While at Toys R Us the other day, I came across this new building block toy called Nanoblocks. They’re super small. So small in fact that a 2×4 Nanoblock is the exact same width and depth as a 1×2 LEGO brick. See below.
I like ’em. I really like ’em a lot. But I don’t like the price. $8 for a tiny kit of various animals (see frog above), and $15 for a larger kit of various monuments (see gray Japanese thing above).

If they make those LEGOs any smaller, each dot will be one molecule.
