Ratata Wooden Blocks Aren’t For Building Castles

Ratata Building Blocks (Images courtesy Tomm Velthuis)
By Andrew Liszewski

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.

    Heyyy, look at that. That sure looks neat.

    Actually, that's a rifle, not a “machine gun.”

    And it's kind of awesome. I'd buy it for my niece.
