It doesn't matter what unspeakable acts or atrocities they grew up to commit, at one point all mad scientists — from Dr Frankenstein to Dr No — started life as adorable infants. But what turns an innocent toddler into an adult with a penchant for world domination? This set of mad scientist-themed alphabet blocks might be one cause.
Made from laser-carved pieces of maple wood, the blocks replace the typical alphabetical images with inspiration for aspiring super villains. B for ball? Try B for bioengineering instead. And F for flower? That's been replaced with a more useful F for freeze ray. The set of five blocks covers every letter of the alphabet and is available from Etsy seller Xylocopa Design for ONE MILLION DOLLARS! Actually, it's just $US35, which should be easy to raise even without access to a city destroying weather machine.
