Box Details:

This beautiful hardwood keepsake box was made for us by woodshed (http://woodshed.etsy.com). This cherry box is very finely crafted with brass hinges and chains. It measures 4 1/4" tall, 10 1/2" long and 6" deep (outer dimensions).



Build-Your-Own-StoryBlox Information:

These blocks feature build-your-own-story text with a number of added educational benefits. These blocks 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 quirky 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.


Special Information:

The letters, numbers and symbols are painted on using stencils and a very durable indoor/outdoor, child safe, non-toxic paint. The story text is applied toner ink (so as safe as a photo copy). These blocks are VERY durable and will survive most any abuse that doesn't destroy the wood itself.


Shipping:

I ship with USPS Priority Mail, international shipping is based on USPS international priority flat-rate box.
