Cute but the wood is kinda light

I decided to order this block bc my son started on Chinese Mandarin Preschool and wanted him to be familiar with some characters.THey are lighter than the original ABC blocks also by Uncle Goose that I got him years ago. The wood is lighter in color as compared to the original blocks we got. I like that the color is brighter. But the wood is significantly lighter and when it falls or hit the edge of furniture it would leave little dents. Some wood kinda chip off a little…My son doesn’t mind them but I wish they were of better quality.

Cute, fun, and educational

Our son is learning both English and Chinese. It is very hard to find a lot of Chinese toys that meet our standards, but this one exceeds them. Very well built, even good for his father to learn Chinese.

High Quality

These are beautiful blocks that are light, well-made, and brightly colored. My 1 year old loves to play with them. One caveat, they are blocks in the true sense, meaning they don’t have rounded edges. But they are certainly made to last as a child grows with them. The sides are structured as follows: 1. a Chinese character in red, 2. the same Chinese character in yellow along with the English translation, 3. a picture of what the character means along with the pinyin of the character, 4. A graph of the strokes to write the character, 5. a number written in Chinese characters with along with the English translation, 6. a portion of a puzzle. When all 32 pieces are placed together for the puzzle it forms the PRC flag, a yellow dragon, and a map of Mainland China.

These are great!

We ordered these for my son’s 1st birthday (he’s 1/2 chinese) and they are of excellent quality and he loves playing and stacking them. Excellent purchase!

well made and really helpful

I bought these for my children, who are being brought up bilingual. These have been great. The kids are able to pair the characters with the images. I know that these will be in use for years. And they are so well made. They are expensive for what they are but I think they are worth it.
