My son likes to build things, and he's pretty great at it too. He'll start off reading the directions and make something as suggested. When that works out, the real fun begins and he'll branch out and do his own thing. Some of the concoctions he comes up with really crack me up. He's got a great imagination! One way to encourage both (his love of building and his imagination) is through Snapo.
Second, I like that there are not a bazillion pieces in the kit. While huge building kits have their place, it's also nice to have a smaller container like this one, where projects can be made quickly and with ease.
Third, we really like that these little pieces are so sturdy!
Fourth, these pieces are easy to assemble, and they don't come off until you take them off (yet they pop off very easily when you're trying to do so intentionally). They snap, slide, and/or rotate (loving that they rotate!) at will, and honestly they're just so easy to work with....this little set has become and instant household fave.
Last night after dinner and just before bed (hence the jammies ;) ) my son and I took these out to build. Above you see he made a little Palm Tree, a house, and a little guy.
And then he made a little car for his guy (with a propeller on the back, in case the little guy needed to go really fast ;) ).
These SNAPO blocks were such a huge surprise to me. I had no idea how much I was going to really like these, but I do! And I recommend them to anyone who has a little one who likes to build. They've got every single thing I would ask for, if I made a list of what I'd like to see in blocks. There are many different styles/sizes of sets to choose from...take a look around and see what you like! These are recommended for children ages 3+
