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."

    It was a present for a baby shower. My friend is a professor and was having her second child. It seemed both suitable for a baby, but also to hint at a life beyond children!

        My husband and I are both scientists and we thought that these blocks would be fun for us and our baby. We have all learned some new things! I think we will enjoy many more years as a family with these blocks.

          These blocks are all awesome and tons on fun. My son (almost 2) loves stacking them as tall as he can and then knocking them down. My husband and I love reading the blocks.
          The only issue is the "M" block has "m" words on 2 sides, but the other 4 sides are "o" block sides.

          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.

                  I love these blocks! I had so much fun explaining what was on each one, some neighbors didn't know nearly any of the references but I knew most :). Science nerd kids for the win!

                    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.
