Architecture inspired city design is also the perfect despcription for today’s second item, Muji’s City In A Bag wooden blocks. These are esthetic toys available with iconic sites of New York, London, Paris and Tokyo. They are beautiful to look at and would just as well make the perfect piece of decoration on a desk, since I believe they make really original paperweights. In fact, they are not necessarily aimed at children, but at traveling adults with collector aspirations, to be honest. But they seem to be just perfect for kids, and I do like the idea of familiarizing your children with differnt cities and famous buildings early on. Even though they will not know about the real places at that age, they will certainly be fascinated when they see an image of the Empire State Building and realize, that they have a miniature version, or when they actually see it for the first time in real life. Besides, along all the ugly clutter available, it is nice to see some items that also appeal to an adult’s sense of beauty.
Each set retails for £5.95, available at Muji.
