My children love building things. When we go to the Children's Museum that is what they spend most of their time doing, building large structures with the different supplies provided there. I was so excited to see Brain Blox Wooden Building Planks from Brain Blox because I knew how much they would love them, and I was right!
Brain Blox Wooden Building Planks are made from New Zealand pine. They have no stains, paints, or dyes, and are all natural and non toxic. All ages of children and adults can use these building planks (the box says ages 4 to 104.) No connectors are needed to build structures, They can be used for any kind of imaginative play, educational learning (building numbers, letters, structures you are studying etc...), STEM projects and more. All of the planks in the box are the exact same weight and size.
Our set came with:
Drawstring bag for storage
Design Ideas Booklet
100 plank and 300 plank sets are also available.
The Brain Blox website has a ton of resources for build ideas. They have free downloadable Let's Build Idea Cards and Brain Blox World Book, links to videos on their Youtube channel, and even ideas for turning planks into super heroes. So many great resources!
When our box arrived, I let the children open it right away even though we were right in the middle of our school day. As you can imagine the rest of that day was used to build structures out of planks! My 8, 10, and 12 year olds love, love, love this set. And 200 planks for $44.95 is very reasonably priced. I am planning on adding another set to our household soon just because with 3 of them using them they could use more.
I love that the set came with a drawstring bag for easy clean up. And all of the blocks fit inside of it! This is a huge bonus for me. Easy clean up makes it a lot more fun for all of us!
There really is no limit to what you can build. If you can imagine it, you can build it. These planks are a great educational toy for your children and grandchildren. Adults will have fun building with them too.
