Hickory, dickory, block. This 28 block Nursery Rhyme set is attractive, educational and fun, and makes a great baby shower or birthday gift. Each block is embossed with two silhouette images from Mother Goose stories, with the nursery rhyme text on the other four sides.
Embossing: What makes these blocks special are the two embossed letters on each block. The embossing process gives depth and detail to each block and appears to be carved.
Beveled Edges: The upright edges of these blocks eliminate sharp corners and make the blocks more comfortable to hold.
Non-Toxic Inks: These toys are made from child-safe materials, especially non-toxic inks. They are tested regularly and always surpass national and international standards on ink safety.
Basswood: These blocks are made from basswood which is grown around the Great Lakes. Basswood is ideal for making blocks because it’s light-weight, light-colored and odor-free.
Toys inspire children's imagination and help them to develop physically and intellectually. Babies can spend hours playing with (and chewing and sucking on!) their toys. Make sure you choose toys that are safe by investing in wood toys colored with natural dyes or organic plush toys instead of the usual plastic that clutters your home. If you must buy plastic, look for it to be BPA free, PVC free, and phthalate free. For more on the benefits of choosing an organic or wooden toy, see our Healthy Baby Guides.
