Look! Toypography

Look! Toypography

If you've ever been frustrated by the fact that most alphabetical toys and games stick pretty closely to the English alphabet, then you should check out Toypography. It's a set of blocks whose many free-form shapes are designed to create any English or Japanese character. We're willing to bet that with a little ingenuity you could delve into other languages, too.

Created by the Dainippon Type Organization, each set of Toypography blocks forms a word in both English and Japanese -- your choice of bear, bird, fish, monkey, tiger, horse and rabbit. The pieces are also a puzzle that can be assembled to form the same creature.

The tricky part is figuring out how to order a set, since the site is largely written in Japanese. Any tips from our readers?
