These quirky wooden blocks offer the perfect antidote to the traditional ABC. A is for Apple? No way! A is for Afro, silly. And G is for Graffiti. And Q is for Quicksand. You get the picture, right?
The blocks were designed by cool US company Fred, so some of the words are Ã¼ber-American (think corn dog, waffles and trailer), but that doesn’t detract from their genius. Illustrated by Christian Northeast, there are sixteen blocks in total, and they come in a wooden tray for storage. A great baby gift for your less conventional chums. Â£29.95 from Rockett St George.
