My parents were both school teachers, so we had no shortage of educational toys scattered about our home on any given day. One of my favorites were Tangrams – I fondly remember an entire summer dedicated to creating different animals from the colored triangles at my disposal.
Now, a short 25-something years later, I still love the idea of creating something out of nothing. It’s so metaphorical – the idea of puzzles. That we’re all just doing the best with the pieces we’ve got, attempting to pull together a portrait that looks like something worth keeping around for a bit.
Naturally, these cardboard magnets from KidsonRoof caught my eye today – hundreds of individual magnets in beautiful colorways and shapes, ready to be pieced together into a fridge-worthy display.
Because whether we’re young or old, everyone just wants a spot on the fridge, you know?
Set of 288 available for $36 at Amazon.
p.s. More modern refrigerator magnet games.
