Versatile Functionality

Although these blocks are intended for open play they can be used in many different by the entire family, young and old. The blocks make a great ornament and centre piece in hall ways or on coffee tables especially combined with additional wooden log discs. When enjoyed peacefully they allow practising mindfulness and help to guide you into a meditative state.

Prime Hardwoods

Each balancing block is made from hand selected prime hardwoods. Every set includes at least 4 different species of timbers which gives each set a unique look and feel. Looking at the wood close-up you will be amazed how different every timber grain looks and feels. The intricate pattern for instance of banksia timber in comparison to the plain grain of jarrah is a good example. The timber species used for each set depend on availability and may include: marri, jarrah, sheoak, white oak, walnut, karri, tuart, banksia, cape lilac, maple, mulga, york gum, iron bark &  peppermint tree just to name a view. Some of timbers are even processed straight from the fresh log.

Care Instructions

To assist with cleaning the blocks and up-holding a beautiful finish of the wood surface re-apply food-grade orange oil every 6 month. Don’t use wax as a finish though as it makes the blocks to slippery to stack.

      I bought the blocks as a gift and they were well received. They loved how soft they were to touch and the smell of the wood too. Very happy and will be getting more to grow the set.

      Beautiful colours, smell and great size for little hands. They have held up during several ‘drop tests’ too.

      Strongly recommend as they are so versatile across ages and can be used with so many other toys.

      Wood pieces are a little smaller than expected. Also some wood pieces quite imperfect with ‘honeycombed‘ holes in long sections.

      Love the blocks – they are all made out of different type of woods that Christian is kindly helping me in identifying different wood names and answer my question of how to take care of them. I really like them over the coloured blocks as these blocks will never have the colour-chip off problem. Love to learn the real wood names and see their raw look. Timeless toys with infinity of ways to play with them ! I am now regretting of not getting the Jacaranda Wooden Log Discs that Christian was recommending !

      I absolutely love these blocks. The wood pieces that have been selected are stunning, especially the sheoak which has a beautiful gradient like a real gem. Christian helped us learn the names of the different wood species that he used (great for all those Montessori kids out there.) I think I will till have these in the house long after the kids are finished with them.

      I can not believe these blocks! I ordered a mix set of 40 blocks, and I can not stop raving about how fantastic they are ❤️
      They are a lot of fun for little ones, all the way up to older people.
      Mine are adored by all our children, and even my gran who is turning 103.
      Each block has a lot of soul too it, from their colours, grains, different edges, and their amazing smell. They have a solid feel and are easy to be used by anyone.
      We have 6 children from 15 to 1, and can honestly say this is a toy that is loved and used by all.

      We LOVE these blocks! There are so many opportunities for open ended play. We bought 60 blocks and having so many is fantastic for being able to build walls, houses, different height stacks and so much more. They’re great for adults too – stacking them is super meditative!
      The different woods are all beautiful and are finely sanded enough to not worry about splinters but coarse enough to be able to grip to each other.
