My kids are little builders and destroyers. It’s like they take their lessons from construction workers and create an elaborate plan, and then destroys it with just as much precision to create the optimal mess!!
When the CitiBlocs found their way to my door two weeks ago, my toddlers were giddy with excitement! I opened the perfectly proportioned block that they were in knowing they would NEVER be so contained again.
We received the 100 block set and it has 20 of the following colors: Turquoise, dark blue, light green, dark green and natural wood. My daughters are still getting used to the idea of sharing, and we are working hard on getting them to play with the blocks and NOT knock over the other persons “creation” even if it looks like an alien baby put it together.
I am excited for Jacob to come home this weekend and get his hands on these! He’s a meticulous kid that can focus when he wants to…. It would be a lot of fun to create some of the cool ships and buildings they have in the “idea book” that comes with the blocks. Great bonding time, right?
Here’s the product description in detail available from Fat Brain Toys’ website:
