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:

I am a civil engineer, so when I saw these blocks I had to buy them for my 2 year old son. They are very durable with his rough play. And the learning behind them will be used for years to come. The only issue I have with these blocks is the colors are not nearly as vibrant as in the picture. I know computer screens can show different colors, but I was not expecting the coloring to be that much more dull in person. They are still great blocks, but this does cause the words/pictures shown on the blocks to be less legible than shown in the picture. I would still order these again...in fact I just purchased them for a coworkers baby shower.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was prompt and no damage to the box.

            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.

            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.

                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.
