These new balancing blocks from Fort Standard may not look like they belong in Daddy’s old hand-me-down set, but they are destined to become classics for the young and the young-at-heart. The handmade blocks are crafted from repurposed hardwood, culled from furniture shops around the company’s Brooklyn-based design studio. Each set comes in either zen white or hip multicolored hues and contains 10 different sized blocks, all sealed with a non-toxic finish. We don’t know about you, but we have visions of creating Stonehenge and the leaning tower of Pisa dancing in our heads…And yes, we’ll let the little ones join in too.
