Larsen Toy Lab *Review #giftguide

Larsen Toy Lab was founded by siblings Alex and Courtney on a mission to provide unforgettable toys that will last for generations. They fondly remember the treasured block set their Dad crafted for them when they were young, and wanted to share that joy of building with others. 

Made in the USA!  All of the materials are locally sourced with the Northwest. All of the wood, the canvas bags, printing for the boxes and cards for the games are sourced locally. The group of people that harvest the wood for the toys practice selective harvesting, ensuring responsible and sustainable use of Vermont forests.

They are also involved in Trees for the Future where they have pledged to plant a tree for every set of blocks sold, reducing their own footprint.

Most of their blocks are left completely natural (Naked Maple), the Cherry blocks are coated with a  light Beeswax finish. 
Block Party  pictured above is the perfect holiday gift for youngsters. It includes 41 blocks with cards and instructions to play 3 games; Pair Up, Ten Towers, and Strike Out. And of course you can just use the blocks to build an awesome structure for your dolls or match box cars!

The blocks are a fantastic combination of Cherry and Maple wood in a variety of sizes. You get a beautiful selection, and enough to actually  make a great project with. I have always disliked buying a set of building blocks where you didn't have the ability to make much due to the limited amount of blocks. Each block is handcrafted and individually beveled. You can get free personalization as well, I love that this special set of blocks is specifically for Maverick!

The games with the block party offer an array of challenges and fun for ages 3+
Who doesn't love building with blocks? I am so excited for Maverick to have this building set for years to come and to be able to share it with nieces and nephews and eventually his own children. This is a high quality set that will last for generations!

In addition to Block Party, you can purchase the games separately. You can also get the Classic blocks in a variety of sizes as well. Be sure to add Larsen Toy Lab to your gift giving list this holiday season! Support small, Made in the USA businesses!
