Interlox {Guidecraft Mom Review and GIVEAWAY}

Guidecraft has created another amazing building toy ~ Interlox 96 piece setimageThis set has sparked creativity and imaginative play in my 7 year old daughter and my 4 year old boy.     

About Interlox 96-Piece Building Set

Interlox building set contains 96 brightly colored translucent pieces, in 6 different colors;  yellow, blue, purple, green, orange, and pink.  Each block has a design inset on it (heart, square, circle, diamond, star, octagon, or flower).  The building pieces slide and clip together ~ no tools or small pieces required.  The set is recommended for ages 3 and up.

What We Thought

Finding toys that my daughter and son can both use to create and build with is a struggle.  I often hear that something Aiden likes is babyish, and Aiden gets frustrated with small pieces that are hard to put together.  Not with this set, each of the kids used the building pieces to create things that interested them.  My daughter created things for her Polly Pockets, including a Mall,

and bed. IMG_5137

My son had no problem sliding the pieces together.  He made an airplane

IMG_5125  and lots of tall towers.

IMG_5175

Mommy was please because I could throw in some educational activities.  Aiden counted the pieces and Emily skip counted by 2’s,  3’s, 4’s, etc.

We worked on patterns and naming all the shapes. IMG_5158

I didn't even need to go to the link to know which product is my favorite. Though I LOVE them all, I have to say that I am most impressed with the "kiddie" furniture. I love the "kiddie" couch and when darling hubby washed the red cover ( not supposed to wash it in the washer) and then proceeded to dry it in the dryer (definitely not supposed to do this) and it shrank they were wonderful about getting me a replacement cover shipped out the very next day. I've never had any complaints with any of their products and the kids love them all.

There are too many great items to choose a favorite. However, as a homeschooler - I am drawn to the manipulatives as educational toys/teaching tools. I have two children with 7 years between them and the manipulative items can be enjoyed by both - which is a beautiful thing!

Olive's mum said...

I'd love to own an All in one Modern Kitchen.

In would have to say CONSTRUCT-IT 321 PCS SET for my 6 yo son. Thanks for the opportunity to win Interlox!!

Hard to pick one favorite! If I was going to buy something today, it would be the "Feel and Find"
I'd like to try the magneatos, I'd love to have the market or bus play loft, I want a book display, and much more!
