Uncle Goose Alphabet Blocks

Early childhood just wouldn’t be complete without a great eco-friendly set of alphabet blocks — and no blocks help tots spell the ABC’s of green like Lindenwood’s Uncle Goose Blocks. These heirloom quality toys are handcrafted in Michigan from local, sustainably grown basswood and non-toxic inks are used for the lettered embossing and beveled edges. Classic and modern at the same time, tots will love learning their letters and building towers with these colorful, tactile blocks.
