Kurt Naef's Building Blocks (1955) were among the first of his designs for children and a core component of his Basel-based companyâ€™s educational philosophy. These blocks can be stacked and nested to form staggered constructionsâ€”bridges and towers, for instanceâ€”stimulating a childâ€™s creativity. Ages 3 and up.
