Kids can use their imaginations to make lots of things from basic shapes, but try as we might we haven't been able to make a passable mustache from our son's block collection.
PlayShapes by MillerGoodman are 74 wooden pieces that can be combined and arranged to create an unlimited number of faces, shapes and montages. Honestly, we'd like to have a crack at these ourselves so we suspect these would be fun for kids and people of all ages. They'll be available through MillerGoodman (£69.95) as well as stores in about a month. You can see more fun PlayShapes creations at a Flickr group they've started.
