Knock on wood!

I am very sorry about the radio silence, but I am working very hard to finish my book, Simply American, Putting Our Extended American Family Back To Work.  But, I am still hunting for great American firms featuring products made by members of our extended American family and I found a great one the other day.  The firm is Uncle Goose of Grand Rapids, MI.  They make a myriad of amazing heirloom wooden blocks, puzzles and other toys.  Uncle Goose’s products are so beautifully made.  My two favorites are the ant blocks

and the Presidential blocks

Uncle Goose even makes braille blocks!

Please check out all of Uncle Goose’s products; they are really amazing and all made here on our shores.

Now get shopping!
