Made for tiny hands and to stimulate logic development, Gorilla Blocks toys are large in size, but light in weight. Bright in color, durable, non-toxic, weatherproof and simple to use, Gorilla Blocks are the perfect introductory building blocks for young kids.

Gorilla Blocks huge colorful building blocks provide a world of gigantic fun as toddlers experience the fascination of building them up and knocking them down.
