The Real Truth About The Lovevery Block Set (My Review)

This post may contain commissionable links. Thank you for supporting this resource.

It’s no secret that we are huge fans of Lovevery, especially the of the Play Kits and the Play Gym. Their toys have been staples in our play and my son loves them. They are some of the toys he engages with the most and they capture his attention for hours at a time. Today, I’m sharing our Lovevery Block Set review – including what’s inside and whether or not we think it’s worth it!

Check out my full Lovevery Play Kit Review here!

If you’re not familiar with Lovevery, they are Montessori-style toys and Play Kits that are stage-based so they are meant to meet your child where they are at developmentally. I love that because I know that they toys I’m providing my son with are helping his brain grow and develop.

Thoughtfully and Sustainably Made

Another thing I really love about the Lovevery line is that they are made from sustainably harvested wood and organic cotton. Not only are these things better for the environment, but they are quality materials which completely up-level the play experience.

Quality is important to me, and especially sustainability. I love that these products will last us YEARS to come. Some plastic toys we have are already one their way out and I can’t help but feel I wasted money in some ways, but I digress.

I also really like that they don’t make noise. We don’t have too many loud toys in our home because I find them overwhelming and distracting. The ones we do have come with off switches (a pro-tip for parents!) and they spend most of their time in that position.

Lovevery Block Set Review

The Block Set is a newer addition to the Lovevery product line. My son is about to turn 18 months old which is the minimum recommended age so I thought it was the perfect time to buy it and try it out!

Update: He’s now three years old and his younger brother is 12 months. They both play with and still love their blocks!

The Block Set comes with 70 pieces and retails for $90. Here is what is included:

  • 18 colorful cubes/blocks
  • 18 solid wood building planks
  • 9 geometric shapes
  • 2 arches
  • 4 solid wood people
  • 4 wheels
  • 2 dowels
  • 1 pull string
  • 1 threading string
  • 7 threadable wooden “beads”
  • Wooden storage box
  • Shape sorter lid
  • Ramp
  • Draw string bag

The Lovevery Block Set is designed for children 18-48+ months and comes with a stage-based activity guide with over 20 ideas for play.

I love that Lovevery includes these guides with their products because it’s less for me to think about as a busy parent. When I need new ideas, I can just flip through the guides and find inspiration for engaging my son in play.

I walked you through the whole guide in my video above if you’re interested in watching!

Knowing that we are helping him play with purpose gives me some peace of mind as a parent.

One of our favorite features so far is that the box converts into a toy car. My son pulled it around for AN HOUR(!!) the day we unboxed it. Anything that holds his attention that long is completely worth it in my book.

So, is the Lovevery Block Set worth it?

In my opinion – absolutely.

I have purchased all of our Play Kits and the Block Set myself. Here’s my purchase history below:

The quality is unmatched in comparison to a lot of other toys we have. Especially for the price. While $90 could seem like an investment in a toy, I think it’s really a great value, especially given that it will last and be used for years.

Plus, as I show in my video, there are so many ways to engage your child with it.

I also think it would make a fabulous gift! I definitely have it on my radar to gift in the future.

If you’re thinking about other items from Lovevery or have a younger child, I highly recommend the Play Gym and also the Play Kits. Check out my Looker Play Kit Review here.

We used the Play Gym for ages, and it turns into a tent when you’re done with the play mat part of it. My son loved it and it comes with a bunch of fabulous accessories that are detachable and grow with your child.

Here he is playing with it around 5 months old:

Thoughts on Lovevery Overall

I’m really a big fan of Lovevery. I think they make really high quality products at a great price point. I like that you get to keep them and aren’t just renting them as well.

You can get a small discount if you purchase the subscription upfront (like I did for the first year, pictured above).

We, of course, have bought him other toys but these are the toys he plays with the most and is still engaged with month after month.
