TwisterBlox(tm)
Hand Painted Alphabet Blocks
with Classic Tongue Twisters


Description:

You will be purchasing one set of TwisterBlox™ in an open-topped wooden box (box may vary from photo).

A set includes 36 blocks, each block is a 1.5" wood cube. The front face of each block holds a capital letter or a number (A-Z, 0-9), and the back face is the matching lower case letter (a-z) or a punctuation mark (! $ & ? / : - % . +). The remaining four sides each hold one line of a popular tongue twister (see list of twisters below). All together, the set includes the text of 44 tongue twisters.


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. TwisterBlox(tm) are much more engaging, as parents, caretakers, teachers and older siblings are much more inclined to play with small children, helping them to pick out the tongue twisters and reading with them. TwisterBlox(tm) are especially useful for speech therapy.

For the moms out there, I have done my best to leave out any tongue twisters that encourage swearing.

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 finding the right blocks, putting them in order, and trying to read the tongue twisters. 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.


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 (similar to the tray shown in other pictures), or a plastic bin (like the one in the last picture) instead of the box.

(Items with a * indicate a one-line tongue twister, the rest are multi-line, so you have to search the blocks to line up the entire tongue twister.)


Special Information:

The letters, numbers and symbols are painted on using stencils and a very durable indoor/outdoor, child safe, non-toxic paint. The tongue twister 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.
