The Korable Block by Si-Yeon Min is a fun and interactive game that teaches anyone to speak Korean. Each block contains alphabet characters that can be combined to create over 120 single-syllable words.

Si-Yeon Min is a New-York based designer and architect who had initially created the toy for his son, but due to the simplicity and creativity of the blocks, started to gain international attention.

Children often have short attention spans, and having to teach them a new language isn't always easy, which is why the Korable Block is a great alternative to traditional teaching methods. Min makes a great point by stating on the site, “Among the toys and games designed by architects, a few stand out—Rubik's cube, Sudoku, and the Korable Block.” Min has created a distinctive product that is sure to be around for generations to come.
