Dado Cubes


I like when you find a "kids toy" that appeals just as much to adults, if not more. In fact, I'm half tempted to add this to my own Christmas list - forget coffee table books, I'll take this as a coffee table toy!

Infinitely restackable, Dado cubes give kids a chance to learn about building, balance, volume and color gradation in an ever-changing format. The cubes catch the interests of a very wide age range, plus, whatever form they take, these are great left lying around as a modernist sculpture. They're even a fun size-match challenge to put away. Adults will find themselves reshaping their, ahem, abstract vision of utopia long after the kids have gone to bed.

Available in pink or blue.

Dado Cubes available from Vessel: $25
