Tetris, now in 3D. Also, no screen.

Kubix Tetris BlocksFor those of you like me who spent far too many hours playing Tetris on your Gameboy (RIP), you’ll know instantly why I thought these blocks for kids were a fantastic idea.

The Tetris Blocks by Kubix
come with 50 colorful, geometric blocks that kids can lie flat and
interlock, or just use them as they would regular blocks and let their
imaginations go.

They could even create games out of them, as you see how high you can
stack them, or how many you can fit together of a single color or shape.

Tetris blocks would make a fantastic birthday gift for a toddler, but I think even my
seven year-old would get lost in them for hours, and the carrying strap
on the box makes the block set portable too. One other benefit: your kids are less
likely to see those little blocks dropping in their heads all night
long than they would be with the video game. Ahem. –Liz
