"Prepare to be amazed" is the first line on the back of the box of millergoodman's ShapeMaker blocks. We could not agree more! We were so amazed at the quality, craftsmanship and innovation of this toy when we first cracked open the box and continue to be the more we play with it. This set of blocks is destined to be a classic in our household. For now, Avery enjoys the different animals and designs that we form with the blocks but it won't be too long before she creates some of her own!
