Chinese Character Blocks
This 32-block set features Mandarin Chinese characters, their English equivalents, a stroke grid to learn how to create each character, numbers, pictures of the pin yin equivalent, and a puzzle featuring a map of China, the Chinese flag, and the mythical yellow dragon who brought the seeds of writing to the Chinese people.
Blocks help children learn language, arithmetic, fine motor skills, and spatial relationships. The Michigan company that makes these blocks is run by the founder’s son. Because the blocks often become family heirlooms, replacements are provided at a nominal charge. They’re made from sustainable basswood, are brightly colored with child-safe inks, are handcrafted, and measure 1-3/4" (44mm)—a perfect size for small hands!
Ages Infant and up.
