Blocked Legislation

Teach your kids all about the political stagnation in Washington!

The buildings of Washington D.C. are immobile, stagnant testaments to the American political system. And now, with the ArchiQuest: US Capitol and Presidents set, you can educate your children about both the architecture and fundamentally flawed incrementalism of D.C.'s most august institutions.

The set includes 203 wooden blocks featuring motifs from the District's architecture, and representing the maddeningly piecemeal legislative approach of the modern two-party system. You can build the U.S. Capitol Building, home of the do-nothing congress, or the Jefferson Memorial, where as much useful policy has been enacted as anywhere else (read: none).

Of course, your know-it-all children may point to health care and infrastructure investments, but…wait a second. Where are your kids learning about all this? And if they're so smart, why are they playing with blocks? Are they really children at all, or are they NSA OPERATIVES IN CHILDREN DISGUISES?? OH GOD THEY'RE EVERYWHERE. EVERYONE MUST KNOW! DON'T BE SILENT!
