Did you have a favorite toy growing up?
I had a few.
My dolls didn’t do anything special, I made them walk, talk and dressed them on my own.
I can’t remember the name of them, but they were filled with water and they had rings and fish on the inside. On the outside was 2 buttons you pushed. You tried to catch the fish or put the rings on the pole. I guess those was our video games in lets say the early 70’s
I had wooden blocks, plastic blocks, I had blocks that were really wooden beads.
Back in those days, toys helped to develop our imagination. I can remember my mom telling when she was younger. Hers were toys she made herself out of sticks and mud, straw or whatever she could find. I guess compared to hers the ones I had were high tech.
Gradually toys are really going robotic and really high tech. Kids doesn’t need to use their imagination near as much and I think that is sad. While these toys are great and cute, I feel that kids still need to use their imagination. Even if it is with a set of blocks.
One company is still making toys that will encourage and help the child grow. This company is a company that makes a block called Wedgits.
what can wedgits do for your child?
With Wedgits you will find 6 different sized (non choking size) square donut shaped blocks.

The Imagination Starter set of building block toys provide six (6) different sized blocks that are all “non-choking”. Sometimes referred to as square donuts the Starter Imagination set has an easy play design that has nesting and stacking features for young hands. With all parts big enough to keep out of a choke tube you are assured of comfortable play for toddlers and older siblings.
These Starter set building blocks assure that there is no wrong way to build. The open-ended design of WEDGiTS building blocks introduce the spatial world of angles, shapes, color patterning, matching and creative play. The WEDGiTS Starter set is compatible with all standard WEDGiTS products making it a toy that will grow with your child.
Each Imagination set comes with a product guide showing ideas of different designs for each child to build. The term “wedgits” came from the toy’s symmetrical design that allows the blocks to actually wedge together using pure friction. (All WEDGiTS sets are 100% compatible.)
I really love these and so does my nephew! He is a really creative little boy and loves making his action figures talk on his own, he also loves to build and this set will entertain him for hours. I am excited to find out what other types of sets Wedgits has available! If you have a child or one in your life, be sure and check out these wedits on their website and at Target.
