Plush Tetris Blocks

— January 18, 2006 — Art & Design
It's 15 years later, and I am still addicted to Tetris, so it's appealing that Etsy has launched a line of plush Tetris blocks. Basically, these plushies let you recreate the epic game in the comfort of the 3d world that is your life.

I was too late to bit on the Etsy auction, but the following was the product description: "These blocks are squishily made of simple felt and stuffing. Teach yourself to be better at Tetris. Teach your children to be hopeless geeks before they can even speak!" - Etsy
T
hese sold on eBay for just $30, and I missed it.
