Edo blocks let your kids be creative because you can draw on them and create your own scenes.

We love toys that really open up the imagination. That’s why we love blocks that are versatile  — becoming a castle one day, a spaceship another.

Edo offers recycled cardboard blocks that come in white, cardboard color or a mix of five bright colors. They are also blank, which means that your kids can take out their washable crayons and markers and draw their own scenes on them. Edo also has special pieces you can order like animal eyes.

Edo blocks remind us a lot of Austin-based company PopUp Play, which has color-your-own castles and forts. Both started with KickStarter campaigns. Edo’s began this week. Playsets start at $40 for 25 blocks. playedo.com
