The jungle Buddy Blocks include six animals: giraffe, lion, elephant, zebra, monkey, and a yak or something. I really should know what that final animal is, but I don't.
When they first arrived, every single one of my kids took a turn with them, wanting to put together each animal themselves. Every single child, even the teens and middlers. Eventually, it returned to being something my preschoolers only play with. But every time I get them out, this happens ...

And then this happens ...
Everyone wants in on the fun, but the 1 year old doesn't like to wait her turn. And because the one year old loves the wooden blocks so much, we have to keep the Buddy Blocks put up high between uses. Here's the culprit who lost all the pieces in different parts of the living room yesterday ... again.
"But I like the Buddy Blocks, too!" --Messmaking Expert
The Buddy Blocks are high quality and lots of fun. The only problem with this learning tool is that we keep losing pieces! Our solution is to keep it stored up high on the bookshelf until someone asks for it. We definitely recommend them for your toddlers and preschoolers!
