I first landed on Gnaana while I was searching for alphabet blocks in my native language, kannada. I was so glad i stumbled upon Gnaana.com(Gnaana means “knowledge” in Sanskrit ). This gem of a store has lots of products I had been looking for! Their products are all very well designed, unique and the best of all is that most are available in many major languages of India.
Their products range from alphabet blocks in 5 regional Indian languages (Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu), to puzzles, musical CDs, a recipe collection and child-sized aprons available for personalization in Indic fonts and many more. These are designed to inspire children to take interest in learning about India, one of the world's ancient civilizations. Check out their vast array of educational products for your kids!I love their alphabet blocks in kannada, as well as “Das Avatar” puzzle which introduces kids to Vishnu and his 10 “Avatars”.
