Blocks are a basic staple in any well stocked toy box. Let's face it — what kid doesn't enjoy playing with blocks?

Whether they are building high towers to knock down and rebuild, admiring the height of their latest sky scraper, matching shapes, pictures, or colors, or enclosing cars and toys in homemade garages, kids become totally engrossed in their world of imagination. Kids love to use blocks and they are not even aware that they are in a learning zone. Alphabet Blocks aid in the development of fine motor skills, spatial recognition, math, and language skills. Uncle Goose Alphabet Blocks feature all uppercase letters. There are two embossed letters, numbers, and/or images on each block, under each numeral and animal its name is printed.

Blocks also feature numerals 0 to 9 and math symbols (+ - X, etc.). Their design is classic, they resemble the alphabet blocks of yore. A standard set includes 27 blocks, and is available with canvas bag, wooden crate, or wood wagon. Another very nice feature is the beveled edges, the upright edges of the blocks are cut to eliminate sharp corners and make the blocks more comfortable for little hands to hold on to. Uncle Goose's Alphabet Blocks are handcrafted of child-safe materials, made from basswood and non-toxic inks. They are also very lightweight.

Especially cool about these blocks is that they come in different languages, like Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish, including Braille and Sign-Language. Uncle Goose will be taking on a new name and a new look, but they are promising that the heart of the company will remain the same, and will continue to produce the same quality toys under their new name - Lindenwood, Inc.
