The Cosmogony of Uncle Goose Uncle Goose sometimes feels like that eccentric yet eloquent friend of yours that seems to have stepped out of an O. Henry short story from the late 19th century. After all, theirs is a company that stepped back over one hundred years in time to hand-manufacture classic wood alphabet blocks in an era of computer games and digital toys.
We can’t even imagine living in a world without alphabet blocks. If Uncle Goose didn’t bother to craft them, this iconic toy might very well become extinct.
We simply couldn’t stand to live in that world. Blocks inspire. In particular, Uncle Goose blocks are fascinating to those who long to feel inspired by sensual participation in the physical realm.
We’re really in love with learning, design, and creativity. And we love blocks. They are simple, creative, old-fashioned, and maybe a little quirky; but that’s the essence of Uncle Goose Toys.
