MMM: Gorgeous stacking blocks

Having just had two birthdays (the kids are two years apart – by just one week!), one thing is clear: there are a LOT of gorgeous things out there and my pair were really lucky in the present department.

Plastic, shrieking noises and whizzy things are great (maybe…), but I absolutely love wooden toys (especially SILENT wooden toys).

One of my favourites for the baby were stacking blocks, which are visually stimulating, teach coordination skills AND you can get some really, really pretty ones. They are also a great idea for a new baby present.

I spotted this fantastic idea on Ollibird – a downloadable set of prints you can cut and paste onto plain blocks. I would love to play with this, never mind the kids.

And you can never go wrong with Janod. This cardboard set looks beautiful and wouldn’t http://www.propecia-finasteride-buy.com hurt any little fingers if (when) it falls down.

For parents with a more minimal style aesthetic, these Topsy Turvy stacking blocks from MoMa in NYC are stunning. Bold, bright designs that would make a statement in any child’s room, they are available from Amazon.

Similarly, these felt covered blocks will challenge kids of all ages – and they look great.

For a more vintage look, I love these alphabet stacking blocks from Little Baby Company.

And finally, for the grown ups only (these aren’t designed for children), you can’t beat the Sketch Inc neon geometric stackers.

It’s a stress-buster AND nailing two Spring trends in one – winner.
