General Information:

You will be purchasing one set of Build-Your-Own-StoryBlox(tm) in an open-topped wooden box.


These blocks feature build-your-own-story text as well as 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 quirkly 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 stencilled 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.


Packaging:

By default, each set of blocks comes in a small open-topped wood box (box may vary from photo). Upon request, all StoryBlox sets are now also available on a tray (like the one in photo 1), or a pastic bin (with lid) instead of the box.


Concept:

Alphabet blocks are one of the best toys ever made, in my opinion. Most of the time, however, young children are left to play with them by themselves, and older children quickly lose interest in them. StoryBlox(tm) are much more engaging, as parents, caretakers and older siblings are much more inclined to play with small children, helping them to make up custom stories and reading with them.

Pre-school aged children will be able to play with these blocks just like regular alphabet blocks, but older children will also be interested in reading the silly stories on each block, and arranging the blocks side by side to make up their own stories. These blocks are also great for households with children of varying ages, as older children often enjoy showing off and reading to their younger siblings.


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 no more dangerous than a photo copy). These blocks are VERY durable and will survive most any abuse that doesn't destroy the wood itself.

These blocks are part StoryBlox(tm) line of children's blocks. Please check my other listings for NurseryBlox(tm) (nursery rhymes), SongBlox(tm) (traditional children's songs), TwisterBlox(tm) (tongue twisters), PraiseBlox(tm) (Chirstian children's songs), and Personalized Name blocks.

If you're interested in purchasing multiple sets, or would like to know when new sets become available, please email me. Orders of more than two sets may take a few days to process, I will email with details, or you can email me prior to ordering.


Shipping:

I ship with USPS Priority Mail, please allow up to a week for production.

International shipping is based on USPS international priority flat-rate box -- if you are ordering a set in the plastic bin international shipping may cost more (contact me before ordering for an estimate) -- the wooden box and tray can both be sent in a flat-rate box.
