520    "The Froebel Gifts are perhaps the world's first 
       educational toys. Developed in the early 1800's by 
       Friedrich Froebel, inventor of Kindergarten, the Gifts 
       appear deceptively simple but represent a sophisticated 
       approach to child development. Over the last 180 years 
       these intricately conceived playthings have had a 
       widespread impact, becoming interwoven with the history of
       art/design, popular culture, and education. Inspiring and 
       informing the work of Maria Montessori, Rudolf Steiner, 
       and others, Froebels Gifts influenced Frank Lloyd Wright, 
       Albert Einstein, Kandinsky, Klee, and more while Mattel 
       used them in designing Tinker Toys, Color Cubes, and Unit 
       Blocks. In Making Classic Toys That Teach, Doug Stowe, a 
       professional woodworker and teacher, presents the history 
       and valuable benefits of each gift while providing step-by
       -step instruction on how to build each toy and the box to 
       hold them" -- from
