Heirloom Quality Blocks December 30, 2013
"These blocks have the classic style I remember as a child, but with French words. My grandchildren speak French with their parents at home and I was happy to find this perfect gift."

Unusual and much appreciated gift December 09, 2013
"I have purchased these blocks for two different newborns. In both cases, the mothers were French majors/teachers, highly educated themselves and really appreciated the opportunity for their babies to play and learn when they were older."

More than just play blocks! May 16, 2013
"I am a pediatrician and a grandparent. I am always on the lookout for meaningful and unique toys for my grandchildren. What originally was purchased for my grandson (age 2yrs) was given to my daughter-in-law as a Mother's Day gift. She was absolutely delighted! She is Japanese and is teaching our grandchildren her native language. The blocks will be a great aid. The workmanship and quality of these American-made blocks are excellent!"

Building Blocks Heaven. April 16, 2013
"I am a building blocks lover, and a new mum (and a French native). So this was an obvious choice. It is beautifully crafted, good size blocks, colors are pretty - it does make it look vintage. And it is made in the US. Having it with French words is definitely a plus to teach our little fellow French (his dad is American). The only thing that I think the manufacturer should fix is that some words do have a article (like "le serpent") but other images do not include the article. It would be nice to have some consistency there."

Wonderful purchase March 14, 2013
"We bought these blocks in French for our son's 1st birthday. First, the package is simple but very nice. Second, the blocks are beautiful. Our son loves them. He knew that I was counting to 5 within the first 10 minutes of opening them. We're so excited to teach him french while he's so young. He also loves to build towers and knock them down. I would highly recommend this product to anyone!"

Perfect gift! November 30, 2012
"I bought these blocks for my best friend while they were in China for their "gotcha" day with their newly adopted little girl. They loved them and said it would be a great way to help teach their daughter about her roots as well as their two older boys!"
