Endlessly engaging for youngsters old
enough to be curious about other peoples
and cultures. Along with the
Cyrillic blocks, the Chinese and
Character blocks, and the Hieroglyphic
blocks (and not to forget the ASL Sign
blocks and Braille blocks), you will be
amazed how much children in middle
school will make an effort to learn
these letters. Also a good guide
to teaching calligraphy. Of
course, if your family is Japanese,
these are also great for little tykes
for the obvious reasons.
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.
