I received a set of Nano Blocks while I was at Toy Fair. Ohio Art is the U.S. distributor for them. These things are very, very tiny but fit together pretty well. You can make a bunch of different models with them. While they are cute and interesting I’m not a big fan of their price. The little tree frog that I got goes for $10.99. It may be complex to make these pieces but not worth that much in the least. You can spend that same amount on Mega Bloks or LEGO and get a toy that you can actually play with.

It would have been so cool to have been there, Joselin even got to interview Aaron Paul! That is fantastic. It was all part of a media tour where Director Scott Waugh and stars Aaron Paul and Scott Mescudi met with fans at screenings across the country in markets including Atlanta, Boston, Seattle, Dallas, and New York.
