An inspiring gift for little architects and designers

An inspiring gift for little architects and designers

Know a budding architect or aspiring designer? Then this delightful magnetic Little Architect's Toolset is the gift for them. Designed by Carlos Ng, a third year student at Parsons The New School for Design, the play set provides the basic tools to build or draw amazing buildings or designs. The colorful, modular blocks, which click and stick together, allows for mix-and-match play while teaching basic concepts about geometry, scale and assembly. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Little Architect's Toolset will be donated to Architecture for Humanity.
