Architectural Block Set
Using wood blocks to build what the imagination inspires is a time-honored way for children to exercise their creative juices. The designers of this very handsome, brightly colored kit of over 100 pieces have taken the concept a step further. The pieces are cut, colored and shaped to mimic the style of classic European buildings: The Pantheon and Arch of Constantine in Rome, the Parthenon in Athens, Big Ben in London, or St Marks Cathedral in Venice are just a few of the suggestions. A 66 page hardback book with a discussion of architectural development through the ages comes with each. As well as being educational, this block set is especially colorful and fun to work with.
