If you’re into aesthetics and clean design, chances are you’re not going to be the type to stockpile those colourful plastic blocks beloved by mainstream toy manufacturers. Not that plastic blocks aren’t fun, but the colours can certainly seem garish when featured in nurseries with a muted palate.
Fortunately, we now have the option of buying design driven blocks such as this lovely set from House Industries. For US$35, you get a set of 12 wooden alphabet blocks in a slab that is meant to ‘transmit subliminal stylistic messages to young impressionable minds.’ Simply put; you’re never too young to have good taste.
Made from sustainable kiln-dried basswood, the set is printed with non-toxic, lead-free, child-safe inks.
