Children as young as 12-months can now visually memorize and learn the core elements in Persian by playing with Dr. Bashi™ blocks, while advancing their key motor-skills by stacking and building with our premium non-toxic blocks (made to last generations). Our 32-piece Persian maple wood educational set is lacquered, colorful, engraved!
With the right tools and stimulation, nearly all children are capable of visually memorizing/learning the core elements such as the alphabet, numbers, shapes and basic cognitive concepts before kindergarten/school-start.
With our wood blocks, children can begin to memorize the Persian letters, vowels and numbers, geometric shapes, math symbols, sight-words, seasons, weather types, and the five senses in Persian, all the while advancing their motor-skills by stacking and building with the blocks.
Our blocks also promote parent-child interaction--because playing on the floor with wood blocks is the ideal environment for social interaction between adults and children--stacking, building, observing, and talking about the blocks provides the kind of social interaction that mediates the learning process (Berk & Winsler, 1995).
The blocks that we make are of heirloom quality, which means they are made to last generations. When you purchase one of our sets for a child, you are buying it for their child, grandchild, great grandchild and great-great-grandchild…we guarantee it! Unlike the linden and basswood alphabet blocks commonly found in the market, our blocks are made of native northeastern hard maple wood which creates a solid, non-splintering toy that is safe and soft around the edges. Furthermore while linden and basswood alphabet blocks begin to fade and lose their ink within the first few months of play by a child, our lacquered blocks retain their vibrant color and shine for decades–remember I've made them to be passed down from our children to theirs.The wood working skills that have lovingly gone into creating our blocks belong to a long tradition of quality craftsmanship in the Northeast of the United States.
Dr. Bashi™ is a small, woman-owned social impact educational start-up based on ethical, earth-friendly & gender/race-conscious principles.
Farsi or Persian?
"Farsi" is the same as Persian, an Indo-European language spoken in Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan and their diaspora. Technically one should only name the language "Farsi" when speaking in Persian--Persian is what the language is named in English (like saying "Español" or "Italiano" only when speaking in those languages).
