Community Playthings' first Unit Blocks in 1947 changed everything.


Quality maple hardwood, proportional modular design, precision crafted so that children could build structures that work, these principals still guide all of Community Plaything’s block designs to this day.

Their Mini sizes engage toddlers in exploring math, geometry and engineering principals.  With Hollow Blocks and Outlast Outdoor blocks the large volumes, ramps and water tubs and wheels, encourage children to actually design and build their own play structures.
