Uncle Goose - Alphabet & Specialty Blocks

About Uncle Goose

Stack and Learn

While Mother Goose was weaving fairy tales and nursery rhymes, Uncle Goose turned his talents to another playroom classic: building blocks. Craftspeople and artisans come from far and wide to make Uncle Goose blocks that have the look and feel of traditional wooden alphabet blocks, but with an educational twist. Along with the ABCs, Uncle Goose block sets are adorned with math symbols, scientific images, historic leaders and foreign languages.

So just who is this Uncle Goose character? Pete Bultman runs the family business, which his father started in Michigan in 1983. Pete continues the
tradition set by his father of using quality materials to recreate nostalgic toys that mix playing and learning in a graphic, tactile way.

Each set of blocks is handcrafted from basswood, and the graphics are rendered in nontoxic, child-safe inks. In addition to the classic ABC blocks, Uncle Goose also offers Elemental, which illustrates the entire periodic table of elements on 20 wood cubes. For math and patterning, the Groovie set displays numbers, math symbols, and geometric shapes on 28 blocks. Presidential tackles all 44 presidents, and Braille combines the ABCs with sign language. Uncle Goose also offers a dozen foreign language options, including Spanish, French, Chinese, Italian, German, Arabic and Greek. Each heirloom-quality set will last for generations—no batteries required.
