Handcrafted in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Uncle Goose makes heirloom quality wooden blocks using sustainable materials from around the Great Lakes. With a playful approach to making educational and fun toys, they’re extremely passionate about being socially and environmentally considerate, which is why they only use fast-growing basswood and non-toxic, child-safe inks. Why such fastidious attention to detail? Uncle Goose has a dream that one hundred years from now, a child will be playing and learning with the same set of heirloom blocks they made today. Their products need to do more than look photogenic: they need to embody what it means to be beautiful, purposeful and sustainable.
Uncle Goose’s Planet Blocks have two debossed sides that feature a planet’s symbol, name, and number of moons. The four printed sides reveal a planet illustration, diameter, location, and distance from the sun. This 9 block set honors all 8 planets in our solar system; plus a bonus dwarf planet, Pluto. Blocks are a great way to encourage problem solving, imaginative thinking and enhance fine motor skills.
