One place we can compromise is with these wooden blocks from Tree by Kerry Lee. They’re beautifully crafted with soothing vintage colors and retro images of toys and animals, numbers and letters. Exactly what a block should be, minus the corners which are notably rounded. And my daughter loves the satisfying banging sound you get when you smash two of them together.They’re available for $24 at Swell Baby.
After all, how many plastic things can one family have around the house anyway? On second thought, don’t answer that. –Liz
