Oak Balancing Blocks
Not just for kiddos.
We might be “grown-ups” (or something), but we’ll never get over the simple satisfaction of stacking blocks and turning the wooden shapes over in our hands. These wooden balancing blocks are many-sided (10 sides each, to be exact, which makes them look like stones) and a little bit modern, thanks to a light wash of white or marine-inspired paint. Stack them into sculptures then set them on a side table or bookshelf—then topple them over and stack them up again.
