Illustration Daily – Day 123: Alphabet Blocks

What better way to transition from children’s literature to toys than through alphabet blocks? We know that these early learning toys have amused children since at least 1693, when John Locke mentioned them as a good tool to promote literacy in children. Alphabet blocks are also helpful in developing hand-eye coordination, and spacial intelligence. Then again, blocks can just be fun to build with . . . and destroy.
