Frequently Asked Questions
HOW ARE YOUR BLOCKS DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHER CARDBOARD BLOCKS OUT THERE?
Bricklettes™ is a conscious lifestyle brand that remains mindful of not only parents and children, but the world around us. Our blocks are completely safe for your little ones (and for the environment!). Each cardboard brick is printed with water-based, food-safe inks - meaning no hazardous air pollutants, and minimal VOCs. Plus, our cardboard blocks can go straight into your recycling bin at the end of their life cycle, where they will break down more quickly than most (if not all) other toys on the market. And, as an added bonus - for each restock of Bricklettes™, one tree is planted.
ARE YOUR BLOCKS DURABLE AND STURDY?
Our blocks are extremely sturdy -- they can hold up to 150 lbs. and withstand a LOT of wear and tear from active little ones -- whether it be throwing and kicking, using them as a "chair" or "bed", or just your every-day tower tumbling. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the durability of the blocks within the first month of use, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can make it right.
WHY ARE BUILDING BLOCKS IMPORTANT TOYS FOR LITTLE ONES?
The generous size of our blocks makes them perfect for open-ended and pretend play. But building blocks aren't just fun -- they have been associated with learning and education for centuries and are crucial pillars of both Montessori and STEM toy categories. A few benefits associated with block play:
• Promotes focus and concentration
• Builds motor skills for little ones
• Fosters planning, creativity, & spatial perception
• Encourages teamwork and problem solving
• Teaches principles of math & geometry for older kids
HOW WILL MY BLOCKS ARRIVE?
Prettier play, straight to your door! We pack every box of Bricklettes™ with care in one of our play parcel mailers -- each set includes either 10 or 20 unassembled blocks with transparent, detailed instructions aimed to make the assembly process easier for parents. Because we are a small, parent-run business currently fulfilling all of our orders after bedtime or at naptime while also juggling full-time jobs with 3 kids under the age of 3 running around, delivery time takes longer than your average Amazon order ... but we promise that it's worth the wait!
We aim to keep our order processing time under 15 business days, and in most cases are able to ship out within a few days. We will be sure to keep you updated on any delays beyond that timeframe, and you can always email us at email@example.com if you need your order to arrive in a shorter timeframe and we will try our best to get it out to you ASAP!
