::: block play revisited again and again …
Thanks to the wonderful help and support of our followers we recently reconnected with Steven and Vanessa from “Block Play” formerly known as “Mahkupu”.
We had a lovely surprise this week when we received an excited phone call from Vanessa and Steven as they have been overwhelmed by the reponse they have been receiving from parents and teachers who have seen their product on our website.
They happened to be in the area visiting a local kindergarten extolling the virtues of their blocks, and wanted to have a chat about it, so popped by with a delicious cake for afternoon tea – sorry, no photo as it was scoffed really quickly! We had a great chat and they were thrilled to hear how our children continue to gain so much pleasure from playing, constructing and engineering with their fabulous blocks.
Besides the obvious (see above), we love that they are made from certified plantation grown hardwood and made in community workshops in Java, supporting the local population. Go Vanessa and Steven!
They are in the process of putting together their own website, but if you would like to get in touch with them meantime, their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Each time we’ve posted about these magnificent blocks many followers from around the world, particularly the United States have shown interest in purchasing the blocks and having them shipped overseas. We have had a big chat to Steven and Vanessa about this and they have agreed that if they could find a responsible person to become an ‘Agent’ for their product they would seriously consider looking into the logistics of shipping their product to the U.S.
SO if you would be interested in chatting to Steven and Vanessa about this please send them an email or get in touch with us through out “Contact Us” page!
