We're excited to share a new product that we just LOVE: Olliblocks. Designed by our friend (and talented Illustrator teacher) Alma Loveland, these printable designs are the perfect DIY toy for your kids. And they'd be great for a teachers gifts and Christmas gifts. The directions tell you how to make them into blocks, but I think you could make these in lots of different ways. For a really light weight travel busy bag you can just print them out on cardstock and laminate them, then you've got a fun mix and match activity for the go. Or you could put magnets on them and do it on your fridge. For a more tactile, but still smaller version, you could attach them to wooden tiles. The possibilities with these designs really are endless.
And Alma is offering our readers a special discount: 25% off the printable Olliblock sets with code 2STORY25 (offer expires Wednesday October 17, 2012 at midnight PST.
