These are called Nanoblocks. We picked up a few sets at FAO Schwartz when we were in NYC in August (which I still haven’t written much about - sigh).
The girls chose a tree frog and giraffe. The giraffe has about 130 pieces.
Mark chose a penguin. I chose the terrier, which is charmingly depicted in this wee video:
I want to clarify that NANO means nano. The pieces are SMALL:
… which makes building each critter a whole lot more crazymaking challenging. Once I started thinking of it as a sort of puzzle I was able to have more fun with it. The kids were almost better at it than we were, what with their smaller fingers. Small fingers + small building blocks = success.
I think this one took about 30 minutes to build. The results are pretty adorable.
