At last . . a set of Chinese character blocks.  There is no alphabet in Mandarin, but there are some basic words that begin to help a child develop a vocabulary.  Those with Chinese children will find this helpful along with children's songs like Ni Wa Wa and Little Swallow.  It is a far cry from learning Mandarin, but it gets the idea across for Chinese American children and helps greatly in explaining ideographs.  It's a good idea, however, to find a Chinese friend to pronounce these for your child in Mandarin in order to avoid bad pronunciation habits.

These are manufactured for us by Uncle Goose Blocks in Grand Rapids from the highest quality Linden and are a full 1-3/4 inches.  Alphabet Blocks are not made of Maple which is too hard to emboss (the raised letters on alphabet blocks are produced by embossing). The blocks are thoroughly tested after manufacture for safety and the absence of harmful chemicals by an American Laboratory certified by CPSC.  They conform to both American and European standards for safe toys.
