If you're of the mindset that encouraging a child's imagination is one of the best ways to further their development, you're gonna love these gorgeous building block sets from Huzi that has kids building trucks and race cars. And, believe it or not, despite a lack of sounds, lights and battle action, kids will probably love them too.
Made from solid wood with hidden magnets to keep the blocks connected (even during the imaginary head-on collisions they're bound to endure) Huzi's Christmas sets come in two different versions: one geared towards building trucks for $US120, and one that lets kids build cars for $US100.
And the blocks that serve as the upper parts of the vehicles are actually finished with a matte black chalkboard paint so kids can add windows, racing stripes and other non-permanent features that can be easily erased again and again. [Huzi]
