Budding town planners and mini-architecture aficionados should enjoy sitting down to get handsy with these Blockitecture sets from Areaware. Lest you think they're easily stacked, the pine pieces aren't actually perfect squares; the different angles make for a fun, Jenga-like assembly of make-believe city-blocks.
These solid shapes are about as simple as it gets when it comes to toys, and hey — I dig the colour scheme and geometric, window-lined facades so much that I wouldn't mind lining these up on a shelf of my own for a little absent-minded fumbling when it's time for a mid-day brain-escape. Buy your own for $US25 here. [Areaware]
