Designed by Brad Singley, these blocks were inspired by his father, a civil engineer who built toys for his children.
“I can still remember the frustration of playing with building blocks as a young child,” Brad says. “I wanted to build BIG, but it was impossible to make a skyscraper out of triangles, semicircles, cylinders, and small cubes.”
Brad’s prayers were answered when his father made him a set of wooden square and rectangular cubes in four different lengths. Many years later and with children of his own, Brad recreated his favorite toy, updating it to include numbers and increments to encourage both mathematical and creative thinking.
Made in Michigan from scraps of basswood leftover from other products, these blocks feature laser-etched numbers and increments and are sanded to a satiny smooth finish. Each set of 42 blocks comes with six of the 8-blocks, twelve of the 4-blocks, eight of the 2-blocks, and sixteen of the 1-blocks.
