Do you have a budding architect in your family? I’m a big fan of these Haba Skyscraper blocks, which allow you to construct interesting buildings and cityscapes. Finn likes to build verrrrrry tall buildings with them. I’ve also heard good things about CitiBlocs, available from one of my favorite online toy retailers—Oompa.
Haba also makes a Leaning Tower of Pisa set, and don’t forget about vintage building favorites like Legos, Tinker Toys and Lincoln Logs.
Need more ideas for that future Gehry or Wright? You could pair the blocks with the picture book Iggy Peck, Architect, which looks so good I think it may find its way to my house via Santa’s pack this Christmas!
Do you have any “professional” favorites for your little one?
