Stonees, in a word, rock. The colorful building blocks, which are made in Canada from crushed North American rocks and all-natural pigments, come in organically shaped triangles, cubes, and cylinders that are perfect for stacking. Like nature’s Legos, Stonees are designed to encourage creativity and motor-skill development in kids ages 3 and up, creating the foundation for impregnable fortresses, formidable fighter jets, windswept ruins, and just about anything your child’s imagination can muster. We’re not the only ones who think that Stonees rule—Creative Child honored the blocks with its Top Toy of the Year Award in 2008.
