YoBlocks are eco-friendly photo blocks. They can be completely personalized, which means that customers may select the colors of the blocks, and all of the images to be placed on them. The images may come from our online photo collections or the customer’s own personal archive. They can also be purchased in pre-designed sets, in which the block colors and photos are already selected. YoBlocks come in sets of 1, 3, 6, and 10, and are available in the following colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink.
You may purchase them from the YoBlocks Etsy store.
Whether personalized or pre-designed, YoBlocks are handmade by local artists in Brooklyn, New York. We are committed to making a toy that is good both for humans and for the planet; therefore, YoBlocks are produced using the most environmentally-friendly products that we could find.
These blocks are then painted with organic, biodegradable milk paints from the Old-Fashioned Milk Paint Company. These paints are FREE of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), latex, lead, mercury, and many other harmful ingredients. Made in Massachusetts, these seem to be some of the best paints around! The paints arrive in powdered form, which means we hand mix small batches of paint as we need it. For this reason, small differences in shades of paint may occur from batch to batch—proof of YoBlocks unique, handmade quality.
We attach photos to painted blocks with a biodegradable glue, and coat the blocks with an environmentally-friendly water-based sealant produced in California.
YoBlocks have been approved for children ages 2+ through extensive third-party laboratory tests. Enjoy!
