Constellation Blocks from ThinkGeek

Company: ThinkGeek
Available: Now
Price: $24.99 USD

Constellation Blocks from ThinkGeek give a celestial twist to the classic building-block concept. Each set includes 16 handmade basswood cubes that measure 1 ¾-inches each, and depict popular constellations often referenced in nursery rhymes.

Each block features two versions of a single constellation – with and without connecting lines – debossed into the wood. The other four sides display the constellation’s symbol, name, hemisphere, and scale of magnitude. This makes Constellation Blocks great for building and for learning.

The blocks are printed using non-toxic, child-safe inks, making them suitable for children ages two and up. A complete set checks in at $24.99 USD and is available directly from the company’s online store.
