I was looking for kid’s steampunk stuff online and this was so amazing I thought it needed its own post.
Over at Xylocopa you can buy these absolutely beautiful steampunk wooden blocks.
Each of the 26 blocks has beautiful mad-science inspired scenes on them.
But the best part is what the letters represent. This is not your traditiona alphabet (and far more fun!):
A – Appendages
B – Bioengineering
C – Caffeine
D – Dirigible
E – Experiment
F – Freeze ray
G – Goggles
H – Henchmen
I – Invention
J – Jargon
K – Potassium
L – Laser
M – Maniacal
N – Nanotechnology
O – Organs
P – Peasants (with Pitchforks)
Q – Quantum physics
R – Robot
S – Self-experimentation
T – Tentacles
U – Underground Lair
V – Virus
W – Wrench
X – X-Ray
Y – You, the Mad Scientist of Tomorrow
Z – Zombies
How fabulous is that?
The folks at Xylocopa also have a great printable PDF of the Alphabet. Personally, I think it would make a great embroidery sampler! (If anyone makes one, I’ll post pictures.)
