Constellation Blocks - By Uncle Goose
Uncle Goose has arrived at After Alice Ltd!
Simply a perfect quirky gift for friends with a young child . . . and exquisite taste.
And they look too good to languish at the bottom of the toy box (we would definitely arrange them artfully on the coffee table). We see this as a gift to entertain the toddler in the room, whilst also helping mum or dad get to grips with the wonders they can see in the sky at night (especially if someone isn't that keen on sleep).
Plus, is it ever too early to start exposing your offspring to incredible things? We think not. Help them explore and recognise 16 constellations from the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
Two debossed sides present the constellation with and without connecting lines. Four printed sides feature the constellation symbol, name, hemisphere, and scale of magnitude.
See if you can spot the largest star in the constellation by sight and touch. You can see and feel all the different sized stars. And some of the constellation symbols you see on the blocks? They're entirely made up. Others are grounded in history. Can you tell which are which?
Set contains 16 wooden blocks measuring 1.75". Made using sustainable Midwestern basswood. Printed with non-toxic, mouth safe inks.
Suitable for children aged 2 years + (though it may take them a little longer before they master the whole sky at night)
Single block dimensions: 1.75" cube
Pack dimensions: 18 x 18 x 4.5cm approx.
