So I was thinking that maybe I should have more photos of kids playing with my toys, especially with new designs I'm working on. As I was daydreaming about this I looked up and saw my boys playing with my wooden building blocks in a ray of morning sunshine. No kidding. And I nearly missed the moment before hell broke loose and the tears came. Hard to build structures when baby brother is knocking it down.
Unfortunately, these wooden blocks aren't new so I don't really need action shots of them. I sold the first set in 2008 because I had too many wood scraps which is what the sets are made from. For the second set I sold a week later, I changed the name from "Crazy Blocks" to "Imagination Blocks" because "crazy" sounded bad. But now I'm not digging that name either.
How about "Toddler Art Sculpture Blocks" for a name? Or "Artsy Toddler Blocks" perhaps? Yeah, I like that one. You'd think after years of making something I wouldn't be sweating names but well, I am.
My son loves to balance them in interesting ways and make "Culptures" as he calls them. One of the last remaining "baby talk" words he has left. Bittersweet.
