Smiling Tree Toys Personalized Keepsake Blocks

Our girl and boy birth blocks and baptism blocks have been so popular we added a few new options to the mix! These keepsake blocks are perfect as a series or can stand alone on their own. Each block is beautifully handcrafted and completely personalized to your specifications.


My Year of Firsts

Commemorate all your baby's firsts with this beautifully designed heirloom to treasure forever. Start with the baby's name + birth details, then choose four milestones to document:

  • rolls over
  • first steps
  • first word
  • first food
  • crawls
  • sits alone
  • sleeps through the night
  • first tooth

You also have the option of engraving a photo in place of one of the milestones, and as always you can add a personal message on the bottom. What better way to celebrate your baby's first year of life!

All About Me

Celebrate all the things that make your child special with our new ALL ABOUT ME keepsake block. Start with your child's name and age, then choose four of the following:

  • favorite book
  • favorite color
  • quote
  • favorite food
  • when I grow up...
  • favorite song
  • current height/weight/shoe size
  • favorite movie

While these blocks are perfect for any occasion, why not start a new tradition documenting your child's personality and how it changes each year? What a fun way to look back watch your child grow!

Photo Blocks

In addition to these all new keepsake blocks, we've also introduced the option to engrave a photo on our current BIRTH BLOCKS as well. It doesn't get more personal than that!
