Factory Town Building Blocks
Author: Ladislav Sutnar
Modernista is now offering a unique playful wooden construction kit. Kids can build and endlessly configure a brightly colored industrial town with the 25 blocks, chimneys, and cars in the Factory Town Building Blocks set. Newly produced by French toy company Vilac, this set of blocks was first created by Czech toy designer and educator Ladislav Sutnar in the 1940s. The original design is represented in MoMA’s collection and was featured in the Museum’s 2012 exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000. Ages 2+. Made of MDF, massive wood, and plywood.
