    Comments about PERIODIC TABLE BUILDING BLOCKS:

    I bought this as a gift for a new baby. The family loves it because their older child can play with them, and the sciency-ness allows for some great dad jokes. (Hand blocks with Na and Cl on them to the kid, say "hold the salt," laugh maniacally.)

        I don't know who will have more fun with these blocks: the 1 year old or his Dad! His Dad is a self-described science nerd, and will just love his son's first birthday gift.

          My son said that the blocks are the perfect size for little toddler hands. They were also amazing in her first-year photo session. They are colorful and her Dad spelled out a few words with the elements, PlAy and ThInK, for the photos.

          Colorful and fun! Who does not love building blocks? In addition, you're child can get a head start on chemistry! Just do not step on the blocks, they can really hurt. Great gift for toddler.

                  The package arrived early and was a real
                  winner with my grandson who is a student and
                  needed to learn the Periotic Table this year.
                  He was thrilled with this hands on learning tool.
                  The blocks were well made and easy to handle.
                  It turned out to be the perfect gift for him.

                    Our son-in-law is a Chemical Engineer, and he and our daughter have a 20 month old daughter. I purchased this set of blocks as a gift for our son-in-law, because I knew be would enjoy using them to start to teach our granddaughter about the periodic table in a fun way.

                        This product enchanted the self-described "nerdy" first time parents. The blocks were colorful, fun, and contained elements that this "soft-science" major had no idea existed. Perhaps, I need a set for myself? Kudos, guys for a really cool product!
