The Building Blocks of Science

A is for absolute zero...B is for binary...Give your little genius the building blocks of scientific knowledge--from Atom to Zeolite--with Tiffany Ard's geeky set of blocks. These classic, colorful cubes feature all 26 letters of the alphabet on one face, amazing, illustrated terms from the universe of science on the other five, and two bonus blocks showing decimals and powers of 10. Handcrafted in Michigan from local basswood; printed with nontoxic inks.

By junior high, Tiffany Ard was a self-identified nerd. "I was too afraid of being hit by a ball to do sports, too shy to be a theater kid, too unpopular to be one of the popular kids," says the illustrator and science enthusiast. "The kids I spent time with liked writing stories and inventing languages and pretending to be time travelers." When she had a child of her own, Tiffany realized there were plenty of toys designed to make tots smart and successful—but dorky for the sheer fun of it? Not so much. Her Nerdy Baby line fills the (cosmic) void. "The best gifts invite open-ended play and make kids feel empowered to experiment fearlessly," she notes. "If they happen to learn some fun science facts, all the better."

    Comments about UncommonGoods Super Nerdy ABC Blocks:

    The moment I saw these, I knew they'd make the perfect gift for the new baby of a dear friends of ours (an engineer and a scientist.) I knew they'd appreciate all the scientific terms for each letter. The construction is beautiful and made in the US which is a huge plus.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Super Nerdy ABC Blocks:

    These blocks are intriguing to little eyes and hands! I gave this for a child's first birthday. Even her parents are surprised at how much their baby daughter loves holding and playing with them! I'm happy to have found something that will not only bring her joy and fun for years to come, but may stimulate early affections for building and reading.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Super Nerdy ABC Blocks:

        I bought these for my sister's baby (due in two weeks). I picked them because my nerdy sister and her nerdy husband will love them, and probably the baby will like biting them when he gets big enough. I really appreciate that the letter X--usually so neglected in alphabet charts--gets really clever words on these blocks.

          Best Uses

            Comments about UncommonGoods Super Nerdy ABC Blocks:

            Bought a 2nd set. Layouting (not alphabetical) in just 2-D in some cases had two preferences for the blocks. So to show both needed a 2nd set. Thus my two sets don't contain full alphabet. Optimized the combo, and then optimized the leftovers separately. OK, that was idiosyncratic, yes. But the blocks are great and they have both obvious topics and as well, very advanced ones. I liked both very much. For example, although "azimuth" is not deeply profound or advanced, its graphic was great.

              We bought these blocks for my son. He is 20 months old and loves them. He finds the colors and lettering interesting. They are light enough for him to easily manipulate and large enough for him to build and stack easily. Love them!

              Perfect for little fingers and growing minds!

              Comments about UncommonGoods Super Nerdy ABC Blocks:

              I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my son. It's a great gift for promoting his current developmental stage and I'm hoping the exposure to the scientific terms at an early age will keep him eager to learn as he grows through different developmental stages with this block set. The block set arrived timely and was in perfect condition for little fingers!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Prompt delivery. Good condition.

                I am a chemical engineer and bought these blocks as a present for my nephew. They will be a great learning tool as he continues to grow. My only complaint would be about the answer key. A durable copy should come with the blocks for the parents who are a little less science savvy. I will have to print & laminate it myself and drop it in the mail to my nephew post holidays.
