Buying Guide

The generally accepted standard for schools, preschools, and kindergartens is the standard unit block of 1-3/8 by 2-3/4 by 5-1/2 inches.

Blocks that are fractions or multiples of the standard unit block give a child many possibilities for creative play

You can create your own set of blocks or select extra blocks to add to our Starter Kit.

The Froebel Gallery provides a comprehensive service to assist families and kindergartens to create sets of unit blocks to meet your needs and your budget. Please email your requirements to

Our unit blocks are made in the United States from FAS quality, knot free Michigan and Indiana maple hardwood. All blocks are rounded on the long edges and sanded and softened on the ends and corners. Tolerances are within .01 inches.

Our unit blocks are made from forests using sustainable practices.You can buy them with the assurance that new growth is far in excess of lumber takings, and that workers will be able to sustain themselves and their families from your purchase.

‘Going green’ often constitutes getting back to basics and surrounding one’s family with non-toxic goodness as well as visually engaging design. Eco-friendly toys are a significant household investment, particularly when the product is as timeless as these blocks with quality craftsmanship through and through. It is great to know that interactive design like this still comes in the form of beautiful objects, for both budding green minds and a lifetime of play.
