I, For One, Welcome Our New Russian Oligarch Overlords--With These Blocks!


With all their petrorubles, the Russians are buying up the entire art world! Soon they'll be coming for Rockefeller Center. [Will they do any better than the Japanese did? Stay tuned!]

I'm not saying you should fire your Mandarin-speaking nanny, but in order to prepare your child for the next round of Cold War: Peak Oil Edition, I suggest buying her these Russian Blocks, made by the German [!] toymaker Haba.
