Sound blocks a wonderful sensory toy. Not only are they great for babies, but toddlers love them as well.

- Sound blocks are excellent for improving visual perception.
- They help develop the senses of touch, hearing and vision.
- Sound blocks can also be used with sunlight to create colorful shadows!
- It’s a versatile toy that can even be used for beginner stacking and building.
- We also love sound blocks because they look so beautiful on a window sill.

- Wonderworld Rainbow Sound Blocks Whenever possible, we try to buy natural, non-toxic, organic things. When Adèle was a baby, this was even more true as she was putting everything in the mouth. I chose these sounds blocks for her because they are made from environmentally friendly wood, use non-toxic paints, dyes, and lacquers and do not contain formaldehyde glue. After two years of use, despite being thrown and tossed around, they do not even have a scratch on them. Each piece is of a different transparent color and they are fun to look through. It’s a great tool to teach shapes and colors. Each piece makes a different sound and can be used as rattles as well. The box creates an extra interesting challenge because the child has to figure out how to lift it and how to drop the pieces back inside. It might seem useless, but I think it’s a great addition which helps teach toddlers how to put things back in their place. Furthermore, it also serves as a stacking and building toy. There aren’t enough pieces to make something big, but definitely enough as a first building set. An all around great educational toy which will last. It’s also perfect for Montessori families.
