Here’s a gift that both parents and children will get a kick out of. The Chalk Ware Metropolis chalk set contains eight custom-carved chalk pieces shaped like houses, skyscrapers, and everything in between. They don’t resemble the buildings of a particular city, so they’re perfect for your cousin in NYC or your aunt in Chattanooga. The fun pieces can be used as decorative objects on a mantle, and if mom or dad is feeling generous, the youngsters can take them and create their own works of art on the sidewalk or the chalkboard wall.
The Metropolis chalk set was designed by Matt Austin, a self-taught designer and artist living in New York City. He’s also created three other Chalk Ware sets: Traffic Jam, featuring cars; Junk Drawer, a fun medley of random items like nails, lipstick,and dice; and oceanic, a set of seashells.
