While spending one summer on Vancouver Island, Canada, Alisa had a few trees milled up and began to shape her first Rock Blocks. Re-locating back to Utah in the United States, she started shaping and naturally dyeing blocks to try to keep up with the unanticipated hype Rock Blocks were receiving. Two years later, Rock Blocks are being shipped out all over the world.
The blocks are made from natural woods, the most common being fir, pine, and red cedar. Being handcrafted, each wooden block is unique. The colours come from milk paint, which is more eco-friendly, and most importantly a child-safe, non-toxic alternative to regular acrylic paints you find on wooden products.
Why we love Rock Block Shop
We love how no two blocks can be the same as they are all handcrafted, which makes building and stacking them a fun challenge for kids and adults alike. The blocks are also really great for open-ended and imaginative play. They also make them in a fun range of colours with non-toxic paints making them safe for the young ones.
