About the Alphabet 10-Piece Nest and Stack Blocks
The higher the stack, the better the crash. Small children love to make the highest stacks of blocks that they can, and the Alphabet Nest and Stack Blocks set from Melissa & Doug is guaranteed to satisfy: these lightweight nesting blocks can be stacked into a tower that’s nearly 3 feet high!
The Alphabet Nest and Stack Blocks are designed to spur learning, physical activity, and creativity. Here’s a quick rundown:
- Learning: Each colorful alphabet block is printed with several capital letters and numbers, and features animals and objects starting with the letters on the block. For instance, one block has a cow blowing out candles on a cake. The number of stripes on each block also corresponds to the numbers on the block, encouraging kids to count. Ask your child to identify the letters, or the sounds that the animals make.
- Physical activity: Kids improve their motor skills by stacking and nesting the blocks.
- Creativity: There’s a lot to do with these blocks! Stack the blocks, nest them, line them up; put other toys in them and give them as “presents”; use them as chairs and tables for a doll tea party; build a mountain for an action figure to climb, and more. We can’t tell you what sort of play ideas your child will come up with for her Alphabet Nest and Stack Blocks – that’s up to her. But do feel free to tell us when you rate this product!
The Melissa & Doug Alphabet Nest and Stack Blocks are made with premium heavy-grade cardboard which is sturdy enough for years of play, and can be wiped clean. And because they’re cardboard, there are no ouches when the blocks fall down, which they will do again, and again, and again! For ages 2 and up.
