“My three year old son absolutely adores his SMARCKS. He will sit and play with them forever building giant structures and trying to get them to talk. I also notice that he will recite the phrases that the blocks say which I LOVE because the blocks have such great messages for kids. We all love to sing the song too! I can definitely highly recommend these blocks to anyone with young children. Thank you SMARCKS!”

The Smart Blocks are great! I took them to my daughter’s occupational therapy today. Very shortly we had all the kids in the place at the time (and the occupational therapist!) playing with them, figuring out how to work them and trying to see everything they do. My daughter is 20 months old and has developmental delays so while she can’t yet make the blocks work herself, she loves the sounds and lights and smiles when the song comes on. She dances to it as well! She was actively reaching for the blocks too–which helps her achieve her reaching goal in OT! I was very impressed with how well they are made, how they work, and how they kept the children engrossed and actively trying to solve the puzzles to make them do more. This is a toy we will be able to play with and enjoy for years to come and as my daughter catches up in her delays I know she will be thrilled to be able to make them work herself. Thanks again for this great product.

“I gave Angel his Smart Blocks today, and I don’t even have the words to express what looked like JOY while he played with them. He absolutely loved them. He stacked and played and piled one block on top of another…He had to be strapped into his car seat, still stacking blocks. I can’t tell you how happy this made me. When I got home, I couldn’t wait to tell Allen, and he was as surprised as I was…but it’s just as you say on your web site: Kids love blocks; they love to put together blocks…but these blocks teach. (It’s my goal for this child to be one of the smartest kindergartners in Myrtle Beach, if not the smartest!) This was such a happy experience for me. Thank you so much for the extra blocks. If ever a gift landed in the right place, it was your gift!”

“I don’t know who came up with the idea for these blocks but they have been a wonder for my handicapped son. He loves these blocks. He gets so excited when we pull the blocks out to play with them. Now my son has the whole set, I will be ordering another set for my niece for her birthday in March. These blocks are awesome!!! Thank you so much.”

“I am a retired high school math teacher, and am so excited about the “fun” way math is presented to the little ones, (especially the little girls). During my years teaching I encountered so many girls that were afraid of math, or thought that it was a “boy” thing, etc. I don’t want my granddaughters to develop those feelings about math.
Your blocks are great!!”
Leanne Wasielewski, Solana Beach California, Kindergarten Teacher & Mother
“My 2 year old son was teeming with excitement as he eagerly immersed himself in building and singing along with his favorite new building blocks—SMARCKS. It is evident the creative team responsible for developing this educational toy, not only has a solid foundation of educational practice, they are child centered and understand what it takes to intrinsically motivate a child resulting in fun, enduring understanding and learning. I cannot wait to share this toy with others!”
Charlotte Bohn, Baltimore’s Child Magazine
“I have to say that my son LOVES these blocks and I can’t wait to run a review of them in Baltimore’s Child. I am shooting for it to appear in November or December. Congrats on Smart Blocks being selected as one of Dr. Toys Best Picks!”

“Your blocks are awesome. Our Granddaughter loves them and what a great idea you came up with. Can’t wait till she gets older and we can add to them. Thanks again.”
Wanda, 1st Grade teacher
“I was extremely pleased to see a little boy who has a few developmental delays with fine motor skills, reading, and writing take the instructions and lead the other kids in putting the puzzle together. They worked cooperatively and followed directions with no extra help from me. That makes it a great activity for the classroom.”
Kristin, Vista California, Daycare Center Teacher
“What a great way for children to explore using their fine motor skills while learning colors, alphabet, etc. They played with the blocks longer than regular blocks trying to find the ones that talk. Awesome idea!”
