The Estate of Charley Harper/Courtesy
I have been in contact with AMMO Books regarding their children’s products. In return for a review, I was provided a set of nesting blocks and a coloring book both with designs from Charley Harper. Aside from receiving these items, I am not receiving any compensation for this review.
About a year ago, my mom found a Charley Harper board book for Dash. My mom is an artist and has an appreciation for art, mostly beautiful art and sometimes a bit funky.
I think that Charley Harper was a little bit of both using bright colors and simple shapes.
I was excited to learn about these products and interested in seeing what my superstars would do with them.
Let me begin by completely disclosing my initial feelings about the Nesting Blocks. They are made out of plastic coated cardboard, so when we pulled them out of the box, I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t seem to be very sturdy. But as soon as I pulled them out for JackJack and Dash to discover, I was pleasantly surprised.
As you can see, JackJack found them absolutely delicious to stick in his mouth. With all that baby slobber, they stood the test. I was very impressed. The superboys loved playing with these blocks. I believe the blocks colors attracted the boys to them. They are great boxes! As they played with them longer and longer, I grew to like them more and more.
I didn’t think the boys would be able to play so completely with the boxes. “What can you do with a bunch of boxes?” was my thought.
Well, I was eating humble pie in a matter of minutes as the superboys were happily preoccupied!
