Not for chewers-- wood too soft!Jun 13, 2003
Although the recommended age is 2 years, I confirmed with the manufacturer that this age recommendation is for the child's interest/educational sake and not safety related. My ten month old loved the blocks and immediately bagan examining each one, as well as tasting them as everything goes in her month at this age. Within minutes, I noticed she had something in her mouth that she was chewing on. The blocks are made from such soft wood that with a little saliva she was able to scrape wood (and ink) off with her teeth! The ink on the side of the block was already smearing with a little saliva, and as I said she was able to scrape off the wood-- enough to chew on! Needless to say, the toy was taken away from her (much to her dismay). I was very disappointed with the quality of this classic styled old fashioned toy.

Just like you used to have!May 29, 2003
By Page Turner
These blocks are classic and very sturdy. Of the 50 in the set, 38 are letter blocks. There is a different letter on both sides: the "A" block has "N" on the bottom, etc. Of the 38 there are
5 A/N blocks
4 B/O blocks
2 C/P blocks
2 D/Q blocks
5 E/R blocks
3 F/S blocks
3 G/T blocks
2 H/U blocks
4 I/V blocks
2 J/W blocks
2 K/X blocks
2 L/Y blocks
and 2 M/Z blocks.
The other 12 are blocks bearing numbers and the +, -, and = symbols. Happy spelling/building!

Oldie but not a Goodie!!!Nov 11, 2005
By Tawny Suchowierski
I got these blocks quite a while ago, proud of myself for finding these "good old blocks". They SUCK!! The paint was peeling off the first time it got a little saliva on it! The wood itself is very soft and easily destroyed and splintery!! Stay away from the Old Fashion Type Blocks!!!!!

Nice blocks but way too smallJun 09, 2003
I just received the blocks and although they are nice they are very,very small- only about 1 inch square. I can't believe how tiny they are!!! I didn't even know they made blocks that small, lol.

Cheap, low quality garbageDec 31, 2011
By J. Barone
These blocks were very helpful to me. I was under the mistaken assumption that Melissa and Doug was a high quality toy company, and these blocks cleared that right up. The company produces the same crappy, low quality, made-in-China toys that you can get at dollar stores for a fraction the price, they just have the right combination of marketing and packaging to hoodwink people into thinking their wares are decent.
The blocks weren't great to start with. The paint was smudged on many of them, but the real stunner was that the blocks were in many cases poorly cut and not sanded/finished properly. This meant lots of rough, splintery edges. The paint also comes off really easily, even just from scratching. Might as well let your kid play with scrap wood from a construction site.
Don't be fooled. If you want high quality blocks, order from one of the many companies out there that offer legitimately good ones. Otherwise buy a cheap off-brand and save a lot compared to the swindlers at Doug and Melissa.
