Great for play, early reading or as a nursery decoration, this set of 28 blocks tells nine Mother Goose rhymes via pictures and words. Timeless and simple, each block is embossed on opposite ends with two silhouette images from classic Mother Goose stories. The nursery rhyme text is printed consecutively on the four remaining side. These classic blocks have beveled edges for a more comfortable hold. They are handcrafted in Michigan of Basswood grown in the Great Lakes area and printed with non-toxic inks. Set features classic Mother Goose Rhymes, including:

One, two buckle my shoe
Hickory, dickory, dock
Little bo peep
Pat-a-cake pat-a-cake

      I bought these blocks for my year old granddaughter and her mother raved about them. My daughter's first reaction was that this gift was worthy of passing down through the family. They are beautifully made!

            This was for my niece's first baby shower. She had registered at 2 stores, but I was really looking for something unique and this fit the bill!

            Yesterday I received a thank you card from her and she is thrilled with her gift. She is looking forward to using these with her new baby. She tells me that "wooden toys" are all the rage and now they are in the forefront.

                  The Nursery Rhyme Blocks are beautiful. They are colorful and high quality. I love that they are made in the USA.

                  Includes a giving record so they can be passed from generation to generation.

                  These blocks have a variety of uses and can be used with all ages.

                  These blocks are a perfect baby shower present and I plan on ordering several more sets.
