Wooden Blocks for Land of Nod

Elizabeth Olwen

It has been a shamefully long time since I’ve posted here — for my faithful followers, I offer you my apologies. Life has been busy, adventures have been had, summer days were enjoyed and of course, new products have launched, despite the radio silence. I just wanted to share few new and fun products that have launched over the past while! 

First up: one of my most cherished clients, Land of Nod, and I collaborated on a whole bunch of new products, which I will share in the coming days. But I wanted to call out one extra special launch with them. When they came to me and asked me if I wanted to work on a set of baby blocks, I jumped at the chance. It was one of the most challenging and fulfilling projects I’ve worked on to date — each block has 6 sides, meaning 6 illustrations were required for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. As in, a lot of illustration work — and I enjoyed every second. The final product is one that I am very proud of, that I will cherish forever, and I truly hope find a special place in homes and young hearts. 

Here are some pictures of the final blocks, now available through Land of Nod! 

Each block has a letter, number, a few illustrations based around nature, and some modern geometric patterns.
