OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Stacking toys are always a hit and Highlights Mix-and-Match Monster Blocks are mixing it up. 

Unlike other stacking toys, these blocks go between the posts, not on them. 

This is a toy that grows with your child for a bit longer since there are many learning opportunities here.  At first, simply let your little one explore the blocks. Feel how smooth they are. Have your child run a finger up and down the groove on the sides of each block. 

As kids develop their dexterity, they can also stack them up and knock them down. Kids will soon discover that if a flat block is placed on top of a curved block, it falls off. But when the curved edge is placed on the floor, it will rock. Parents can also show little one how to align both sides at once. This takes a great deal of fine-motor control. If your child becomes frustrated, try running just one groove of a block up and down an outer post on the pegging base. 

Other ways to play include making up stories, making silly combinations, hunting for blocks around the room, and more.
