Supports
Manna Soup Kitchen

3% of proceeds from sales are donated to the Manna Soup Kitchen to help families in need.

 

A Family Owned Company

The original BlockHeadz

BlockAzoidz were developed in 2018 by Mark Northrop with the help of his wife Jenny and son Nathan, in Durango Colorado.  The idea surely would not have been developed if not for the birth of Nathan.  When Nathan, age 6 now, was born, Mark began thinking of a more interesting building toy for Nathan to play with.  Always designing and creating things (maybe thanks a bit to his engineering degree from CSU), Mark created the blocks in his home workshop.  Over the next year the family realized how educational and stimulating they were, not only for Nathan, but their adult friends as well. With the help of Jenny, who loves marketing and business thanks to her degree from Fort Lewis, and Nathan, the creative genius who came up with the name BlockAzoidz, they worked together to build BlockAzoidz, the company.    

Just to see what might happen, the trio decided to submit their idea to STEM.org.  To their surprise, STEM.org liked their idea and accredited and block-chained BlockAzoidz.

The trio then decided to try and sell BlockAzoidz at the Telluride Farmers Market for the 2020 season.  They were accepted into the beautiful market as an artisan for the summer.  Unfortunately, due to current times, non-food vendors are not allowed this summer.  Therefore, they are now focusing solely on Internet sales through this site.  They look forward to continuing to grow BlockAzoidz for many years to come.


In fact, a top secret, new BlockAzoidz shape is in the works.

We are in the beginning stages of our family business and have applied for a SBA loan.  If you like BlockAzoidz and would like to donate to our company and keep BlockAzoidz producing blocks, please use the button below.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us via email at blockazoidz@gmail.com with questions, comments or suggestions.
