And, they vibrate!
Bay Area-based artivist collective Loud and Queer have developed a line of vibrating sex toys that are created to be gender inclusive.

Building blocks are among a child’s first, and arguably, most important, toys. Once they start stacking one tentatively on top of another, the blocks not only spark waves of creativity, but actual real-world understanding of scientific principles like engineering and physics. It wouldn’t even be a stretch to call blocks on of the first true […]
Time management and self-motivation, the ability to stay on task and achieve in the office or when you’re working with home, is the true test of any person’s professional mettle.

It’s easy to be instantly dismissive about most Bluetooth speakers, especially small travel-sized units.
