“The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things.”—Plato
Our exquisite sets of blocks are as close to perfection as we can imagine: they're handcrafted in the U.S.A. from sustainable basswood, are brightly colored with child-safe inks, and measure 1¾" (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 and are used from the earliest years through middle school.
