Block Like an Egyptian

Your child can now build a monument to the ages, even if they knock it down five minutes later. These Egyptian hieroglyphics building blocks will stand the test of time because they're a great developmental toy: younger children will love stacking the brightly colored wooden pieces, while older children can explore the ancient writings, and can even spell out secret messages. Some sides are embossed with letter of the ancient Egyptian alphabet, while others combine those letters into words or ideas. The accompanying booklet offers a thorough introduction to the details of the language. Made in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Standard ABCs blocks are certainly nice, but this set takes symbols a step further (by looking to the past). Would your child love to build a pyramid of Egyptian Hieroglyphic Blocks?

You don!t list prices. Price point would be a determinate for me.

whatever happened to blocks that felt good to hold in your hand?

While these are very cool, I feel I could make them myself for a cheaper price than what it would be to buy and ship them.

I'm not sure who would want this. I feel like once one is old enough to appreciate what Egyptian hieroglyphics are, they are too old to want to play with blocks.

Clever idea-I think older children would be interested in these.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I like that they're wooden and that they have more play (using the hieroglyphics for messages) than just stacking. This is a toy a child could play with for years!

Vote: Thumbs up!

As an early childhood educator, I love using blocks and other construction items as a center. What a great addition to studies on Ancient History! I would love to promote this item on my homeschool blog -- my homeschooling followers would love it!

A one of a kind gift!

Clever, but I can only imagine a very few people who would want these. Namely Egyptologists.

Vote: Thumbs up!

I'd consider using these as a decorating element in almost any room.
