Constellation Wooden Blocks
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Founded in 1983
Owner Pete Bultman’s father founded Uncle Goose when he wasn’t able to find quality wooden blocks like the ones he had played with as a child. Today, Pete has expanded on his father’s vision of honoring this timeless learning tool through 100% USA-made products, utilizing sustainable local materials and inspired design. The handcrafted blocks are sourced from Michigan basswood and use only non-toxic, child-safe inks. Uncle Goose’s handiwork has appeared on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”, AMC’s “Mad Men”, and in homes, museums, boutiques and design shops throughout the world.
