Well, I am a huge font-nerd. I love getting new typefaces more than I like shopping for shoes or clothes. And House Industries has some of my favorites. Not only do they have gorgeous typefaces, but they also sell accessories featuring their lovely fonts. Look at these blocks. Both my boys LOVE blocks, and these have form and function working beautifully together…..I am definitely in to “pretty toys” since most of the time it looks as though a toy store literally exploded in my den. I love the product description: “Your kids can create a ligneous yard sale on your living room rug while you’re in deep conversation with your guests, then build this living landmark to demonstrate how you are properly introducing them to important bits of culture.” They are a bit pricey for blocks, but I really wish we had a set. Maybe I can save for them :).
