Expand your knowledge of France with 28 French language blocks. Enjoy the embossed fleur-de-lis filigree. This stylized detail surrounds two capital letters on opposing sides of each block. Two other sides show one number and one animal paired with their French translations. Two more hand crafted letters make four complete alphabets.
Cherchez the color palette inspired by the softer tones of the Delacroix “Liberty Leading the People” painting. The fleur-de-lis filigree you see is unique to the Uncle Goose French block set.
These blocks have a simple origin story -- with a surprising twist. In 1983, William Bultman felt shocked and dismayed when he learned no one in the USA seemed to be making wood blocks for children anymore. He began hand-manufacturing classic wood alphabet blocks in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He called his company "Uncle Goose". Today, Bultman's son Pete runs the company his father started.
