Of course I could easily go and buy a set of wooden blocks for him but this method is so much quicker, easier and cheaper.
Farfar (Freddy's Father's Father) is always on hand with a saw and he cut up a branch of about 1 foot in length into pieces of about 2 inches long. A bit of sandpaper can be used to remove any sharp edges following cutting.

For older children it might be interesting to make a full set of wooden blocks like this but for a toddler these few blocks are more than adequate.
Sometimes the simplest toys are the best!
