Parent's Choice Review of the larger Four Elements Building Set:
Earth. Air. Fire. Water. Each of the four elements is represented in this innovative building set. More like waves or organic forms than traditional geometric blocks, these distinctive building shapes create mountain ranges, swirling oceans, alien landscapes, winding highways, futuristic skylines, and a gallery of sculptures. These beautifully colored shapes are eco-friendly in materials as well as longevity. This is, in our opinion, an heirloom toy. ©2011 Parents' Choice
