Your typical set of building blocks can be used to create castles, forts, cabins, and an unlimited number of structures that require a healthy dose of imagination to identify. But ArchiBlox come in a wide array of shapes and sizes that let aspiring builders construct true architectural masterpieces that are instantly recognizable.

Like with Lego, the ArchiBlox can be purchased in sets ($17) letting you build real-life landmarks like the Notre Dame cathedral, the Neuschwanstein castle, or the Chateau de Chambord. But afterwards they can be mixed and matched into custom creations, subtly pushing kids towards a future as an architect. (Or a demolitions expert.) The blocks are also magnetic—a brilliant innovation that gives them more structural integrity and lets them stick to an included base for easy display.
