Nanoblocks are a big hit in our house. My oldest is an avid Lego fan. So when she saw that Nanoblocks were 1/8th the size of a standard building block, she knew she was up for the challenge.
A few months ago, we headed to Kinokuniya Bookstore to meet the people behind Nanoblocks: Ohio art. It was great to hear that this father son family owned business has been around for 104 years. Ohio Art is well known for Etch-A-Sketch.
When I saw the different sets available, the teacher in me thought, Nanoblocks are great for school. NY state third graders study World Communities. The “Sites to See” Series includes:
- Taj Mahal
- Giant Banyan Tree
- Mont Saint Michel
- Moai Statues
- Sagrada Familia
- Kinkakuju Temple
- Eiffel Tower
Nanoblocks is the fastest growing construction item in Japan. I’m sure that it will be popular in the US too. Astra (American Specialty Toy Retailing Association) has named Nanoblock new toy construction of the year.
I like the affordable prices. $16.99 for a Sites to See set and $8.99 for the mini series animals. The age range for Nanoblocks is 8 and up.
You can find Nanoblocks in:
- Toys r Us
- Barnes noble
- specialty stores

My favorite quote from the day: “The bigger you get, the smaller your blocks should be.”
Wouldn’t the Nanoblocks make a great stocking stuffer this holiday season?
I was not compensated for this post. I did receive a Nanoblock gift bag with Ohio Art favorites like Etch-A-Sketch and Air Pick.
