“I got tired of everything made in China\,” explains Gary Murphy of Circa Toys\ talking on the phone from a hardware store where he's gathering supplies to make woodblocks. Murphy recreates the kinds of building blocks he got as a 2-year-old in 1942. The goal\ he says\ is to help kids—including his own grandchildren—move away from \"battery-operated everything\" and towards toys that encourage creativity. Because this Boat includes blocks in many shapes—pegs\ circles\ hexagons—kids use their imaginations to build everything from robots to trains. No batteries required."
