Tinte and Colorframes Wooden Toys
I know Lola would love Tinte, a set of notched hardwood building blocks, painted in 42 different colours, which allows a variety of architectural forms and structures to be built. When not in use, it can be hung on the wall in its frame. It comes with a guide to introduces the builder to colour theory and the basic attributes of colour – hue, value and intensity. Tinte is from Learning Materials Workshop and is a bit of a splurge item at $189.99.
If you like the concept but don’t have the cash, try Colorframes (above) - you still get the 42 colours, but for a more palatable $54.99.
