In Madison, we stopped into The Puzzle Box, a small toy store filled mostly with “thinking-person’s toys”. Two companies caught my eye, The Unemployed Philosopher’s Guild and Found Objects. The Philosopher’s Guild has a number of quirky items, including “Brainy Beanies” and “Fruedian Slippers”, my two favorites. Found Objects sells art and zen related games, displays, and things to play with. My favorite is the “Dada Box” game, where you try to make sentences out of words randomly drawn from a bag. The words are magnetic, much like the Magnetic Poetry series, but cheaper and more versitile.
