In the past I’ve written about these little plastic pixel block sets that let you build classic video game characters in 3D. Those sets always seemed a little cheap looking to me, so I’m excited about these new pixel blocks made entirely out of wood.
Each WoodPixel cube has a different shade of wood on each of its six sides, allowing you to create wood toned versions of your favorite pixel art. Sold in sets of 100 cubes and an accompanying 10 by 10 grid tray that holds your creations. The cubes measure 2cm (about 3/4″), and the tray is 26.5cm x 26.5cm (about 10″ x 10″), making this much more substantial than the plastic kits I’ve reported on before.
