If  you want to teach your tot about modern design but don’t think they’re quite ready to hit the textbooks just yet, check out these rad alphabet blocks [1] by House Industries [2]. Drawing inspiration from Charles and Ray Eames [3]‘ mid-century home, they showcase letters, numerals, and symbols from House Industries’ Eames Century Modern [4] font collection. They’re made from renewable Michigan-grown basswood, and when you stack all of the blocks together they form a mini version of the famous design duo’s house.
