Japanese Character Blocks
You don’t have to speak the language to appreciate the elegance and beauty of the Japanese characters on these blocks. This 32 block set includes a puzzle with the map of Japan, and all of the Hiragana you need to spell your favorite sushi item. Each block features the Katakana equivalent, numbers, and animals with their English translation.
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! 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. Blocks help children learn language, arithmetic, fine motor skills, and spatial relationships.
Ages Infant and up.
