Mokulock is a brand of wooden blocks founded and produced in Yamagata, Japan. Since trees cannot thrive when growing close together in the mountains without sunlight filtering in, some trees in Yamagata are carefully cut down in winter using snow as a cushion. These are then used to produce Mokulock's pure wooden blocks that are known to have benefits such as being warm to the touch, has a comforting aroma, and a naturally beautiful colour and texture.
Research has confirmed that wood has a comforting effect similar to bathing in the forest, stabilizing the autonomic nerves by lowering blood pressure, regulating an abnormal pulse, and calming the nerves. Wood can help enhance creativity, the ability that everyone has to create something from nothing, by making the wood into blocks.
Mokulock is simply carved out from a solid piece of wood. No surface finishing oil, chemical, paint, or glue is used. Mokulock’s safeness has been proved by qualifications of various safety standard examinations.
