So not exactly what I would normally expect to be reviewing but how super timely at this point in time! And while I’m sort of thinking that I could gift them either as a library prize or to a small person of my acquaintance, I’m actually strongly tempted to have fun with them myself! Because they do look like very serious fun for all ages for sure!

If you have your children at home already – or just getting ready for the upcoming holidays or stay-at-home, these would make a terrific addition to your store of resources – or those moments when you’re in need of a sanity preserver. Of course, you could also team it with some research into medieval times sneaking in some great learning opportunities including studies of society and language.

These are very sturdy and will clearly withstand many hours of building and re-building in which kiddos can let their imaginations run riot. I think it would be uber-cool if you happened to have some little knights to add to a playscape as well.

Check them out in this video clip – fun fun fun!
