The toys were designed in Queens, NY in 2015. The initial batch of blocks were made and sold locally in NY. The most recent batches were made in a family owned woodworkers factory in their home province in Santa Cruz, Laguna, Philippines.
These blocks are made from lanete wood, which is a common tree found in Southeast Asia. They use lead-free, water-based, non-toxic acrylic paint on their products. They have been tested and passed all US Consumer Product Safety and ASTM requirements.
