Found an item that will surely please some of the toughest customers.
Ages 3 and up
Recently when visiting the Science Museum Oklahoma, I
lost an hour of time in the Tinkering Garage area playing
with these thin wooden blocks. Made from renewable
pine, the blocks use gravity and imagination to create.
Each package comes with an idea book, showing a photo
