Guidecraft Community Buildings


This month’s Guidecraft Educator review and giveaway is for the Community Buildings (set of 6). These buildings are colorfully-painted and made of durable plywood.

six community buildings

Buildings include:

  • Hospital
  • School
  • Police Station
  • Fire Station
  • Store
  • Service Station

Each building has a 3.5″ high opening and is approximately 6.5″W x 5.75″D x 6.5″H. These Community Buildings work really well with toys you may already have, like blocks, small people figures, a train table, cars, and trucks, as well as some of the other Guidecraft sets, like the Roadway System and Block Play Traffic Signs. My kids had so much fun setting up a city with me on our train table!

These buildings would be perfect as part of a community helpers unit in a preschool or kindergarten classroom (or early child homeschool classroom). Children can explore different careers by using their imaginations to create communities. The children went to school in the school bus, the fire truck went in the fire station, the race car got gas at the service station, the people purchased vegetables at the store, the people who were sick went to the hospital in the ambulance, and the police car was parked at the police station. And as my children just discovered as I was writing this post, they make great ‘hiding places’ for all sorts of things, like pine cones!

    The children in my classroom, especially the boys, would be ecstatic. I have been saving up to get them some new stuff for the Blocks Area which has the same playthings since September. I love Guidecraft products, they are very sturdy and great quality.

  14. I am a Public Preschool Teacher and desperately need to update materials within my classroom. This set would be a fabulous addition to my Block Area. I could totally see the hours of use and enjoyment they would provide children already. So many products also look so valuable for a classroom.

  15. Phyllis says:

    What a wonderful addition to my block area! The new 42 piece set roadway system looks like quality fun. We have the animal train sort and match and it is a favorite.

  16. I teach over 500 students a week in art, we build and draw our buildings!! Pre-k-3rd grade! The kids would go wild over theses! Each class builds for th next incoming class!

  17. Tammy says:

    I really like the block play, these buildings and roadways would be a great addition to any block area, especially our recently opened center.

  21. Isabel Z says:

    My preschoolers would LOVE these. We are on such a tight budget that our toys are missing so many parts and outdated that it would be nice to have something as wonderful as this in our block area. THank you for the chance to win.

  22. nancy says:

  27. Irena says:

    The roadway system is my fav Guidecraft product, but if I win this set for my preschool class, it may be the new fav! Thanks for the chance to win.

  28. kindergeek says:

    Love the huge block set

    Every classroom should have a gigantic block space. My kids create amazing, unique things with traditional wooden blocks.

  29. I work with 3 & 4 year olds. They love to be in the block center but it has become stagnated because we really don’t have any buildings. I have bought in boxes and other things to try to spice it up but the blocks are starting to be used like lightsabers or swords, a no no in my room. I think that they would really enjoy the towns. I had them at my previous center.

    Now if I could get anything else for my room, it would be that 4 in 1 easel that flips. Our easel is on its last legs and I am now try to organize it and clean it to make it look nice but I don’t think anything will fix that

  30. Kristine S says:

    That would be an amazing addition to the block center!! The children at school would love something new to enhance their play.

  31. Aprile Young says:

    Thank You for giving us the opportunity to win these. I am a teacher of the 2K Preschool and we are a small chuch in desperate need of some new toys. It would be such a blessing to have these!

  32. Mary borgsmiller says:

    This would be awesome in my preschool classroom. We are working towards getting the roadway system through a fundraiser and this would be a perfect addition to our block area.

  33. maureen shields says:

    I love my Guidecraft Interlox building materials. I teach 22 four year olds, and they love to use these to create all sorts of structures. They have also been a fun and engaging resource for our new light table! I would love the community buildings for our classroom ! The block area is always a busy spot in our room, and I love to change the materials there to add to the conversation, building and imaginative play.

  34. Stacey says:

    So many fascinating toys in this catalog. I keep coming back to the Magneatos. I need to get a set of those for my classroom. I also like the various interlocking blocks and the skyscraper builders. Lots of problem solving opportunities there.

  35. Evelyn says:

    Plywood trucks are fun!

  36. Amber says:

    I love the block mates and the Arabian table top blocks.

  101. Erica. says:

I know the children would love playing with them.

  102. rachelle lee says:

    These would be great for my daughter for her pretend play.

  103. Chris says:

    Next stop the Guidecraft website.

    Puppet theatre, block play, manipulatives and dramatic play items are our favorites from Guidecraft. Durable, brightly colored and easy for little hands to use and imagine with!

  111. angelfire1 says:

    This is an awesome product, they had these same buildings at a center I used to work at. But now in a private school we supply our own products, so I have converted Kleenex boxes to make buildings like this for my block center. The child love using these (well my cheap version) for our community helper lesson, and putting numbers on the buildings where they have to put that many people or cars in the building helps them with number recognition. These little buildings have so many ways they can be incorporated into a classroom curriculum. Good luck for those in this contest 🙂 ….

  112. kay says:


  113. Sarah Sousa says:

    As a first year preschool teacher, my block area is pretty boring. The children in my class would love something new to play with. They use boxes now as buildings but these would be so much more fun with them. Our center has so much Guidecraft accessories it is hard to pick one! I think the Nest and Stack Cups would be a great asset to our classroom of 2 1/2-3 year olds.

  114. Tami walker says:

    Would love these

  115. Laura says:

    I have my eye on the Steve Light Storyboxes, especially Hansel & Gretel and Rapunzel sets. :o)
