21 Abstract Children’s Toys

From Stackable Strategy Games to Minimalist Logic Games

— July 17, 2013 — Art & Design
When it comes to purchasing a toy for little ones to play with, choosing something that will keep them occupied and intellectually stimulated is essential, and these abstract children's toys are offering up some creative ways to challenge little tots.

While most children's toys feature adorable references to iconic television shows or display clear-cut shapes or figures, these abstract designs are featuring geometric shapes and intellectual concepts that will truly inspire your children. These creative toy designs are challenging youngsters to look beyond what they initially see, to discover the strategic and often creative uses to these visually abstract designs.

From steel-frame rocking chairs that are visually artistic to stackable strategy games that requires thought and patience to complete, these abstract children's toys will certainly provide an intellectual alternative to the other more simple and straight-forward games.
