When teaching your child how to read, write, sort, and just have fun, nothing beats simplicity. This set of 28 blocks is crafted from sustainable Michigan basswood, then embossed and printed with a colorful range of non-toxic inks. Each block tells a story, and since there are several sides to any story, you’ll find a variety of animals, numbers, math symbols, and four full alphabets. The ABC Flyer is a classic way to store blocks, and is much more than a toy organizer, it’s a toy in and of itself. In addition to holding a full set of our standard 28 ABC blocks, it can also serve as a wagon for your children to pull their other toys around in.
Uncle Goose blocks are handcrafted in Grand Rapids, Michigan out of local basswood sustainably grown around the Great Lakes, Uncle Goose blocks are not only a great educational toy but they are a delight to handle. Basswood is ideal for making blocks because of its light-weight, light-colored and odor-free properties. Non-toxic inks are used on the letter embossing, beveled edges, and classic styling of each block.
The blocks are tested regularly and always surpass standards on ink safety. They purchase the inks from an American manufacturer that doesn’t use any heavy metals. Says Uncle Goose, "To keep them honest, we test every gallon of ink before we put it on our blocks. We’re fanatic about quality and safety." There are no sealants or coatings used on the blocks. Blocks are CPSIA certified.
