These are quite possibly the best alphabet blocks available. Given the price, I was a bit hesitant initially, but upon receiving the blocks, all concern was allayed. These blocks are hefty. The quality is superb. The detail work is unmatched in any other toy I've seen. Nontoxic ink, Made in the USA, exceeds EU and US safety standards. You can't go wrong. Support Uncle Goose, in my mind they are the gold standard for toys.

I was so pleased to find these blocks for our little boy. I am a former French teacher, so we are raising him biligually, and it is really tough to find quality French toys in the U.S. The blocks have animals with the words printed on one side, a number on another side (again, with the word), and letters of the alphabet on the other sides, including all of the accent-marked vowels. These are a valuable educational toy for anyone wishing to add a little French to their child's world. If you don't know how to speak French, find pronunciation help at [...] or a similar website. The blocks set has 32 included, so there are 32 different animals. Our little boy (15 months) loves to look at the pictures and hear what they are called. I would recommend supervising young children with this toy, as it is supposed to be for ages 3 and up. I noticed some slight splintering on a couple of the blocks, which we easily fixed, but that could be a problem if a little one were to pop it in the mouth.

I received this set as a gift for my 1 year old son, it is great! I am very pleasantly surprised at the quality of this item. Awesome for the price. Comparable toys are much more expensive than this set. It looks and feels like a classic.
The sides of the cubes make this a good educational tool: animals with their names in French, upper case letters, lower case letters, numbers, also mathematical operators (+, -, = ) and letters with accents specific to the French language (ç, é, è, oe, â, ô)
All in all very pretty to look at, great quality educational toy with a nostalgic feel to it.
I can see us using it and keeping it for a long time.
As a side note, I would also like to applaud this company for making their toys in the US and for understanding that it is important to produce ABC's in languages other than English.

The kid loves these things. He plays with them all the time despite not being able to read or spell, or even really speak. Great teaching tool.

I made the mistake of buying these for my 6 month old baby. THese aren't meant for a baby that young. The corners are pretty sharp, and she would try and chew on the blocks. A few of them she actually chewed off splinters of wood! Owner fault here, I don't blame the makers of the blocks at all, but wanted to point this out for any other parents looking for baby blocks!!! They are slightly larger than the Melissa and Doug blocks, which make it harder for small babies to pick up. By now, at 10 months my daughter can easily pick them up and stack them on top of one another. However, she still puts them in her mouth and sucks on the corners. I have to watch her so that she doesn't chew on them at all!

I do love these blocks. They are beautiful. when my package arrived from amazon, one of the blocks was cracked in half. I contacted Father Goose directly and they shipped me a replacement block free of charge and it arrived within days. They didn't even ask me to return the cracked block! Fantastic customer service!!! I couldn't be happier with this product.

One thing to watch out for, is if you leave the blocks out on the floor, you WILL step on them, and they hurt when you do. The corners are pretty sharp. But that's okay, it just gives you incentive to pick them up ;)

This makes a wonderful and classic baby shower gift. I bought these for a friend (in French!) after buying myself a normal set for my son. The craftsmanship is spectacular. Very intricate carvings and detailed drawings. I love the fact that they're made of wood. We are started to try to move away from plastics, as much as possible. My son is still a toddler but I can see this being a great learning tool once we start getting into letters and numbers. I took off one star because, as another reviewer stated, the corners are incredibly sharp. I'm sure they become less so with time, but until then, it's definitely a small safety concern. I would love to see the corners ever so slightly rounded. Otherwise, great product.

I was looking for something a little different than just another outfit for my soon-to-be grandchild. I know that things like blocks are a fantastic toy for kids--the kids do the "work", not the toy. I wanted something of good quality and this fit the bill entirely! The blocks are colourful, interesting, solid, and generous in proportion.

I also appreciate that this is a North American product and creates jobs here. I am a little cautious about some products from PRC, especially if they may end up in the mouths of children.

In a nutshell? Very happy with my purchase!
