I bought this for my 2.75 year old daughter and it is exactly what I hoped it would be. The blocks are crisply shaped and feel substantial. They are heavy and stay where they're put, even if placed a little precariously. :-) There was a little splintered wood on one block when we opened the package, but I just brushed it away and that was the only notable imperfection I found. Also, initially the weight of the blocks made me a little nervous when they fell near my little girl, but she learned quickly that she needs to stay away from them when they fall and, really, the worst possible injury would be a small bruise, so I got over that concern. In comparison to the Melissa and Doug blocks, these are heavier and more solid. The edges are crisper too, and I do love that they are completely untreated. There are a lot of blocks, and the mix is good. Maybe when she is bigger we'll need more straight pieces to build larger structures, but at this age all the curves, triangles, and cylinders provide plenty for me to play with and lots of opportunities for her to experiment with placing the shape. So I'm very happy.

These blocks are high quality, made in Germany. That's important because reviews for other Haba building blocks products mention they are made in China and of inferior quality. I found one block that scratched my skin slightly, but I think it's normal with an unfinsihed product, so I recommend you go through all the blocks to make sure all are smooth before letting a young child play with them. I plan to buy another box. Some website online quoted that 200 blocks would last a child by age 5, so two of these boxes should be enough for years. The blocks also smell like wood which is always nice.

We bought this set of blocks for our 10 month old daughter along with the HABA fantasy blocks. Although they were expensive we feel that it was worth spending every penny to get such high quality blocks. The blocks are solid and well cut. They are all a consistent size and there are no rough edges with splinters. The particular blocks that come in this set have enough variety that we have been able to come up with some very fun and creative compositions so far. Because our daughter is so young we did store the very smallest blocks for now, but she has a great time playing with the blocks that we have out for her. She knocks down our creations, bangs blocks together, hands blocks to us and occasionally tries to place a block on a tower herself. I see us playing with these for years.
