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, bloon toys zen blocks appeal in different ways to children (and adults) of different ages.
for younger children - the all wooden, and mouth-safe blocks in a range of wood types are great for sensorial exploration.for slightly older toddlers, each block being unique allows for various interpretations in open ended, imaginative play... while they make for a fun (and challenging!) stacking game for even older kids and adults.
thoughtfully handmade using a mix of woods - and finished with tung oil (a food grade wood finish & preservative).
each bag contains 15 blocks each a unique shape, and in a variety of wood types. blocks are all bigger than a 1.25" cube.
