The 1mm. tile cubes have a raised design indicating fabric pattern...

Not just for children, these blocks are even a challenge for adults! The German's are known for their excellent chromolithographs and these are wonderful depictions of Victorian children and their dogs and animals at play in various scenes.

The wooden box is missing 1 end as shown in photos but all blocks are in tact...
