Here is a mini-playground for the hands and mind - shapes, stacking, sorting, free-form building and everything in between. Based on a toy the creator received for his birthday in 1942, the all-wood Wagon of Blocks is varnished in 100% canola oil and breaks down into 40 different pieces. CircaToys is family-owned and operated in Franklin, NC. The Wagon of Blocks is approved for children aged 6 months and up and is a Tillywig Brain Child Award Winner.

"Wagon of Blocks was inspired by a gift I received as a child and has been in our family for three generations. I hope our toy will bring fun and creativity to generation after generation of Meijer customers' families the way it did for mine."
