Toys: Wooden Blocks

If you have kids, and don't yet have a really good set of wooden unit blocks, well, check Barclay Blocks out. They seem to have some really nice block sets, including some that are breathtaking in scope. In addition, they seem to have a genuine love for blocks, with pictures of finished block sculptures and buildings for those that need a little inspiration, and unit blocks that you can buy ala carte to complement your existing set.

A few years ago, I acquired a very nice set of wooden blocks from PlanToys, and while they still have some nice unit blocks for sale, they really seem to focus more on colorful wooden toys nowadays.

I was especially taken with the fact that you provide directions and tips on how to make your own blocks. I myself lack the time, inclination and skill to do this, but it shows me that your company has an ethic I can really respect. (I'm tempted to draw comparisons to the open-source movement in computer science.)
