Children need to understand the important nuances that define fine alphabets long before they learn how to spell cat, dog, mom, dad or 529 college savings plan. To that end, we have developed this compact set of 12 Neutraface Slab alphabet blocks that will transmit subliminal stylistic messages to both young impressionable minds or the odd dolt whose narrow view of typography is defined by a partial screening of the Helvetica movie. 12 - 1.75 inch basswood cubes printed with non-toxic, lead-free, child safe inks. Also included is a basswood tray for storage and display. Uncle Goose blocks and trays are 100% handcrafted in Grand Rapids, MI from fast-growing and sustainable Great Lakes grown basswood.
