Building blocks are the perfect toy for stimulating a child’s imagination, but I’m not sure what aspirations you have for your kid if you were to get them this particular set of blocks. Ratata, designed by Tomm Velthuis, looks like a rather innocent box of handcrafted wooden shapes, but when properly assembled they actually create a full size machine gun. So while your kid won’t be building castles with them, they will be developing important skills for infiltrating them. Available soon from Tomm’s website.
