We like architecture and engineering. And ours is a family of builders always making something together—whether its a sailboat, a toy model or renovating a house. We got a kick out of watching our kids start building with blocks. Their interest grew from simple stacking and categorizing to later spending hours constructing a moat-surrounded castle and telling us about their secret village. We watched exciting problem solving, interaction, cognitive growth and story telling with our kids in block play. But most blocks we found in stores lacked something. Either they were too light, too big, lacked interesting shapes, were made with toxic varnishes or just too expensive. This got us thinking. What if we could create an affordable, multi-sensory, sustainably-made and durable unit block set? So we did! Five years of research, development and testing with educators, we’ve created Unit Bricks.
