The other half of this set is done. Plus a few planks- every block set can use a few extra planks. 🙂
I didn’t think it was worth it to check for dimensions to make sure the second half fit in with the first half, since they all live in a big giant bag, anyway, so, my version isn’t a carbon copy of my inspiration set, and I swapped colors around a little, but, it’s pretty close.
And I don’t want to diminish the value of the $199 block set- it is gorgeous and there is a ton of work that goes into wooden toys that aren’t made in a Chinese factory- but, my set? Probably $1.50 in paint, $1 in the beeswax finish, and $3 in wood (if that).
However, if I paid myself a fair wage for the time spent working on it- it would probably be cheaper just to buy the Grimm’s set. 😉
