Recently I conducted a review/giveaway for CSN Stores. Their stores really have a variety of products to choose from, but again I went for toys and enjoyed browsing and deciding what to pick for my Mouse. Eventually, I chose Wedgits Deluxe. I was a bit miffed with the price of this set at CSN Stores – it was a lot more expensive that at Amazon, but CSN Stores promotion team  has explained to me later that there is an option to submit a competing price from online competitor during check out process, and that CSN Stores will then honor the lower price. It’s good to know since I am hoping to buy from them in the future, and I was very pleased with delivery speed – the package was at our house in 2 days, and Anna couldn’t wait to open it.

July10_Wedgits2Since both of us are engineers, we always encourage our daughter to play with construction toys. But everything turns to food for her in no time at all. Wedgits have become icecream and layered cakes, and she was building different cakes for different holidays of the year. She was also busy sorting out her “ingredients” by color – the white ones are, of course, marshmallows. She has yet to display any interest in building intricate designs, but she definitely has a lot of fun with them and has them out every day since we got them.

Come over and play at Childhood 101.

We love Wedgits. I would like to get another set to add to the one we have.

Maybe Anna will be a chef!

I had a similar experience with CSN Stores and Amazon, it's good to know they will price match!

Those white wedgits would make perfect marshmallows =)

I looked at these, but Selena still isn't into building. She really could care less about anything resembling blocks.

I also have been looking at these. I still haven't chosen something for my product review. Bear isn't all that into construction, but is definitely into pretending that all is food (especially food like cookies, cakes, marshmallows, and icecream. She and Anna would get along great I think:)

Thanks for letting us know about the price matching.

Yummy wedgits! :)

Good to know they price match but we have only shopped on amazon...perhaps, if they offer me a giveaway, I'll try them too! :)

I've seen Wedgits around, and your post has made me think they might be worth getting at some point.

I love that they became food for her! A girl after my own heart :)

We've seen Wedgits in a couple of places - a museum and a teaching store. The teaching store has them out on a very cool base table that you can build right into. I think I like them more than Tornado Boy for now. They're on his birthday list, we'll have to see if anyone picks them out.
