Galt Baby Soft Blocks
Advantages: Colourful, teaches matching pairs, soft and washable
These blocks were bought for my youngest daughter as a gift when she was born, the blocks are made by Galt which is a company that makes lots of baby products and I have yet to find a bad product from them.
The blocks can be bought from high street stores as well as being available on the internet and they cost in the region of £12 for a packet of 6 different blocks.
The blocks come packaged in a see through plastic bag which has strong carry handles on it and it opens and closes with a flap at the top which is secured by Velcro. There is no packaging so to speak only a little folded piece of cardboard which is attached to the bag when you get it.
The blocks are very brightly coloured which of course is to attract young children to them. The blocks are suitable from birth as they are simply material filled with foam so there is no way any harm could come to your baby as long as you supervise the baby with them.
My daughter seemed to like it when we shook these in front of her when she was a month or so old which is probably because of the colours and as one of the blocks has a bell inside it. When she was a little older we would give her one to hold and she enjoyed shaking it around herself and then made a game of throwing the block to get us to pick it back up for her. As my daughter got a little older again we would play with her stacking the blocks on top of each other and let her knock them down and now she is nearly 2 she is able to stack the 6 blocks up herself although she doesn't manage all 6 very often without it toppling.
Each side of each cube has brightly coloured pictures on, there are simple day to day things such as teddy bears and washing lines with different clothes on them and there are a number of farm animals and insects. Each animal has a pair to it so that your child can match them into their pairs, there are 6 different teddies doing different activities such as reading books so we use this for our daughter to find all the teddies.
I like that they come packaged as they do as it means that there is somewhere to keep the blocks when they are not being played with which is great as in our house there are toys everywhere. Another thing I like about these blocks is that the covers are on the foam fastened with Velcro so you can remove them and wash them which keeps them looking like new.
We love these blocks and every now and again even my 5 year old will still play with them, they are a great toy from birth which I find a good thing as there are not really many toys that are suitable from birth but will still provide enjoyment for an older child.
These blocks are great value for money, there are loads of ways to play with them and my daughter really enjoys playing with them.
Summary: A great set of blocks
