The creators of the Mokurokku Wooden LEGO Set discuss the dwindling numbers of naturally derived objects found around the modern home. There were several goals in mind in the production of these lovely little toy blocks that should result in enriching children's playtime experience in a more wholesome way.

Birch and maple lumber was used to manufacture these LEGO-like pieces that each have the rectangular dimensions of 32 x 16 x 13 millimeters. Warm earthy tones and lovely woodgrain patterns delight the eyes and the sense of touch. With the Mokurokku Wooden LEGO Set, kids are encouraged to begin playing with their hands again and appreciating the valuable qualities of organic materials. They will learn more complex properties as well since the little building blocks might be harder or easier to stick together depending on the weather.
