XYZ Wooden Blocks by Christian Northeast
They're made like the classic wooden blocks that have been played with by generations of children all over the world. The difference here is their iconography. Executed in a retro style, Christian's illustrations offer a slice of pure Americana: from flamingos and eight balls to vinyl and x ray specs. There's no doubt that the set is bound to improve anyone's vocabulary too - how about U for Uvula?
For your kids, or just to look pretty, the blocks cost £29.
