Hand Painted Alphabet Blocks
with Classic Nursery Rhymes
Get a full set of NurseryBlox™ in an open-topped wooden box.
A set includes 36 blocks, each block is a 1½" cube. The front face of each block holds a capital letter or a number (A-Z, 0-9), and the back face is the matching lower case letter (a-z) or a punctuation mark (! $ & ? / : - % . +). The remaining four sides each hold one line of a popular nursery rhyme (see list of rhymes below). All together, the set includes the text of 24 nursery rhymes.
Alphabet blocks are one of the best toys ever made, in my opinion. Most of the time, however, young children are left to play with them by themselves, and older children quickly lose interest in them. NurseryBlox(tm) are more engaging, as parents, caretakers and older siblings are much more inclined to play with small children, helping them to pick out the nursery rhymes and reading with them.
Pre-school aged children will be able to play with these blocks just like regular alphabet blocks, but older children will also be interested in finding the right blocks, putting them in order, and reading the nursery rhymes. These blocks are also great for households with children of varying ages, as older children often enjoy showing off and reading to their younger siblings.
This set of blocks will come in an dovetailed, open-topped wood box similar to the ones in the first photo. Our new boxes, made by fellow etsy seller krtwood, are much sturdier than the boxes we've used in the past. (The tray shown in a couple of the photos is no longer available.)

The letters, numbers and symbols are painted on using stencils and a very durable indoor/outdoor, paint, the text on the sides is applied using a toner transfer process that sinks the toner into the wood. These blocks are VERY durable and will survive most any abuse that doesn't destroy the wood itself.
All of our products for children, including these blocks, meet the new CPSIA safety standards for lead/phthalates, etc. Any components not already exempted by the CPSC have been 3rd party tested. Please contact us if you'd like to see the certificate of compliance.
