Take It From Me: Gift Guide: Bloco Toys Review & GIVEAWAY CLOSED

December 15, 2011

Gift Guide: Bloco Toys Review & GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Bloco Toys are self-constructed toys which come to life as you build!
There's a great selection of different Bloco creatures you can create!
I had the opportunity to review Bloco's Lizards & Chameleons construction set as well as their Primates of the World Chimpanzee with my kids.  I was completely surprised at just how much fun these toys were.  The construction process is unique, simple, and super fun!  From start to finish, my kids and I had a lot of fun putting the toys together!  After we completed them, my kids had tons of fun playing with the creations and using their imaginations to bring the toys to life. 
Bloco toys actually uses "innovative patented pieces which interlink, stack and rotate at any angle to create a virtually endless permutation of creatures."  Their pieces are also highly dense, safe, easily to manipulate, washable, and I also found them to be very durable!  My two year old was being pretty rough with them and I was certain something was going to end up broken, but the pieces were able to withstand all of the harsh wear and tear from my son--it was great!
Somethings that I particularily like about the Bloco toys are:
- They are soft which makes putting them together easy on the hands and safe during play
- The toys are moveable and can be manipulated into different positions
- You can take the toys apart and put them together over and over again for hours of endless fun
- The toys actually nuture fine motor skills as well as shape recognition

You can find Bloco Toys at Toys R Us
