Instead of glossy plastic, their bricks are made from actual woods like maple and birch and are precisely crafted to play nicely with your existing mountains of Lego. At $32 for a sack of 50 they're actually not outrageously expensive either, and if you ever reach the point where you feel you've outgrown building toys, they'll probably make for fantastic kindling as well.
