We developed these to be used as elevation pieces for our Rubber Ramp and Discovery Ramps and have found how much kids love to use them as stand alone builders. Abstract structures spring to life as children pair and combine all the pieces. Our engineering and education departments made sure Criss-Cross Blocks were sized to work along with classroom unit blocks to offer versatility and play value!
They’re so unique and easy to assemble that kids use them all over the classroom! Use them on their own as a construction set to make buildings, platforms, fences, bridges, and towers. Offer small wooden people, animals, and vehicles for even more imaginative play. Small stuffed toys and baby dolls love to rest on them. Turned on it’s side, a Criss-Cross block can be used as 4 part sorting compartment for math manipulatives and even makes a terrific ball trap at the end of a ramp. Don’t be surprised if your children combine the pieces in all sorts of ways, pairing one tall piece with a small one and so on. Perfect for supporting fine motor development and increased spatial awareness, too! Want to expand the play? Consider pairing these unique builders with our set of Wood Biscuits
Adults love them because pairs come apart so easily to store flat. When disassembled they take up very little shelf or basket space.
