By junior high, Tiffany Ard was a self-identified nerd. "I was too afraid of being hit by a ball to do sports, too shy to be a theater kid, too unpopular to be one of the popular kids," says the illustrator and science enthusiast. "The kids I spent time with liked writing stories and inventing languages and pretending to be time travelers." When she had a child of her own, Tiffany realized there were plenty of toys designed to make tots smart and successful—but dorky for the sheer fun of it? Not so much. Her Nerdy Baby line fills the (cosmic) void. "The best gifts invite open-ended play and make kids feel empowered to experiment fearlessly," she notes. "If they happen to learn some fun science facts, all the better."

Bought this as a gift for my one-year old niece, the daughter of two educated parents. I thought they would enjoy teaching her about quirky / obscure concepts, and I was right! The gift went over very well.

I had realized ahead of time - through other reviews - that the blocks did not come with any sort of legend / glossary. I printed it out from the web and laminated it myself and bound them with a key ring. Having the glossary was essential to understanding what the gift was about, and I really wish it had just come with it. I also realized - unfortunately not ahead of time and too late to go back and order it - that the blocks did not come with a storage container. I wish it had.

                It was a present for a baby shower. My friend is a professor and was having her second child. It seemed both suitable for a baby, but also to hint at a life beyond children!

                      These blocks are all awesome and tons on fun. My son (almost 2) loves stacking them as tall as he can and then knocking them down. My husband and I love reading the blocks.
                      The only issue is the "M" block has "m" words on 2 sides, but the other 4 sides are "o" block sides.

                      I am a civil engineer, so when I saw these blocks I had to buy them for my 2 year old son. They are very durable with his rough play. And the learning behind them will be used for years to come. The only issue I have with these blocks is the colors are not nearly as vibrant as in the picture. I know computer screens can show different colors, but I was not expecting the coloring to be that much more dull in person. They are still great blocks, but this does cause the words/pictures shown on the blocks to be less legible than shown in the picture. I would still order these again...in fact I just purchased them for a coworkers baby shower.
