The name says it all, as this set from Larsen Toy Lab comes with 24 beautifully handmade wooden blocks. The Maple pieces are unfinished while the Cherry have a light beeswax finish to bring out the natural wood grain. A perfect introductory block set that will provide a creative outlet for your little ones and last for generations.


Free name engraving is included with the set, creating a uniquely personal gift. Please include in the notes section upon checkout if you'd like the set to be personally engraved, and with what name.


  • Award winning, each wood block is handcrafted and individually beveled
  • American Made
  • Includes ~ 24 blocks, plus cotton canvas carrying bag
  • For ages 1+


The two most obvious differences between Larsen blocks and others are attention to detail and personalization.  Instead of tumbling the blocks together in a large bin (creating nicks and dents on the surface), these blocks are individually sanded using a custom jig and machine called SandFlee. The same set-up is used to bevel the edges and corners to make sure nothing is too sharp for the little ones.

    When Courtney and Alex Larsen were little, their dad made a beautiful set of building blocks from spare wood in his shop and it quickly became a treasured toy. Now, as passionate toy makers inspired by their dad’s ingenuity and relentless standards of quality, they have set out to rediscover the power of building blocks. They started by asking the most important question: How do we make them fun for all ages and different from the hundreds of other toy companies that make blocks?

    First, they complement each of their block sets with custom engravings, original stories, games, or puzzles to create a completely new experience. Next, they put the same amount of love and care into making each block as their dad did for their first set. Then, they only partner with people that care as much as they do for the health of the planet and safety of your children. Plain and simple, their mission is to provide you with unforgettable toys that will stimulate growing brains and last for generations.
