Earth Blocks


I did a double take when I saw these blocks. I thought they were spray painted Legos, done up as a styling prop in a catalog, but they are actual building blocks made from tree bark and tea leaves. I love the look of them, but I wonder if they’re as appealing to kids.

A set of 50 sells for $45 at Jayson Home. Would your kids be into them, or do you think it’s more for nostalgic adults?
