Bucket of Blocks from Back to Blocks Review (upcoming giveaway)

We received a sample in exchange for a honest and unbiased review. We were given the opportunity to review a Bucket of Blocks from Back to Blocks .


We had the opportunity to facilitate a review for a pail of Basic Building Blocks from Back To Blocks.

We try to limit the time that the kids are watching television and playing with electronics. Our toddler already has an interest in a game called Temple Run., and he often gets frustrated when it is time to turn off the television and have some play time. Play time is important and I am always on the lookout for products that help encourage the kids to use their imaginations and be creative.


We received the Hand Made Basic Builder Wooden Block Set from Back To Blocks. I was excited about getting the blocks and watching our toddler get creative with them. I remember having blocks as a child and I loved playing with them for hours.

The Basic Building Blocks come in a cute bright colored storage bucket. There are 60 wooden blocks in 10 different shapes. Their are large and small sizes, triangles, arches, and columns. These dimensions then come in the various sizes and shapes. The blocks from Back To Blocks are hand made in the USA. They made from poplar a light, sturdy, and affordable hardwood. You can be assured that the blocks comply with all children's product safety regulations, and are very safe. Their are no sharp edges or slivers.

Our toddler loves the wooden block set. He likes fitting the shapes together and stacking them. I like that they smelled so good when we got them. They are sturdy, durable blocks that I am sure after watching my toddler play with them, they will last a very long time. I really like the Back To Blocks storage bucket. Storing the blocks are easy for me and the little guy. You can choose your color bucket upon purchase of the blocks. The available colors are red, yellow, blue or white.

The wooden blocks are a great educational toy. Young children will learn shapes and sorting. They will develop fine motor skills and learn basic math and science principles. When they play with others it helps increase social skills.

Back To Blocks is a family owned and operated business, located in Kayville, Utah. Miriam and Craig Sheffield made their grandson a set of wooden blocks, just as they had made their children sets when they was young. The Sheffield's son suggested they start making sets to sell after his own son loved his blocks. All five of the Sheffield's children helped in the development of Back To Blocks. After many experiments they were ready to launch their business in 2011. They had three key items that were important to them. Their product had to be natural, have "make sense" packaging and be affordable. They frequently get asked by concerned parents if their blocks have any toxins. They say absolutely not never. They only use safe natural hardwoods for their products.

I would recommend these blocks from Back To Blocks to other parents. Every child should have a set of blocks.

  5. I love that these are homemade! My toddler has some blocks, but they aren't wooden and I prefer wooden toys over plastic ones. I like that there are six different shapes included in this set. It looks great!
