Show of Hands

Before they can talk, kids use their adorable, miniature hands to communicate. Hands up: "Pick me up, please!" Rubbing eyes: "Is it nap time yet?" Help them learn to count their way with this set of sweet handmade blocks. Each side has the traditional number and an illustration of a hand holding up that number of fingers. As they play, they can mimic the blocks with their own hands. Gradually, they'll be able to connect the hand signals with words, and voila! They'll be solving algebra equations in no time. Or maybe just counting to ten. Crafted from walnut and maple; sealed with jojoba and beeswax. Handmade by Adrienne and David Minnery in Seattle, Washington.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“We hope our toys foster a love of learning, curiosity and imaginative play for your little ones.”

Adrienne and David Minnery believe that the best toys are simple, durable, and spark imagination. They started their design business because they wanted to make toys for their kids—and yours—that are natural and safe. Adrienne and David both have degrees in fine art, and have been creating since they could hold a pencil. “It's our comfort zone and a natural way for us to express ourselves,” says David. Adrienne has also been teaching art for more than 16 years. When she's not in school, she's devoted to developing new, creative pieces with David. With their two little ones by their side, the inspiring couple lives and works in Seattle, Washington.
