What our experts think
The colourful VARIS building blocks were very popular with our little testers – they took a lot of pride in the towers they had built, but had even more enjoyment knocking them down! Working out how to build a successful tower boosts problem solving and logical thinking skills. Handling the lovely wooden blocks is good for improving hand and arm strength as well as coordination. Construction is a really good creative activity and we found that some of our testers also enjoyed using the blocks for imaginative play, e.g. making a house for a toy figure.
The design of the blocks was ideal as they were easy for even young children to use. The different colours and shapes are a great way to teach children colour and shape recognition. It would be nice if there were more blocks in the set (children really loved making the biggest towers they could!) but the VARIS block sets can be combined, so if this is a big hit in your household you can get as many as you want!
