Blocks of Time

block party!

In the world of kiddie must-haves, stacking blocks top the list.

It’s a rite of passage to figure out how to build ’em up (and knock ’em down).

Inspire towering greatness with a set of custom Big, Little Girl’s vintage-style stacking blocks.

The American-made, solid maple blocks are distressed, hand painted, and decorated to order with nontoxic paints. Choose from 22 colors and four themes inspired by the turn-of-the-century (the last one), retro ’50s, mod ’60s, or groovy ’70s.

They’re perfectly sized to help little hands build sky-high structures.

And lasting memories.
