Unit Blocks

Legacy quality, hardwood, Maple blocks made in the United States.

These unit blocks are sanded maple, completely unfinished, too large to pose a choking hazard and satisfy the CPSC rules for children under the age of three.

All shapes are a fraction or multiple of the standard unit block of 1-3/8 by 2-3/4 by 5-1/2 inches, the generally accepted standard for schools, preschools, and kindergartens. Maple is a smooth, tight grained hardwood varying in color from almost white to a reddish brown. These unit blocks are made from FAS quality, knot free Michigan and Indiana hardwoods. Blocks are rounded on the long edges and sanded and softened on the ends and corners. Tolerances are within .01 inches.

Each set of unit blocks includes the shapes of the third and fourth Froebel Gifts.
