Uncle Goose educational building blocks are a wonderful mix of a classic, traditional toy with contemporary design. These tactile blocks are lovingly handcrafted from sustainable basswood in Michigan and are built to last for generations.
This is the Fossils set of 16 blocks (1.75in cubes) in earth tones with slate blue colour accents. Each block has two debossed sides with fossil illustrations, and four printed sides with fossil place, time period, era and rock layer.
What's the difference between a time period and an era? Where in the world is each fossil found? What layer of rock? Use these blocks to foster a greater understanding of the natural world.
Suitable for age 2+.
Uncle Goose have been handcrafting their traditional wooden building block in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA, since 1983. The blocks are made from fast-growing, FSC-certified basswood trees that thrive in the Great Lakes region, with child-safe, non-toxic inks. An environmentally responsible business, Uncle Goose's wood waste becomes garden mulch and the shavings become horse bedding, and they use recycled paper packaging.
