Periodic Table Building Blocks


That's different.

From websites:


The set includes 20 brightly colored basswood blocks that contain the entire periodic table.

The six sides feature a unique element's name, atomic number and symbol in bright blue, purple, green, red, orange or pink.

Handmade in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Blocks measure 1.75"/side.

Ages 2 and up.


"Ages 2 and up" is great news โ€” over 90% of my readers qualify.


Mandarin (below): $42.


Spanish: $38.

I guess that I had that one coming.

Nice idea, but who to gift it to? Nephew is an engineering student. At 19 I doubt that he plays with blocks.

Grandchildren are too old to play with blocks and too young for (today's gutted version) chemistry sets.

I suppose today's politicians might mix old and new to form AuH2O... Jewlers could have C, Pt, Au, Ag and a touch of Pb.

Joe would go for N2O.
