I was recently stumped about what to get a friend for her baby shower. And so, I turned to my old friend Etsy and was thrilled to find this stupid cute block set. The old-school illustrations on the blocks are by Kate Greenaway, who was the most popular children’s book author in England throughout the 1880s and 1890s. Apparently, she was quite the trendsetter, too. Her drawings inspired a generation of mothers to dress their daughters in pantaloons and bonnets. Yep, I’m pretty excited about these blocks. Well worth the $36.25.
