Closed – Bloco toys product review – plus WIN 1 of 2 toy sets!

Bloco construction toys The Let’s Go Mum! girls Brooke (8) and Samantha (6) were very lucky to test-run two new Bloco build and play toys this week – the Bloco Cat and Kitten set, and the Bloco Horses and Unicorns set. They absolutely LOVE ’em!

Bloco construction toys are just brilliant, because they are not just a toy to play with, but a toy that challenges children to use their brains while they are having fun – and the end result toys are super-cute, too! Bright and colourful and with so many ways to interchange pieces, these engaging animal characters go way beyond a one-dimensional toy that quickly bore children. Brooke set to work making herself a cat and managed to sort out the set, read the instructions and

build the toys completely unassisted, with Samantha getting a little assistance from mum to construct her horses and unicorns. Bloco toy pieces fit together using a simple connector system. It’s really quite clever, as it allows the finished toys to be moveable, pose-able – and completely play-able! Constructed of quality materials, Bloco toy pieces are made of a soft, tactile foam-rubber that is great for little-kid fingers to pull apart and put back together. It’s extremely durable too – at only 6, Samantha is less dexterous than her big sister, yet no matter how much she stretched and pulled the pieces out of the base sheets, they didn’t tear, and still fit back together beautifully. The recommended age range for Bloco building sets is 6 to 12 years, and I’d say that these toys would easily suit these ages by a comfortable margin. It was clear that the kids were having a

ball building their creations, and were delighted with the results of their efforts – some very cute new toys! And if you’re wondering if the fun ends after the toy is built – well, no – certainly not yet! Once built, my girls took their Blocos straight outside into the garden to play, and they even sleep with them at night! Brooke’s cat regularly has it’s little pink slippers and bows put on and off and it gets it’s foam bowl of milk at night. Samantha’s horses and unicorns go everywhere with her, and suffer through numerous accessory and heart decoration colour changes! There are some fabulous Bloco sets available, ranging from colourful  zoo animals to huge dinosaurs, and they make such a great alternative to a more simple run-of-the-mill toy. These would delight kids for birthdays or Christmas because they are just so appealing, fun, and challenging for children to think and build in an achievable way, with an awesome toy as a reward at the end!
