Blocks Blocks everywhere

Holy cats! Had no idea that the good old wooden block came in so many varieties. Here's two super cool ones that we love.

XYZ Alternative Alphabet

A is for Afro. J is for Jackalope. M is for Moustache. S is for Sunburn.

Don't make me tell you what U is for.

How much do you love this update on an old-school favorite--the wooden block. Oh, and did you notice the kick ass graphics? Seriously. Kick. Ass.

(By the way, U is for Underpants. And also for Uvula.)

Uncle Goose Foreign Language blocks

A Korean block set! Has 22 animals, the numbers 1-10 in English and Korean, and all the Korean consonants and vowels. Very cool!

FYI--Uncle Goose also makes blocks in other languages such as Japanese, Chinese, French, and German!
