Man, those luthiers, am I right? So talented! So painstaking in their work! Crafting such beautiful instruments! Neither you nor anyone you know could ever produce anything so beautiful, right?
WRONG! And what’s more, you can have way greater range!
For the second music gift in my annual series, I present: Nanoblocks! Check these out:
They’re like Legos, only tinier. Way tinier. Tiny enough to allow you to reproduce in tremendous detail not only a violin and a guitar but a piano and a drum as well! This is the perfect gift for a) medium-sized children (not small because of the whole let’s-swallow-this-tiny-thing! small children seem to have hardwired into their brains), 2) geeks (also known as the greatest people you’ll ever know).
There’s an entire set available over at Fab.com for what appears to be a sale price of $41. You can also find a few dealers on Amazon selling the set or individuals (that link only shows the piano available solo, but I’ve seen with my own eyes that the violin can be tracked down too). In all cases limited quantities seem to be available, so I’d pounce on this if you’re interested.
Looking for a something with a bit less of a choking hazard? Why not check out the Ain’t Baroque store? Stickers! Magnets! Mugs! T-shirts! Angry violas! Terrible puns! Or in other words, everything you need for your entire holiday shopping list.
