Hey Diddle Diddle!

Great for play, early reading or as a nursery decoration, this set of 28 blocks tells nine Mother Goose rhymes via pictures and words. Timeless and simple, each block is embossed on opposite ends with two silhouette images from classic Mother Goose stories. The nursery rhyme text is printed consecutively on the four remaining side. These classic blocks have beveled edges for a more comfortable hold. They are handcrafted in Michigan of Basswood grown in the Great Lakes area and printed with non-toxic inks. Set features classic Mother Goose Rhymes, including:

One, two buckle my shoe
Hickory, dickory, dock

    Comments about NURSERY RHYME BLOCKS:

    I love that these blocks go beyond the ABCs! I think this gift will be useful for developing motor skills in young children, and also as the child grows up and begins to read. The nursery rhyme theme is great, and likely to help develop memory skills too. And I love that the blocks are made in the USA!

        Blocks are reserved for potty training time. While on the potty, we learn Nursery Rhymes. Now potty time is also a time to have fun while learning. As each one is read, they are stacked, thus improving motor skills.

          This is really a wonderful set of blocks. The quality is great. What I like is that this a different type of gift--one that you don't see on most baby registries. Also, this set of blocks is different from the "typical" ones that you see around. The new mom loved them!

            I bought these for my two little boys for Christmas and adore them. They are slightly larger than some wooden cube blocks and very nice for stacking. My little one loves to have me read the nursery rhyme for each block and finds his favorites for me. We haven't had them for long enough to really review the durability, but so far I have no complaints. They seem very well made. I don't think you'll find a more unique and special set of blocks for the price.

              Comments about NURSERY RHYME BLOCKS:

              The incorporation of nursery rhymes makes this product more relevant for a rapidly growing child. Not only can a 2 year-old play with the blocks and enjoy building, but as a 4 or 5 year-old, the same child can still get enjoyment out of the blocks since they give the child practice with reading.
