Uncle Goose Blocks

2022, Wrapped: Uncle Goose Launched 10 New Toys

That’s a wrap! In 2022, your Uncle Goose launched 10 -- count 'em 10! -- new toys. We created 4 new block toys, and 6 new CHIPS toys. We also created 4 new custom gift wrap designs and 3 new gift cards. 

Let's take a look back at our 2022 creations.

1. Perpetual Calendar Blocks

What a great gift for the new year! A perpetual calendar is a terrific way to learn about numbers, dates, and seasons. The Perpetual Calendar Blocks from Uncle Goose are built to last a few lifetimes. A heritage toy, you can hand them down from generation to generation.

4. Growing Child Blocks in a Box

Say "Blocks in a Box" three times fast -- it's fun! In 2022, we re-released this beloved deluxe block from 1985. This special set comes with 32 Classic ABC blocks and 32 Classic Lowercase ABC Blocks in a maple wood storage box with handles. You can get the box engraved with your name or special message on the nameplate. 

And in 2022, we also created something entirely new for us. We make our new CHIPS line of toys from basswood that we recycle from our block making process. Here is our 2022 line of CHIPS toys:

1. CHIPS: Collective Nouns

Instead of cards, your Uncle Goose prints the learning material on 64 wood quarter blocks we call CHIPS. You can use the CHIPS to build structures — while building knowledge about animals and their collective names.

2. CHIPS: Mod
