Where is a good place to buy Unit blocks?

I was talking to DH last night I was thinking that our son may like unit blocks for his birthday. I know he is young (all the ones I have found have said 3 and up) but I think children younger then 3 can benefit from blocks.

We want a set that would last through all of our children and we can have one day for our grandchildren.

Thanks for the help!

We have the blocks from Math-U-See, but I don't think those are the kids of unit blocks you are looking for. I would just go to a local teacher store and see what they have there.

If it is the kind that you "stick together" I would go to a store to check them out. In my experience (as a teacher) there are alot of them that are REALLY difficult to push together. Even the elementary school kids can't do it. I got rid of a bunch of them because I had one brand that none of the kids could use.

I would take your little one with you to test them out.

I am realizing your little one is really little - are you just talking about wooden blocks? I would say a teacher store as well - otherwise I would go online. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Yes I am looking for the plain wooden blocks that work together (not stick together). I know lots of preschools have them (actually I think all that I have ever been in).

There was a teacher supply store near me but it closed a couple of months ago. Now I don't know where to go. Is there a site online that is recomended?
