Uncle Goose Black Hole Block

Introducing our Most Expensive Block Ever: the Black Hole Block

Have you ever heard of Vantablack? It’s the darkest material ever made by humans. It absorbs over 99% of all visible light. This means it reflects almost nothing back.

Vantablack coating is so dark, it makes objects look like holes in space. That’s because Vantablack hides the details and shadows of whatever it covers.

So we got to daydreaming. Wouldn’t it be cool to paint one of our blocks Vantablack? And we could add it to our lineup of STEM toys. We could call it the “Black Hole Block.”

Because while Vantablack is dark, black holes are even darker. They form when massive stars explode and collapse at the end of their life cycles. Black holes have such a strong gravitation force, they pull anything nearby into them: even light!

But alas! Vantablack coating is not something we’ll buy or paint on our toys. Scientists grow Vantablack in a special lab, using high heat and a patented process.

Plus, Vantablack is way, way, WAY out of our price range. The coating can cost more per ounce than gold!

But it’s fun to think about how dark and expensive Vantablack is. And while we won’t really paint our blocks with it, we can use our imaginations and pretend.

Instead of using Vantablack, we’ll paint one of our basswood cubes with non-toxic and child-safe black paint. And we'll still call it our Black Hole Block.

We’ll also fantasize about charging $5,500 for this limited-edition and exclusive Black Hole Block. It’s a real conversation piece! And it can also help you to create a black hole in your banking account!

But hurry, this fantasy offer won’t last long. We only have this one Black Hole Block in stock. If you really want it, it can be yours for the low, low price of $5,500. That’s right, only $5,500 for a wooden cube with regular non-toxic black paint on it.

Think of your bragging rights! Only $5,500 for a limited-edition Black Hole Block by Uncle Goose! What a bargain!

Remember, black holes don’t live forever. They evaporate over time.

So will this exclusive offer. It’s a one-day only special. After April 1, 2023, you won’t be able to buy our exclusive $5,500 Black Hole Block anymore!

April Fool!
