When I was in Portland earlier this year I saw the cutest set of nautical alphabet blocks in one of the stores. I didn't have room for them in my suitcase so I added them to my wishlist. Fast forward to earlier this month: I got an email from Uncommon Goods about doing a product review of the blocks! Happy birthday to me! Technically the nautical alphabet blocks are in the Uncommon Goods gifts for kids section but I am going to display them in my apartment (can you see my name in there?). And maybe I will share with my nephews sometimes ;)
Uncommon Goods is based in New York in the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal. Their mission is to support and provide a platform for artists and designers. At least half of what is sold is made by hand with most of the products created right here in the USA. About one-third of the collection incorporates recycled and/or upcycled materials. Uncommon Goods has something for everyone including the women in your life, the guys, housewares, and you can find a huge selection of personalized/monogrammed gifts here. There is also pages and pages of fun gifts for kids- both H and Baby Nautical have the construction plate and utensils.
The nautical alphabet blocks are handmade in the USA. They are non-toxic and made with child safe inks. The set contains the 26 letters of the alphabet with their accompanying maritime signal flag, Morse code, semaphore, the NATO phonetic alphabet words plus a classic knot illustration.

Please note: I was sent the nautical alphabet blocks to review. All opinions are my own.
