Toy building blocks are a staple for playtime and the Bitblox set featuring pixelated characters give the classic blocks a tech-savvy boost. The wooden blocks feature the alphabet in low-res, 8-bit format in a vibrant array of contemporary colors that visually stimulate children as they play.

In addition to featuring the alphabet, the Bitblox are embellished with pixelated characters that range from cute aliens to LOLing smiley faces. The blocks are designed by Glyfyx, a mobile game company based out of San Francisco that created the Bitblox because of inspiration from “low-res pixel lettering seen on the computer screens and in video games of yore…” Each set includes 28 blocks and features 168 different letters, characters and symbols made from renewable wood, and printed using non-toxic inks.
