          I wish my kids were young enough to still play with blocks. These are beautifully made and I love that they include the sign language and braille! They beat out any other blocks on the market!!

            This was a gift for a nephew. I work with the blind so the Braille was particularly meaningful to the family to whom I sent the blocks. I like the fact they are made in America and will last a long time.

            Day care uses sign-language for all the babies and they use it. It's amazing. I think the blocks with the signs will help.

                    These blocks came very fast. I am impressed with the way the quality is on them. My grandchild will enjoy these very much while learning the alphabet through sign lauguage blocks.

                        What a gorgeous way for a child who is hearing or sight-impaired, or who has a family member who is, to start learning the alphabet! Are you "feeling" this beautifully-made set of blocks?

                        Oh, these are fabulous! I wish I'd had them when my son was a baby, but I'd probably still buy them. My son learned sign language at an early age due to hearing issues.
