The 'Little Architect Toolset' is a charming construction toy set by Carlos Ng that comes in the form of colorful block-like magnetic pieces.

Ng's playful protractors and rulers were developed for the Parsons+Areaware Design competition, where students were challenged to design an inexpensive set of objects that could be added to Areaware's existing line. Ng's Little Architect Toolset won the competition and will be produced by Areaware, with proceeds from sales going to benefit the Architecture for Humanity charity.

When grouped with similar colors, the blocks make fairly ordinary shapes like rectangles, triangles and semi-circles, but since they are magnetic and interchangeable, there's no limit to the kind of creations imaginative young builders may be able to come up with.
