I bought these for my one year old two years ago and they have been thoroughly played with by him, his big brother and visiting friends ever since. They're still perfect - not one chip or dent. The quality is amazing - the colours seem stained into the wood and have a lovely tactile finish. I never seen another make of blocks as nice as these. They are beautifully decorated with lovely details - mirrors, bells, clear blocks. The set is not that big but large enough for lots of different arrangements - cities, vehicles, obstacle courses being favourites in our house. Since buying these we've built up our collection of Haba wooden blocks and we now use these in conjunction with the fabulous Haba wooden marble run. Definitely a toy to keep and hand down to the next generation.

Bought this for baby age 14mths for Christmas (the manufacturers age is 12mths on the box not 3yrs as suggested in product description). They are beautifully made high quality blocks as is reflected in the price and far more interesting than the cheaper alternatives. I would however say that the blocks were smaller than I expected (only 2cm length for the squares) and there are only 24 blocks/shapes. If there were a few more I would have given this 5 stars but I am not sure how many combinations one will be able to make with only 24 blocks/shapes so ito value for money it is very expensive for what you get.
