Uncle Goose makes your toys to order. If you don’t buy our products, we stop making them.
Thankfully, you’ve been buying our blocks from our website over the past few months. So we’ll keep making them for you.
Sarah designed some new toys during the COVID-19 shutdown. Phil will soon be working on custom mixing all the crazy colors she dreamed up for the new products. Fingers crossed: we’ll be revealing the new designs in Fall 2020. Stay tuned!
