Gorilla Blocks

Gorilla BlocksGorilla Blocks; Made in the USA by Child Guidance. Retails from $14.99 to $49.99, recommended ages 18 months to 7 years. Single Block: 3.5"W x 3.5"L x 3.6"H. Double Block: 3.5"W x 7"L x 3.6"H. Triple Block: 3.5"W x 10.5"L x 3.6"H.

Gorilla Blocks are durable and conscientiously non-toxic, made out of expanded polypropylene foam — a tough, resilient, and lightweight closed cell material that is moisture and chemical resistant. So they are great for indoors or out.

The green, blue, orange and yellow foam blocks come in a starter set of 14 blocks, a standard set of 24 blocks, an animal theme set of 30 blocks, and a jumbo set of 50 blocks. Kids can play for hours with these oversized, interlocking blocks. The single blocks are approximately 3½ inch square. That's a nice size for a small hand to manage. They are incredibly light and in the event of a block fling I can't imagine any bruising other than feelings. Toddlers and big kids can have loads of fun with Gorilla Blocks. The smaller sets are fine for the younger kids, but for the older more inventive kids I would recommend going with the larger sets. The smaller sets are kind of limiting for the creative preschooler. What kids can make with these blocks is only limited to their imaginations, including anything from simple to life-size creations.

An added bonus : they clean up easily with soap and water, and are also great fun in the bathtub.
