What is it

This colourful set of wooden blocks is excellently designed for building the perfect tower. There are insets and pegs to connect the blocks together and a mixture of shapes to explore.

They are made from high quality FSC certified birch from well managed forests and coloured with eco stains. All VARIS Stacking Blocks sets are compatible with one another, so you can build and build!

What our experts think

The colourful VARIS building blocks were very popular with our little testers – they took a lot of pride in the towers they had built, but had even more enjoyment knocking them down! Working out how to build a successful tower boosts problem solving and logical thinking skills. Handling the lovely wooden blocks is good for improving hand and arm strength as well as coordination. Construction is a really good creative activity and we found that some of our testers also enjoyed using the blocks for imaginative play, e.g. making a house for a toy figure.

The design of the blocks was ideal as they were easy for even young children to use. The different colours and shapes are a great way to teach children colour and shape recognition. It would be nice if there were more blocks in the set (children really loved making the biggest towers they could!) but the VARIS block sets can be combined, so if this is a big hit in your household you can get as many as you want!
