Colored wooden building blocks
Inspired by all the current trends towards alternative educational methods like Montessori, Waldorf, etc., i tried to join the world of simple things that open children’s eyes like no other toy can.
12 Wooden blocks – two of each color – are enough to create a rainbow.
They are enough to match colors. They are enough to build a tower. By the way: how many wooden blocks can you stack before the tower collapses? What could possibly keep a child busy, if not a simple wooden blocks set that inspires building, matching, endlessly creating various games?
The set is easy to build. All you need is a hardwood board (I used beech wood, it has a very fine, nice to the touch, texture) that you cut in blocks with a 4 cm side. They must be sanded and the edges must be beveled. Then you stain them and use acrylic varnish for the final finish. There you go, the set is ready!
