Beauty and the Block

These handmade blocks from Toronto's Petit Flaneur combine alphabet & numbers with a 3D Puzzle and a game of tic-tac-toe depending on how you look at them.  Each side is hand painted with non-toxic inks and the blocks themselves are made, in Canada, from unused hardwood scraps. 

I have to say that they are my favorite item in Hip Baby right now!  A perfect blend of nostalgia, great design and functionality.
