inspired by 'tumi ishi' or japanese zen blocks, and used traditionally to develop a sense of inner balance - because in order to balance on the outside, one needs to be balanced on the inside :)
as an open ended toy, they appeal in different ways to children (and adults) of different ages.
for younger children - the all wooden, and mouth-safe blocks are great for sensorial exploration.for slightly older toddlers, each block being unique serves as an invitation to open ended, imaginative play, while they make for a fun (and challenging!) stacking game for even older kids and adults.
thoughtfully handmade using maple wood and finished with tung oil (a food grade wood finish & preservative).
each bag contains 15 blocks of varying shapes and sizes (the smallest being approximately 1” x 1.5" x 0.5"
