Uncle Goose Wooden Blocks
Blocks play such a huge role in childhood development. The simple toy is highlighted in milestone lists again and again. First, babies enjoy chewing the blocks and feeling them in their hands. Next, they knock the blocks together and revel in the sound of wood on wood. Finally, they start building. Their structures begin with just a couple of blocks stacked on top of each other, and gradually develop into art sculptures and homes for toys. Kids have been playing with wooden blocks pretty much forever. We’re excited to tell you that the ubiquitous block has gotten an upgrade.
At first glance, many of the block sets by Uncle Goose will look like traditional sets. Look again, however, and you will see that they are so much more. The blocks themselves are of incredible quality. And the theme of each set is something you won’t get from other companies. Uncle Goose sells sets of blocks in several alphabets, including Hebrew, Arabic, Korean, and American Sign Language. There are sets of US Presidents, chemical elements, constellations, and so much more.
We were excited about getting Monkey some Uncle Goose blocks on the educational merits alone, but there is even more to feel good about with those company’s products. All of their blocks are made with the fast-growing basswood, making them very sustainable, and the inks are safe for children. It’s easy to feel confident buying such a great product, knowing that it’s lovingly crafted 100% in the United States. We currently live in Michigan, which is where Uncle Goose is, so their blocks are delightfully easy to come by around here. Michiganders are very proud of this product! When we lived in North Carolina, the only place to find Uncle Goose was on the internet, but I suspect you will soon find their products in stores all over the country, as we are far from the first blog to recommend them. Take a look at these pictures, and I’m sure you’ll be looking for an excuse to buy their beautiful products, too.
In our household, Uncle Goose blocks and toys are five-egg items. The only reason we haven’t bought more, is because Dog likes to chew on them, too. But if you’re into fine, wooden toys like we are, you simply MUST check out Uncle Goose.
