We’re big fans of ‘green’ toys that encourage a child’s imagination to take flight. Such is the case with Totem, a creative building cards game made from recycled, laminated micro-wave cardboard. Your child may use the 120 building cards included in each set to construct anything they fancy… from a boat to a plane to a cathedral. Or, they may follow the included manual’s instructions on how to bring several designs to life. Variations of models are endless, as each card is reversible and boasts a unique, artistic picture, symbol, sign or letter. Totem is a clever departure from typical toys, and the perfect mental quencher for kids who love to build, and are ready to think outside the ‘blocks.’
