In the Fold
Any set of building blocks lets you construct things, but this origami-inspired system invites you to build the blocks themselves. Based on triangular geometry, the colorful sheets are selfless little beings—they only connect with others and never themselves. Take four or more of the ingeniously engineered pieces, pre-fold them along their scored lines, and snap them together to hug it out. Those tetrahedrons (or octahedrons, or omg-that's-alotta-hedrons) fit together in brightly colored, futuristic forms limited only by your imagination. The super-durable paper pieces will stand up to multiple folding and snapping-together adventures. It's an addictive gift for armchair architects ages 8 and up. Made in New York City.
