I know what you are thinking. How different can building blocks be anyway? Little M and I learned exactly how different when we came across these incredible blocks from Uncle Goose. They are made of sustainable Michigan basswood and embossed with non-toxic ink. The hand-manufactured blocks come in a wide range of colors, styles and patterns including classic alphabets, count and stack blocks, nursery rhyme blocks and (our favorite) foreign language blocks. The blocks feature each language’s alphabets and corresponding pictures. Available in a multitude of languages, like Arabic, Chinese and Greek, the hardest part will be choosing just one set. I want to buy them all!
