The blocks are beautifully made and for a child who is interested in detail (presidential portraits, number, positioning on the grid, etc.) this is a wonderful toy. If you are interested solely in building towers and other structures, select a different set with varied sizes and shapes. This set is less for building than puzzling out a timeline of presidential history and enjoying the texture and look of a solid, well-made toy. These would work well in a classroom fo years of use but home use is great too. This is a learning tool that doesn't make learning taste like medicine.

Was hoping this could be an item the kids grow up with, as the blocks are the size of most toddler blocks. However, the paint chips off easily...so my daughter can't play with them. Must put them away until she studies US History.

      The blocks was a gift for my son. This completely help both my son and my husband to learn something they both love! history. The only thing I didn't really like was how sharp the edges were. For a 18-month old, he can hurt himself.

            My son plays with these blocks for hours on end. He has learned about all American presidents, their political parties, their nicknames, etc. he loves having his daddy or I mix up the blocks and remove one. Then he goes to work reordering the blocks and determing which block is missing. He's an expert by now, but he still loves the game, one of his own invention. These blocks have given him numerous hours of entertainment, amd we're happy that he's using his time to expand his knowledge of American history.

              My son is a history buff. I was nervous about giving him this as it was not the typical plastic star wars x fighter model. He was very happy with the gift and unlike most of the other stuff he gets, this looks good when left out on the coffee table.

                Comments about UncommonGoods President Block Set:

                Love the blocks! Very nice quality and appear to be durable. Only complaint was there were 2 duplicate blocks (& 2 presidents missing). I contacted the company directly (contact info was on packaging) and am awaiting replacement blocks. They sounded willing to remedy the problem. Will provide update when we see customer service response on missing blocks.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Uncommon Goods did a great job with delivery of the original order.

                Arrived in great condition.

                Awaiting response from the product vendor's customer service (have not been in touch w/ Uncommon goods CS).
