2-3 years / Baby set of 16 pieces. Research on the EU toy standards shows that children of this age are just starting to develop their construction skills. Therefore block play slowly becomes more and more actual. At this age they are not interested in many blocks, rather than the mechanics of stacking.
16 pieces are a good starter kit as it allows to explore the basic numeracy, story telling and personalisation endeavours.
3 years + / Preschooler set of 32 pieces. Is perfect for complex construction projects, ideal Montessori material to teach calendar, alphabet, advanced numeracy and much more. Also, this is ideal if you have several children
Classroom set of 100 pieces. As the name suggests it is designed for classroom use. Usually split between classes and groups.
