ShapeMaker is a set of 25 blocks constructed out of rubber wood by UK firm Miller Goodman.  They are printed with wonderfully colorful geometric designs and every permutation yields fantastic designs, shapes and creatures.  These are exactly the kind of toys I want my children playing with, as not only do they stimulate the mind but they will last forever.  They’re even environmentally friendly, as rubber trees can be sustainably harvested.

This video demo is just too awesome not to post. For more examples, see the ShapeMaker Flickr group.

    Fantastic – thanks Tim!

    I’m going to use a few dollar votes on these.
