it again and leave it on display somewhere, it’s beautiful!

Disclosure: Although Gummy Lump sent me these Russian Blocks to review, it does not affect the honesty of the review. I do not review products if I feel pressured to write a positive review in spite of what I think – I always write honestly.
Thank you sooo much for sharing this post! :-)
