The PixelBlocks building toys, if you aren’t familiar with them, are kind of like Legos. You can hook them together to build things. The big difference (and what makes PixelBlocks better) is that:
• They’re all the same size so every block can link together with every other block.
• They link together not just at the top and bottom but also on the sides.
• There are a bunch of different colors so you can link them together to make colored images and three dimensional figures.
The only limit to what you can create with these things is your imagination.
PixelBlocks are suitable for kids who are 10 years old or older. (They need to be past the sticking-things-up-their-noses phase, because there are a lot of small parts.) They’re made for kids, but to be honest, they’re a ton of fun for adults too.
Here are three other sets you might like. The blocks are all the same in all of the sets. The only difference is the number of blocks in each set.

To the left is a close up of the blocks so you can have a better idea of what they look like. The three pictures below are fun things people have made playing with the blocks.

This video features a boy demonstrating his PixelBlocks skills by making a rather nice portrait of himself. The video is sped up. You can see the whole process from start to finish in about a minute.
