When my older children were small, we spent hours playing with Fisher Price sets. I used to imagine that I would one day partner with that company to create a Shul set, complete with Tatty and boy figures, Torahs, and a backyard sukkah with a crank-up roof.
So when I saw the Binyan Blocks ad with the shul AND the sukkah, I knew this was a company after my own heart. Those boys are grown up now, but their younger brothers were very willing to indulge my fantasy and become the proud owners of a few sets of Binyan Blocks.
Even though it was a school night, actually a whole week of school nights, everyone managed to make time for Binyan Blocks. Homework? Two minutes. Put away my briefcase, coat and shoes? Done. Can we build now?
