Galt's Soft Blocks are a wonderful addition to your child's playroom. Children 6 months and older love to stack, throw, squeeze, and play with these soft foam, fabric covered blocks. They can learn to match the 12 pairs of animals, make a tower, or line them up. The Soft Blocks were designed to help children develop color and number recognition, hand-eye coordination, and even learn to count from 1 - 6. Each block measures 4''. They're machine washable, too, for your convenience. All Galt products meet the American, Canadian, British and European safety standards. Galt began as a schoolbook seller in 1836, and is now a brand leader in quality developmental and creative products for children.
