Maxim's 100 block set from their Preschool line.
This series has identical block sizes and shapes (though perhaps a slightly different block mix) as Maxim's earlier Tumble Tree Woods, as well as Imaginarium's bucket series of 50-, 100-, and 200-block sets, though it is a whiter, blander wood (rubberwood?) from Thailand, replacing the pine.
The set is very heavy on cubes and deriviative shapes, with a 30mm cube size. In additional to natural wood sets, there are colored and mixed sets, with the colored blocks mostly in very nice darker colors.
