Smaller than the average Snowman
Our Japanese friends have always been masters of miniaturisation, from hotel rooms to high tech gadgetry. But who knew they would be able to shrink something as massive as Christmas?! Not us, until we clapped eyes (albeit with a bit of squinting) on Christmas Nanoblocks
are cool micro versions of Diablocks
, the Japanese equivalent of everyone’s favourite studded building blocks (you know, the Danish ones beginning with L). But why so small? Well, smaller blocks mean smaller projects, greater detail and more realism. Plus you can fit finished models in the palm of your hand.
Despite their diminutive dimensions, Nanoblocks are just as precise as regular sized building blocks. This is down to a clever double-ridged backing system
that makes clicking them together a cinch. And because each brick is flat, models are built up in successive layers. You even get a base plate on which to plonk your tiny creation. Satisfying? You’ll be addicted to Nanoblocks in seconds.
Cool and alternative, Nanoblocks are conclusive evidence that it’s not all about size, especially in the world of make-believe construction. But what can you make with these titchy bricks? In these festive sets you can build a smaller-than-life Santa
, or a happy jolly Snowman
. But why not stretch those creative muscles and create something entirely your own? With Nanoblocks the only thing holding you back is your imagination.
