Talking Heads

Learn the building blocks of democracy from dignified blockheads.

Patriotic cubes with facial renderings of every U.S. President and an oval office cube stack neatly into a perfect, forty-five piece set forming a grand American flag on one side. Each cube presents a face, name, nickname, lifespan, party affiliation, term and number in red, gray and blue ink.

Beveled edges make the blocks more comfortable and easier to hold.

    I'm saving this for my son's birthday. Although he'll be a bit young for it, I think we'll enjoy these blocks and learn from them for years to come!

        Comments about PRESIDENT BLOCK SET:

        My son plays with these blocks for hours on end. He has learned about all American presidents, their political parties, their nicknames, etc. he loves having his daddy or I mix up the blocks and remove one. Then he goes to work reordering the blocks and determing which block is missing. He's an expert by now, but he still loves the game, one of his own invention. These blocks have given him numerous hours of entertainment, amd we're happy that he's using his time to expand his knowledge of American history.

          Comments about PRESIDENT BLOCK SET:

          My son is a history buff. I was nervous about giving him this as it was not the typical plastic star wars x fighter model. He was very happy with the gift and unlike most of the other stuff he gets, this looks good when left out on the coffee table.

            Love the blocks! Very nice quality and appear to be durable. Only complaint was there were 2 duplicate blocks (& 2 presidents missing). I contacted the company directly (contact info was on packaging) and am awaiting replacement blocks. They sounded willing to remedy the problem. Will provide update when we see customer service response on missing blocks.

                My nephew is all about the presidents these days, and he really likes order, so these blocks are perfect. They're beautifully made and feel great in your hands. A great toy all around!

                    Bought sets for nieces & nephews and even got one for myself. Super cool for anyone who loves history and/or politics. Also, ideal for trying to create that love or provide a fun way to learn about our nation's presidents.

                      I love this gift. I got it for my 3 year old grandson who loves to learn. The great thing is that as he is playing blocks he is learning about this great nation of America.
