How do I love thee? Love Heart Blocks let tots count twelve different ways. Designed by House Industries, each set of four blocks features a dozen colloquially-correct compositions of the sweet sentiment — so kiddos are introduced to English, Hebrew, French, Swedish, German, Arabic, Greek, Spanish, Bengali, Russian, Japanese, Korean all in a day’s play — what’s not to love about that? In addition to being smart, Love Heart Blocks are also easy on the eyes. Available in hues of red or black, the blocks are embossed with hearts which comprise a greater puzzle (much like the emotion itself). Made in the USA from replenishable Michigan-grown, kiln-dried basswood and printed by hand with non-toxic, lead-free child-safe inks, we think Love Heart Blocks shouldn’t be reserved for child’s play. The set would look très chic on a coffee table, shelf or desk, as a reminder of the universal language of love we all hold so dear.
