I have to say that Brain Blox has been probably our favorite item to review as a family. Everyone has had so much fun from the 4 year old to the adults! I love to see how creative our projects have become.
We received the Brain Blox Wooden Building Planks set that includes 200 wooden building planks. The 200 block set is the perfect amount to put together amazing creations and even for siblings to share. The wooden building planks are 100% all-natural, precision-cut, chemical-free New Zealand pine wood.
Included with the set is a drawstring bag for easy storage. I’m all about toys that come with their own storage bag!
The owners of Brain Blox are also a homeschool family, so they know what items homeschooled kids need and love.
I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first since it just seems so simple to just have little wooden planks, but once the kids flipped through the building guide, they were set for hours. My children were able to construct several of the many samples in the inclosed full-color Build Ideas Booklet. There are so many fun options but plenty of room for creativity and free play, too. The possibilities are truly endless!
Above, you can see the robot my son created by following a design in the booklet. I was pretty impressed since it takes a lot of patience and coordination to get some of the building ideas to stay together.
My 8 year old daughter made something a little simpler. She made a flower that was also featured in the booklet.
We were also able to find a ton more ideas of how to use the blocks on their Free Stuff for Blocks website page. This website is an incredible resource! On this site, they include ideas such as building letters and shapes, how to build castles and bridges, brain puzzles, and even a curriculum! I plan to use these blocks to help my 4 year old remember how to form his letters and shapes. The printable card ideas that are available on their free stuff website will help us with that.
With Christmas coming up, Brain Blox are a wonderful gift idea to help kids think and they do not require batteries or accessories at all. I think they would also travel very nicely in the bag if you plan to take any road trips and need things for kids to do at Grandma’s or in a hotel. Interested in purchasing a set? You can find Brain Blox on their website and on Amazon. Currently Amazon has a sale on Brain Blox!
I am so thankful we had an opportunity to review this amazing set and we look forward to playing with it for many years to come.
