Kokeshi Blocks (multiple sets shown)

Traditional Kokeshi dolls are a celebrated form of Japanese folk art that originated in northern Japan. They are typically handmade from wood. The wood is carved into a elementary shape featuring a large head and simple trunk. These beautiful art pieces are often painted in red and black and feature a floral design. They offer a kind of uncomplicated beauty. 

The Kokeshi Blocks from the NeatoShop honor the exquisite craftsmanship of the traditional Japanese Kokeshi folk art. These House Industries designed blocks are handcrafted from sustainable Michigan basswood. Each set is printed by hand. 

The Kokeshi blocks set includes four wood blocks. The blocks can be combined and recombined to create a visually versatile puzzle. This is proof that toys don't need to be guady and made out of plastic to be entertaining.
