Toys"R"Us had an interesting looking block set with a $9.99 sale sticker, but it was the additional 30% off that made me bring it home. The container says "5 shapes" but there are nine. Not a bad little set.

The natural wood blocks turn out to be exactly the same as the Tumble Tree Woods I posted about a bit ago. I presume they were made in the same factory.

That means they are also size and shape match for the current Maxim Prechool 30mm block sets, though the unpainted woods are different. I'm not sure how the painted blocks will comapre for color and finish, but I am curious.

The lid to this set has shaped holes for use as a sorting toy. I found that rather a pleasant activity, as I was picking up the blocks.
