I love the quality and craftsmanship of this item. The concept of time is difficult for young children to grasp at an early age. I've always used the phrase to my own children, “this many sleeps until…” to help them understand how long before going to grandma's or vacation.
Now, they are saying this to their children.
I can't wait to give this to my youngest granddaughter!
I will be ordering more sets!

I've only had this for a few weeks and we've already done two countdowns (for a birthday and for summer break). Whenever something is over the kids always want to know what's next, and this is a fun way to celebrate looking forward to events. Also, really great quality that will last for a long time. It was hard to find a countdown that could be used for multiple things, not just birthdays for example. The heart with the numbers is cute too.

This was the perfect gift for my MIL. She loves summer and vacation and her birthday, so this was as if it was made for her with Christmas as a bonus! The blocks are small and simple and fit in with any decor!
