"They sold poorly" —

"These Cubismo blocks were commissioned by the magazine as part of a series featuring toys designed by American artists. My idea was to produce a cube made up of 64 plastic blocks. Each plane of sixteen blocks contained a different design motif. Most of the blocks were designed so that, placed together, they produced a variety of continuing patterns. The educational premise was to expose the child to the idea of producing a series of changeable images without a naturalistic framework. They sold poorly." —Milton Glaser
