My partner in the Fairy Tale Swap just had a baby and I wanted to give the little one a gift. I decided to do these story blocks for her. It has Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood, Red Rose, and Hansel and Gretel blocks.

 Cheesy The woodsman reminds me of Portland. Maybe I should make a story of Portland story block set.

Thanks everyone!

The images are called Olli blocks and they make sets of pictures with a bunch of different themes.

I am thinking of getting some sets for holidays. The only thing that was a pain was cutting them. They don't have lines to cut so you are kind of winging it.

They are wonderful! My two-year old saw then on the table shortly after they arrived her eyes just lit up! Of course, she was trying to stack them 5 and 6 blocks high. But eh, they'll make sense to her soon enough. Wink

Very cute. I love the fairy tale character idea.

I've seen blocks like this before but never knew where they got the pictures. Thanks for sharing the link. I'm definitely going to be making a few of these now.
