Feeling scatter-brained? Well, you’re not alone.
Studies show the average person has a shorter attention span than a goldfish. Sure, it’s embarrassing, but can you blame us? Thanks to our computers, smartphones, and tablets, we have a world’s worth of information, videos, and photos at our fingertips. And with a never-ending do list, our brains need a break.
You could watch endless cat videos on YouTube or play an addicting game on your smartphone, but if you’re looking for a productive way to unwind or refocus, Mini Materials’ Cinder Blocks may do the trick.
A twelfth of the size, these mini cinder blocks are made of actual cement — just like the real deal. Each set comes with 24 bite-sized blocks and mortar, which you can use to create a pen holder, coaster, or a pint-sized statue.
But Mini Materials’ Miniature Cinder Blocks set is a lot more than fun and games: It’s a great way to refocus your attention, practice strategic thinking, and unlock your creativity. Or if you’re looking to schmooze with colleagues, use it as a conversation starter.
Normally, the set is $28, but for the next few days, you can shave a couple dollars off ’em (get them for under $23). Whether you’re looking for a Father’s Day gift or a fun way to refuel your brain at work, it’s a small investment well spent.
