I think it’s cute as long as they are non toxic and the paint won’t come off with slobber/chewing/handling etc… I’d agree with what she means, she’s probably thinking wood toys, books, etc and not all the plastic with the bells and whistles.

As far as gifts for both shower, you don’t have to take one to both. But typically I would take my main gift to whichever shower mattered most (i.e. if i went to a family shower for my sister in law I’d take my big gift to that) and then maybe just an outfit or something small to the second. That is also what my family members hvae done at my showers when I have had multiple and they are invited to them.

Just make sure the blocks don’t have sharp corners. Try soft plushy blocks or bath toy blocks. And I agree, just bring an outfit to the second shower.

Agreed to get non-toxic paint and one that will not come off when they get chewed on. Because they will most definitely be chewed on. 

Other things to put on the blocks are numbers, maybe colours, animal pics, smiley faces. Usually those blocks just have letters on ea side tho. 

I would say you shouldn’t be obligated to bring another gift to the second shower. Unless you got a cpl things for the one, split the gifts up between both showers.

Only 1 gift is fine, the blocks are a great idea.  If you use wood you can easily sand the corners so they are rounded.

I think wooden blocks sounds great! Here’s some good information about making wooden toys that are kiddo safe:

Some paints and stains aren’t good for kids, this site should tell you which ones are okay to use.

Wood blocks are great. You’ve got some good suggestions on paint, etc so far.

My DD has wood blocks and at 2 and a half, she still plays with them!
