If you think bugs are ugly, take a closer look. One side of each block reveals a detailed close up of the insect featured on its opposite side. Colorful Art Nouveau upper and lowercase letters grace the remaining four sides. Explore patterns and etymology in a block set where nature meets design. This set is a companion to our Flower, Bird, and Ocean block sets.
Note the sophisticated, decorative color palette. The lettering beneath each insect matches the typeface. The styling and typeface pleases a designer's eye, so that Uncle Goose Bug Blocks appeal to both adults and children; as well as sophisticates and ruffians.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
William & Pete Bultman
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Uncle Goose was founded by William Bultman in 1983 after he learned no one in the USA seemed to be making wood blocks for children anymore. Today the company is run by his son Pete, who has expanded his father’s vision from ABC blocks to include nursery rhymes, dinosaurs, mathematics, and much more.
