Handmade Wooden Nursery Rhyme Blocks

OK, I am completely in love with this set of handcrafted wooden nursery rhyme blocks! Each block has two sides with embossed and painted (non-toxic inks!) images, and four sides of text. The set of 28 blocks tells these nine Mother Goose rhymes:

  • Three Little Kittens
  • Jack Be Nimble
  • Hickory Dickory Dock
  • Humpty Dumpty
  • Jack & Jill
  • Pat-a-cake Pat-a-cake
  • Mary Had a Little Lamb
  • Hey Diddle Diddle
  • Little Miss Muffet
I admit that nobody would want to put all 28 blocks in a Christmas stocking, but there's certainly no reason you can't put at least a few of the blocks in the stocking, then have the rest under the tree -- perhaps paired with a book of nursery rhymes? And because they're made of wood, these are the kind of quality toy that could be passed down from generation to generation.

What: Handmade Wooden Nursery Rhyme Blocks
