How does our building assortment stack up? We think it’s pretty comprehensive, with all the selections you’ll need to satisfy your little construction buff – but let’s check it out just to make sure.
First of all, we have our Building Blocks department, which contains all the basic open-ended sets that let beginners do their first experiments with building. Classic wooden unit blocks are in every kindergarten class for a reason: they’re easy to grip and stack, they make a satisfying sound together, they’re sturdy, and they invite social play. Bristle blocks, Wedgits, and other plastic and wooden blocks round out our selection. read more
Magnetic Blocks add another dimension to building play: because they can defy gravity, kids can engage in more creative construction, and more interesting problem-solving tasks. Kids are irresistibly drawn to Tegu Blocks and Geomags.
LEGO Blocks are so well-loved by both kids and parents that they get their own department, and the fun can be as broad or as specific as you like. Prefer open-ended play? We’ve got sets for toddlers and for older kids. For more structured construction, we’ve got LEGO City sets galore, and LEGO Star Wars sets too. LEGO sets let kids build structures they can then play with – and what’s more satisfying than making your own toys?
Perhaps making your own marble mazes? Building Marble Runs lets kids experiment with gravity and acceleration, as well as attractive design, and every set is different. Quadrilla marble run sets can even make music!
Construction toys give kids practice with fine motor skills and invite them to exercise their creativity. And hey – Frank Lloyd Wright credited his first set of wooden blocks with sparking his interest in architecture, so you never know what your child might be building up to. show less
