The Ararat wood block puzzle entertained him too, but not as much as my 5 year old nephew who apparently LOVES it! Even I got a kick out of trying to put it together. It’s not as easy as it seems, but it’s good entertainment for pretty much anyone. And with kids safe paints, I didn’t have to worry about my teething boy munching on the blocks that are just big enough to not be a choking hazard.

Right now I’m only including HDIF and Sardarabad Bookstore for kids gifts from Armenia. HDIF in particular because they are truly amazing and I want them to keep producing these amazing gifts. But if anyone has any recommendations on great Armenian gifts for children, please share them with me at and I’ll test it out and try to include it.
