Are your children interested in all things FARM? Animals like sheep, chickens, cows, pigs, rabbits, even soaring hawks? What a great class trip or play theme a farm can be. How about a ZOO? How much fun is it to go to the zoo – with camels, hippos, elephants, crocodiles, parrots, and giraffes?

When Laurel Tucker, Co-Founder of Bright Day Big Blocks set out to design the new Big ANIMAL Blocks that’s exactly what she had in mind. Almost like creating a field trip without leaving the actual school or play center. She wanted to create something fun and adventurous, big and kid-sized, soft and loving, providing theme play which encourages active learning, and an opportunity for the child to engage emotionally, really connect and make a new friend.

“We always love observing, watching children play, we learn so much” says Laurel Tucker, “when children play with our Big Blocks it simply magical, quite transformational – and when they play with our ANIMAL Blocks their play takes on a whole new dimension. Children really emotionally connect with our ANIMALS – they find their favorite, they carry them around the play space, hug and kiss them, sit on them, they adopt the ANIMALS and give them names, like Sarah, Justin, or Mrs. Hippo – these ANIMALS become pals – we just love it, it’s very valuable play resulting in playful learning”.

Every single one of the new Bright Day BIG ANIMAL Block characters has found a child to love them – the FARM and ZOO animals (as described) and the RANCH kit as well – featuring horses, eagles, moose, rattlesnakes, and more.

The BIG kit features 6 BIG kid-sized Blocks. ANIMALS also comes in a MEDIUM size, 40 half-sized Blocks. The ANIMALS are all made with the same commercial quality EVA foam – highly durable for use in schools and play centers – very soft, friendly and 100% certified safe.

Laurel Tucker concludes, “your children will love the ANIMALS – my promise. Let me know the classroom theme you’re planning, or just the characters your children might love the best. If we don’t have exactly what you need we’ll make the perfect character, size, color for you – can do! – we are always here to help.”

Laurel Tucker also encourages all educators to connect with our PLAY-BASED CURRICULUM, featuring tips and tools on child-directed play, theme, and project based learning. Find the curriculum at:
