I ordered the blocks, because they looked like the set I had growing up. And today arrived, although woot still shows that it is awaiting shipping. Regardless, the blocks are lighter than what I remember, but they should make any kid happy. It looks like they packed the blocks before some of the paint totally dried, because some of the pieces stuck to the paper that separated the different layers of blocks in the box they came in. Washing those pieces off seems to have worked in most cases.
