Hawkin's Bazaar Alphabet Wood Blocks Review

Everywhere I look I seem to be greeted with toys made from cheap thin plastic that looks like it is going to snap at any given moment. There are wooden toys on the market however most seem to be way out of my price range or they're made very flimsy. 
Things are changing! 

I was given the opportunity to review these Alphabet Wood Blocks from Hawkins Bazaar and I have to admit, I am in love with them! (So much so, I've probably played with them more than any of the kids have).

Retailing at £17, I found this amazing set of 48 wooden blocks extremely good value for money. They came well presented in a solid wooden storage box making it easy to store them all together when they're not being played with.

They are painted very gender neutral, in primary colours (and green) and contain letters, numbers, symbols and pictures on each block. 

The blocks aren't just fun, they are also extremely educational too. My 3 year old has recently learnt how to write her name and although these are all written in capital letters, she was still able to pick out the first letter of her name. She is also learning her numbers currently so it was an added bonus that this set included numbers. 
My 19 month old enjoyed building the blocks into a tower and knocking them down making these blocks an aid in her motor skills, hand eye coordination and spacial skills. 


Since we received these Alphabet Wood Blocks, they have been played with for hours! Matching letters, grouping colours, matching pictures and building towers. 

Overall, I am extremely happy with this product. They are a high quality, aesthetically pleasing, classic educational toy that will result in hours of fun for both my toddler and preschooler.
