Wood Castle Blocks

by paperfacets

This set of castle building blocks for toddlers and older is making a big hit with parents. The only problem most mention is the box of 75 blocks is too small.

They are free of phithalates and BPAs and are made of natural wood. I have seen them boxed as Treehaus. The blocks are unpainted and come in a box of 75 pieces.

The draw of this set is the various shapes of the different components. The turrets are a pointed square or round and have carved elements to make them look like stepped bricks. The windows are arches or square cutouts and straight slits give the blocks texture. Half circle units allow for extra design possibilities.

Wood Blocks for Building

Wood blocks are a choice parents like to make for their toddlers and preschoolers. Blocks made of wood just seems like the perfect first building set.  Stacking and arranging wood blocks of various sizes allows the child to learn balance and familiarizes him with a set of rules for the working of shapes, sizes and weights.

Castle blocks add a component of style to take the experience a step in an architectural direction. Form now takes a higher level and the builder can use windows, arches, turrets and stairs to build castles, bridges and fairy homes. 

Below is a picture of the set from Amazon.com.

A video from one of the shopping channels shows a booklet that comes with the set, though that is not mentioned in the Amazon information and I would not expect it. Apparently, the picture here needs two sets to complete. All these pitfalls mentioned is sometimes the nature of Made in China imports and a trusted brand name does not come with many marketed items today. I could not find any information on a company called Treehaus. 

Nonetheless, a few reviews on Amazon.com rave about how the kids are enjoying the flexibility of the set and spend hours with it.

For a birthday gift assemble the whole kit with carrying tote and action figures.

Glance at all the Various Prices

When shopping on online the spender can shop and compare prices in the comfort of their computer chair. 

Some sets look similar to Treehaus but are slightly different. Overstock.com has the set for less than Amazon when special markdowns are available.

I discovered this set in 2011 and with many toys companies tend to manufacture and then stop production. I think that is what has happened to this particular set. It's design is a little more sophisticated than many being made now. If you can not find treehaus blocks be sure to browse the other styles offered at Amazon, etc.

Storage For the Castle Blocks

The cardboard box is not going to last long especially if you have two sets. Make a tote out of an old pair of blue jeans. No castle builder would complain about that.

I wish I had had blocks like these when I was a kid. The castle look so good. I might get a set for my grandchildren so that I can play with it.
