Review for Rainbow Sound BlocksAn Educational Toy for Toddlers and Kindergarteners, But Not a Science Toy

Our experience with Rainbow Sound Blocks indicates that they make an excellent educational toy for any young children below the elementary school age. Rainbow Sound Blocks are mainly building blocks that rattle. Their main function is to entertain young children while teaching them basic shape, color and sound recognition skills.

If you are buying Rainbow Sound Blocks for a science class, you may get disappointed. Rainbow Sound Blocks are not meant to be used for science experiments. Color combinations do not display perfectly when blocks of different colors are put together. The sound that’s coming from small beads rattling inside the blocks is not tuned and not musical by any means.
