The Baby Einstein Fabric Blocks were a popular toy when my daughter was around five to ten months old. She used to love to sit and watch me stack the blocks one by one. She would then push them over, which she thought was hilarious! While stacking the blocks, I could talk to her about how the tower was getting bigger and about the pictures on the blocks. I also talked to her about the colors and had her touch them to feel the different textures. The bright colors were perfect for her age at the time. Now that she is over a year old, she prefers the wooden blocks. These, however, were a great "beginner block" for her. One of the cons to these is that they do not always stack easily. Depending on the texture of a particular side, you may have to line it up just right. Also, this toy really was only used for five to six months. I usually prefer to purchase toys that keep my daughter's interest for a bit longer.
