Make your own 8-bit world with the 8-Bit Pixel Cube Construction Kit. These silicone rubber cubes have magnets inside so they stick to each and stick to your fridge or other magnetized surface. Create all the classic video game characters you love- Mario, Frogger, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, etc.
This set comes in 8 cubes of 8 colors each (red, magenta, yellow, green, sky blue, navy blue, black, white) and the magnetic nature of the cubes lets you build 3-d designs or stick them on a flat surface. Is it really $24 for a 64 little blocks with a clever geek-oriented marketing pitch? Yes. But when you do something like this stop motion video, it gets you thinking- hmmm.
