PRODUCT: HABA Building Block Technics (www.haba.co.uk)Haba Building Blocks Technics

DESCRIPTION: A set of wooden construction blocks including clamps, clutches, wheels and axles for constructing a variety of vehicles and structures. Available in a 26-piece or 49-piece set. Suitable for children aged 3 to 10 years.

GOOD POINTS: The HABA Building Block Technics are a range of wonderfully durable construction sets, which are perfect for enabling young children to express their creative side, and are compatible with HABA's other wooden construction sets

The sets are of a very high quality, and consist of a number of sturdy beech wooden blocks, several of which are coloured (green, blue, red and brown) with water-based solvent-free lacquers. The sets also contain a mixture of plastic clamps, clutches and wheels which hold the blocks together and enable them to be transformed into an endless number of vehicles, including trains, cars and fire engines to name a few.

The sets are likely to appeal to a wide age range, particularly boys. The wooden pieces are a perfect size for small hands to manage, and younger children can develop their coordination and motor skills through simply stacking the blocks together, while older children can use the additional parts to construct more advanced structures, as well as using their imagination to assemble and adapt new models! Furthermore, such play will help develop their spatial awareness, and also introduce basic physics, such as gravity and dynamic forces.

In our opinion, this is a very good quality product, which adds a new and more creative dimension to traditional wooden building blocks, and provides a host of developmental benefits to children of all ages.

BAD POINTS: The sets are a little expensive but you get very good quality for your money. May have limited appeal for children at the upper end of the recommended age range. The sets do not come with their own storage container (excluding the cardboard packaging).

PRICE: 26-piece £39.99; 49-piece set £62.99
