Chinese Building Blocks

Recommended Posts


I recently bought these off an online second hand app, something called Shpock, I was intrigued by the pictures and they were very affordable, so i bought them. Once I had received them I did some research and found that they are made by a company called Uncle Goose. Their website was an eye opener, they do these blocks for all sorts of things, the Periodic Table, The Planets, many languages including Greek, Hebrew, Korean and more.


I am guessing they are designed for children but they are very nicely made, well carved and painted, they are solid wood and quite weighty but not too heavy.


I thought they were fun and practical. I remember these as ABC blocks when I was a child but never realised how they had expanded into this many varieties.

Interesting! I can see them being fun for a pre-school age Chinese child.


My landlord left some things like that behind in my Kunming apartment that are relics from the time her granddaughter was very young and spent time here with her before starting kindergarten 幼儿园。 (The little girl is now in high school 高中。)

I thought this was another post about the Great Firewall.

Ha, I did wonder how many interpretations there could be, hadn't thought about that one.
