Just wanted to leave a quick note regarding the fonts used. I was a bit worried because a previous reviewer said that the blocks used Latin fonts to mimic Russian letters. Now that I have these blocks in my hands, I would say I disagree. The letters are normal Russian letters - although it's not the smoothest font, I think that that's because of the limitations of carving straight angles into the wood. In the end, the letters are clear and easy to read and correct Russian letters which is what I've wanted for my little one.

The overall quality is also very good. I am generally not big on wooden blocks - they always look so bland next to the brighter plastic toys - but for what it is, they are very well made. The size is medium... a bit big for my two-year old's hands but will be ideal for 3-year olds and older. I also think they look a bit better than the photo... the picture makes the letters look fuzzy but they are actually quite sharp.

Unfortunately, this set of ABC blocks does not include two Russian letters (У and Ы) at all. Therefore, it is not possible to compose several words. It is not even possible to compose word 'ГУСЬ' which is Russian for 'GOOSE'.

Also there a lot of the same letters (for example, there are eight letters 'Ч') etc.

Shame on you, Uncle Goose! Terrible inattentiveness!

UPDATED: I've contacted Uncle Goose and they sent me two blocks for free - one with У letter and one with Ы. I expected to receive at least two blocks with each letter, but still better than nothing. Changed from one star to three stars.

We received these cubes a couple of years ago as a gift and I was surprised to find them here on Amazon when I needed a gift for Russian little cousins this Christmas season. The quality of these cubes is superb - 2 years later they are still as good as new. The wood does not chip and the paint did not come off. We are extremely pleased and will recommend them to all of our friends.

I knocked one star off just because they are not really all that colorful. Brighter colors attract toddlers so much more. But they are as advertised. Nicely crafted durable blocks. My 17mo likes them.

2 letters are missing "У" and "Ы" Cannot put them all in order to many repetitive letters.
Very useless purchase. However very good quality. I will send them back.

I was not expecting something this fine. The quality is well above what you would expect for something costing $16. I am amazed that the manufacturer can make money on this, especially if it is made in the USA. The engraving, polishing, and paint make the blocks a pleasure to see and touch. They are like something from an earlier age. And they will probably last a lifetime. BTW, the box they come in is not bad either. (It's cardboard, but sturdy and with a tasteful art scheme.)

In short... "Kupite, ne pojaleite."

I just bought 2 of these sets - one for my daughter and one as a gift. Generally speaking, the blocks are awesome, really great quality, well made, super light weight, which is great for the little ones, with bright colors, letters, numbers and pictures. Overall, I would give this product 10 stars, but there ARE missing letters. From the reviews it sounds like it's always different letters for different people - in my case I'm missing the M and ave very few A blocks (that is if you lay them out with the uncarved side up). As mentioned here multiple times, the Russian alphabet has 33 letters, so with only 32 blocks you'll always be missing a letter when trying to learn the full alphabet. I'm dismayed that this almost perfect product is marred by such an oversight.

UPDATE! I contacted Uncle Goose, the manufacturer of the blocks and spoke to Mandy who was an absolute pleasure. She was understanding and really helpful, offering to send me the missing block so all 33 could be laid out in a row. Uncle Goose is a family owned business out of Great Rapids and now that I've spoken to Mandy, I feel like their customer service matches their amazing products. 10 thumbs up for this great company!

Don't buy this product!

The good: The blocks are well made and look the same as the photo.

The bad: While they do say there are 32 blocks included, I just assumed that there were 32 letters in the Russian alphabet (I mean, why would I check that before I bought them?). Well I was wrong, there are 33.... I gave these to my 3 year old nephew for Christmas and he seemed pretty happy, started playing with them right away. He starts lining them up and after a few minutes I hear him repeatedly saying "where is" (Sorry I don't speak Russian and forget which one). I did an online search so I could "help him" find the missing block and I found out he was right! Why the heck would you make such a nice looking set of blocks and leave one out?

Also the color / style / pattern was off. When you line them up there were like 30 blocks that were of solid colors: Blue, Yellow, Green and Orange but 2 of them were a totally different look? I suppose this might be OK for some kids but if they are slightly Autistic or special needs you might as well throw them in the garbage.
