It’s hard to impress us with a version of an old toy like blocks, but we fell in love with this clever new wooden block set from Paxton Gate’s Curiosities for Kids. The set comes in a variety of bright colors (we’re pretty sure we can count six versions of green in the photo.) The blocks also come in one hundred pieces of varying heights for serious tower-building and fortress construction. We know toys are supposed to be for the kids and help development and creativity etc, etc, but we mostly just want to put this on our coffee table and keep it like an art piece. It’s that beautiful.
