Mad Scientist Alphabet Blocks

Our obsession with the alphabet continues unabated with these absolutely fabulous Mad Scientist Alphabet Blocks, a delightful epitome of play-accelerated learning.

Both a pragmatic education tool for your (or your friend’s) tiny mad scientist and a beautifully crafted typographic treat for the design lover, the round-edged blocks are free of dyes and harmful finishes for extra safety and general Earth-friendliness.

The set includes five gorgeously crafted wooden blocks, each with six mad science concepts — from appendages to zombies — and the appropriate letters per side. The typography is based on original pen-and-ink drawings, carefully laser-etched onto solid American maple wood.

The complete A-Z, in all its geeky glory:
