Description:

Get a full set of Build-Your-Own-StoryBlox™ in an open-topped wooden box.

These blocks feature build-your-own-story text as well as a number of added educational benefits. They are great for home-schooling, pre-schools and nurseries, elementary classroom education, or plain old fun at home. They will entertain children of all ages, as well as adults that are children at heart, and can provide hours of fun, educational play.


Educational Benefits:


Letter/Number Recognition:

-> The 26 letters blocks have both upper and lower-case letters.
-> The remaining 10 blocks have numbers and symbols.
Each block contains words matching that block's letter or number.
-> Matching characters are underlined wherever they appear.

Colors:

-> Block letters alternate in red, blue, yellow and green.
-> Text on side 1 is red with blue underlines.
-> Text on side 2 is blue with red underlines.
-> Text on side 3 is green with purple underlines.
-> Text on side 4 is purple with green underlines.

Grammar:

-> Side 1 contains at least one noun.
-> Side 2 contains at least one verb.
-> Side 3 contains a prepositional phrase.
-> Side 4 contains at least one conjunction.

Reading:

-> When read in order, the sides of each block form a quirkly little mini story.
-> Blocks can be arranged side by side in different orders to create a nearly endless number of stories.


Details:

A set includes 36 blocks (1.5" cube). The top of each block is a stenciled capital letter or a number (A-Z, 0-9), and the bottom is the matching lower case letter (a-z) or a punctuation mark (! $ & ? / : - % . +). The remaining four sides each contain random phrases and sentence fragments that, when put together with other blocks in the set, allow children to create a nearly endless combination of unique and quirky stories.


Packaging:

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.

We have previously sold these sets in trays and plastic bins, but the new toys laws are forcing us to start over on packaging. We may have trays available in a few months, but do not expect to have the plastic bins again.


Concept:

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. StoryBlox(tm) are much more engaging, as parents, caretakers and older siblings are much more inclined to play with small children, helping them to make up custom stories 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 reading the silly stories on each block, and arranging the blocks side by side to make up their own stories. 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.


Special Information:

The letters, numbers and symbols are painted on using 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.

If you're interested in purchasing multiple sets, or would like to know when new sets become available, please email me. Orders of more than two sets may take a while to process, I will email with details, or you can email me prior to ordering.


Shipping:

We ship via USPS Priority Mail. While we try to keep these in stock, please allow up to a week for production. If you are in a hurry please contact us to make sure we have this set in stock.

International shipping is based on USPS International Priority flat-rate box, becuase of the weight this is the most economical shipping method.


Disclaimer:

If you are paying with check, money order, or paypal e-check, your item may be held until your payment clears.

Due to the handmade nature of this product, your blocks will vary slightly from the images.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We accept payment through PayPal, *Postal* money order, or personal check. If you pay with a personal check, PayPal e-check, or money order we will hold your item until your payment clears.

If you are mailing your payment, we ask that you get it to us within 7 days of your order, if we do not receive it by then we may move to cancel the order, or your order may be delayed.

Returns & exchanges

Due to the handmade nature of these items, we do not generally accept returns (except in cases of incorrect shipments or quality issues), but we will consider issues on a case-by-case basis.

Our items are very rarely damaged in shipping, but it does happen on occasion. If you have not requested shipping insurance, we are not liable for damages during shipping. However, we have been known to make exceptions, so please feel free to contact us.

If an item is returned to us by the Post office, after an attempt has been made to deliver it to the address you provided, we will not refund the cost of shipping and handling. If this happens we will invoice you shipping and handling charges to resend the item. If you choose not to pay and your order was for a custom item, we will make no refunds. If your order was for stock items, we will refund the cost of the order, less the original shipping and handling charges.

Shipping policies

We've done our best to present you with the most cost effective shipping option.
If you are purchasing multiple items or having something shipped internationally, you may benefit by contacting us first to get an actual shipping estimate.

In most cases our shipping prices reflect shipping by the most cost-effective method. This means First Class Mail for domestic shipments of items weighing under 13 oz, and Priority Mail for anything over that weight. Flat-rate can be cheaper in some cases, we estimate that way when possible. For international shipments, most estimates are for First Class Package rates, items over 4 lbs will be shipped via Priority Mail.

If you need expedited shipping (Express Mail, etc) we can generally offer it, but you will need to send a message to inquire about costs. Please let us know the country and zip code and the item(s) you're wanting shipped.
