Kawada Nanoblock's are a line of Japanese designed and made building block toys, similar to LEGO but much, much smaller (the smallest brick measures just 4x4x5mm.)
Kawada's official description is:
"The smaller it is, the more realistic the work becomes! Nanoblock is an extremely small building block. The smallest part is a mere 4x4x5mm! This amazingly small micro sized block makes it possible to create detailed and even smaller projects than what can be made with standard sized blocks. Nanoblock is a stimulating and entertaining hobby material for everybody, especially for grown-ups."
As part of their ever-expanding popularity, you can easily pick them up in retailers in the UK, Kawada have branched out into character licensed collaborations including an ongoing series of limited edition Disney characters exclusively available at Disneyland Resort Tokyo. Not counting seasonal and anniversary releases they're now on their 6th wave of characters, which includes Bambi and Thumper. The Nanoblock Fan Page website has a comprehensive list of the range starting with the first releases back in 2010, where we also discovered other animation inspires Nanoblock creations including 'The Pink Panther' and 'Woody Woodpecker'!
