Last night I finally took some time to build my nanoblock pig kit that I received from the nice folks at Ohio Art during the Sweet Suite event. I just love teeny tiny things like this – apparently I inherited this from my mom because she has the same reaction to very small items as I do. I just noticed that recently when we were with Mom and we saw something little and she reacted and Hubby looked at me and pointed out we are the same.
Anyway, back to the pig. Nanoblocks are micro-sized building blocks. These are not for the little kids at all as the smallest piece is only 4x4x5mm. They can easily be lost or eaten – they recommend ages 8 and up. I put the quarter in the photo to give you an idea of how small these blocks really are. The little single square and round pieces were the hardest to work with, but not impossible. It took me about 30 minutes to build this cute little guy.
He is happily sitting on my desk now with my other toys. I think I will have to get more of these sets. They might be fun as stocking stuffers this holiday also or little gifts for other holidays. They have many more animals, buildings, and objects available. You can buy nanoblocks online or at stores around the county.
As a grown-up, do you still like toys like this as much as I do?
Disclosure: As mentioned I received a sample item at an event. The opinions are my own.
