WIRED has a piece about the Japanese answer to the Lego brick, Tsumiki bricks:
I’m going to say something blasphemous: Lego bricks are ugly.
Don’t get me wrong. The little Danish building blocks have plenty of inner beauty, sure, and are one of the 20th century’s most enduring designs. They can be infinitely reconfigured, which means kids’ ideas about design can be endlessly reconfigured as well. Famous architects have said they do what they do because of Lego. Nevertheless, the plastic bricks are not pretty.
