Japanese designers at Mokurokku have elevated a standard issue toy to an art form in their wooden Lego bricks [4] that are both beautiful and biodegradable! The handmade birch and maple pieces interlock perfectly with standard plastic Lego blocks [5] for an unexpected variation on play. Treated to retain their natural hues, the bricks also stand out as being constructed from a decidedly different material than the ages-old, primary-colored pieces.

The tactile difference between wooden and plastic Lego bricks may encourage kids to ponder what other inconsistencies exist between the natural and manufactured worlds — or, as with other grand parenting education schemes, the disparity may go largely unnoticed. Either way, these Lego pieces are a welcome addition to the toy box, and a refreshing departure from the ubiquitous plastic that comprises most playthings.
