$36.95

Su Bebe Es Muy Inteligente!

Bringing up a bilingual baby will be as easy as uno, dos, tres with these beautifully made alphabet blocks in Spanish, Mandarin, and Italian. Each block is embossed to give it a classic look inspired by traditional blocks. They are handcrafted in Michigan of Basswood grown in the Great Lakes area and printed with non-toxic inks. The blocks feature beveled edges for a more comfortable hold.

Spanish: The Spanish language set includes 28 blocks. Features 4 complete alphabets, 3 sets of numerals, and 28 different animal pictures.

Mandarin: This beginner Mandarin set has 32 character blocks. Each block has the character alone and with its English equivalent, a stroke grid to learn how to create the character, and a number and a picture with its pin yin equivalent. There is also a puzzle side for this set... a map of China, the Chinese flag and a yellow dragon (responsible for bringing the seeds of writing to the Chinese people).

I got the Spanish blocks for my 8 month old, and while he doesn't do much but chew on them right now - he's definitely interested in playing with the blocks, looking at the animal pictures and knocking down towers I build. I think these are going to be great as he gets older, too. Plus, I learned a few new words! The blocks are kind of more lightweight than I might have expected from wooden toys - but it ends up being a good thing since he's bashing them all over the place anyway.

I bought the Spanish version. These blocks are well made and of good quality. However, I'm very disappointed with the Spanish aspect. Each block has one Spanish word with a picture, but out of the 26 letters, only 13 are represented. There are seven words that start with 'C' and multiples of others as well. So if you are interested in teaching your child a word for each letter, a typical alphabet game, you will not be to.

      This gift is unique, one that will last longer than Christmas Day. It is one that develops small motor skills, creativity, and language skills. It is colorful, great for small hands, and practical: yes, all three!

        Beautiful colors. Until he's old enough to read them himself, they'll make a great decoration and fun toy to build with.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Foreign Language Blocks:

              Got this gift for my husband to use with our son. He wants our son to learn Mandarin as he is disappointed he doesn't speak it himself (being Chinese, many people ask if he does and it frustrates him). This was a perfect gift for that situation and so unique. The blocks are great quality, and I love that they are US made with non-toxic paints. Good chance I will get them again in the future as gifts for friends and relatives with children. As someone who usually struggles to find good gifts, I am super excited about this.
