Foster open-ended, creative, and constructive play with SoftZone Patchwork Toddler Blocks. Designed for everyday use in daycares, and preschools, and perfect for home, this 12-pack of building blocks introduces block play, color and shape recognition, and STEM activities at a young age. Building and purposeful play are essential in early childhood development and allow for abstract thinking and a chance for young builders to imagine and create one-of-a-kind designs. Encourage kids to take a hands-on approach to lead their learning while promoting problem-solving, critical thinking skills, and collaboration as they build with increasing complexity. Square blocks are the perfect size for tiny hands to carry, toss, and stack high and are quiet when they fall over without making loud crashes. Colorful STEM blocks stimulate imagination, dexterity, and spatial reasoning abilities. Set up a larger play area for safe active play and create fun color-matching games and patterns by pairing them with ECR4Kids SoftZone Patchwork Activity Mat; sold separately. The soft foam core of each piece is covered in vegan leather. The baby soft blocks arrive fully assembled allowing for more time for play.
