I received an eco bricks building set to facilitate this review. I was not financially compensated for this post. My opinions are my own and not by any means influenced by any other part.
Earth day is quickly approaching ( Friday, April 22nd) and to commemorate that day I wanted to introduce you to Once Kids and their Eco-friendly toys! Made from Cherry Wood, their toys are an environmentally friendly alternative to other wood products. Once Kids has reinvented classic building blocks into a unique, fun and of course better alternative for the mother earth type of building block.
Once Kids’ catalog is comprised of wooden building blocks but also different creative and artsy toys that your kids will love…Actually, many of these toys would be just as great as a décor touch for the kid’s room…Décor that the kids can play with, I call that a win- win situation!
For this review, I received the eco bricks 250 pieces building blocks set which comes in a laser engraved logo wooden storage box that looks nice and vintage…Great to keep with the earthy theme and to keep your blocks stored when not in use.
This is the first time I have seen a building block set made of wood and I must say, I really like this approach to this classic toy.
The eco bricks 250 pieces building blocks set includes:
10pcs – 4 Dot Covers
200pcs – 8 Dot Wooden Bricks
20pcs – 8 Dot Wooden Covers
14pcs – 16 Dot Wooden Bases
6pcs – 16 Dot Axel with Wheels
I love the fact that the building blocks are made from cherry wood which is a more eco-friendly alternative to some other types of wood products that are made from old growth forest. I also certainly love the fact that the blocks are not painted, so you have the option to paint, stain and even carve (obviously older kids with adult supervision) your block which can be a very fun activity to do with the kids not to mention that opens a world of possibilities for your building blocks!
One thing I have to mention is that some of the pieces are small, so this should not be around kids less than 4 years old as they can pose as a choking hazard!
The building blocks are well-made and feature great craftsmanship and attention to details….They are also compatible with major building blocks brands. Love the look; love the feel and the concept behind these toys!
Great birthday presents and for kid’s play rooms, the eco bricks 250 pieces building blocks set has a retail price of $ 70.00 which is more than you would pay for a traditional plastic set, but you are getting an Eco-friendly and more artistic version of the building blocks.
Once Kids has kindly offered one lucky Born 2 Impress reader, the chance to win a free eco bricks 250 pieces building blocks set!
