For anyone who is a fan of gem blocks, you will know that there is no way for acrylic gems to adhere to wood without an adhesive. Each brand meets these challenges differently. Nurture Play Australia uses wood glue as the adhesive. This kind of glue ensures that gems remain intact (some types of glue can damage the backing of the gems). Because of the nature of the kind of glue, it is possible for the gems to fall out. If they do, you just glue them back with wood glue.
Care Instructions: Clean your wooden toys using a gentle cleanser. You can use a simple vinegar and water solution (1 part vinegar to 10 parts water), a mild, environmentally friendly dish soap, and some warm water, or your favorite non-toxic, multi-purpose cleaner, diluted with water.
