I don’t build. As a child, I preferred to read book over building houses, cars, or anything else that required using my hands. But I can say without hesitation, if I had GoldieBlox as a kid, I would have played with them a LOT. GoldieBlox builders kits are versatile – easy enough for non-builders like me and creative architects can make anything they want.
Working with MomDot Media on this compensated post was a breeze, I even helped my kids build some of it! What I loved most was how every single kit comes with an illustrated storybook! Yup, I was reading a story and building the toys as I read through it.
No more boring illustrations that I end up getting wrong, no matter how hard I try. (My poor carpenter husband shakes his head in shame at my inabilities).
And another bonus? It comes in a sturdy, organized, cardboard box. Thank you GoldieBlox for thinking of clean up time!!
In GoldieBlox and the Parade Float, we read about how Goldie and Katinka competed in a talent show – the winner would get to ride in the parade float. When Goldie won, she was a gracious and kind winner and allowed Katinka to ride on her float with her. (Props to Goldieblox for the positive values!)
We built it!! Together! David had a blast building it with his sister. I really wanted to build it too (since this was something I could finally do), but he got so mad at me every single time I reached for a piece. The really fun part of this kit, is that when you pull it across the floor, the yellow barrels in the front spin the toys in circles. And the price is pretty fantastic – only $19.99!
All three kids built the movie machine. It comes with cards (or you can make your own) so when you turn the lever, it makes the images appear to move. The only frustrating thing about this particular project, is how it is difficult to move from place to place. It comes apart pretty easily. But it was a cinch to put together.
GoldieBlox has kits for different age groups. Maybe I should’t be so incredibly excited about my triumphs with the first two, since they are made for ages “3 and up.” (I’ll still enjoy playing with it! Can’t take my pride!)
The huge builder’s survival kit above is made for age 7 and up. It comes with a journal. Inside the journal are detailed instructions for making five huge projects. Then, you can also go to BloxTown.com and find instructions for building even more. (If you are halfway creative with pieces, you have no limit for the amount of stuff you can make with this!). It comes with 190 pieces. 190. Yes. That is a LOT. The box does an excellent job of keeping everything organized, but I am thinking about buying a toolbox for it.
