wooden stacking rocks
A new take on the classic wooden building block!
These are Tumi ishi wooden balancing stones. The concept for these wooden stones originated in Japan; the name Tumi ishi is Japanese for piled stones. There is some debate where the idea of stacking stones as a past time came from, but one thing is for sure, its lots of fun.
Unlike standard square blocks, these blocks have many sides making them more challenging to stack. In turn, we have decided that these will absolutely make you and your children smarter......or maybe we're just biased. All joking aside, they do promote creative, out of the box thinking and problem solving. Our blocks will last generations as a true heritage toy, and open-ended game in your home. We recommend Tumi Ishi blocks for ages 2 to 100 years old.
Each block is made by hand so no two blocks are alike; they approximately measure from 2" to 4". Made from the highest quality sustainably sourced wood; such as, black walnut, hard maple, cherry, cedar, and oak. Each block is carefully sanded and finished with a blend of jojoba oil and beeswax. This finish is 100% organic and 100% non-toxic. There is no stain or paint on any of the blocks; they are all the natural wood color of the individual wood species.
If you are looking for something relaxing, challenging and interesting to do, these wooden stones are just the ticket. These blocks also make a great unique gift for that hard to shop for person.
These also make beautiful and classy decorative pieces. Put them in a glass dish, stack them on your dining room table, coffee table, or desk and watch people ooh and ahh (and try not to play with them).
Choose from a set of 7 or 11 Tumi Ishi wood blocks -- they come in an organic linen drawstring bag.
