SNAPO Click, Slide, and Rotate Your Way to Building Fun!

Disclosure: I received a sample product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


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.


There are a lot of different brands of building blocks/kits, but for me, there a few things that really make Snapo stand out above the crowd. First and foremost, I like that they come with a storage container. This handy plastic jar makes it easy to store the pieces when they're not in use, and they help make clean-up a breeze too. It's a vertical container too, so it doesn't take up hardly any space at all.

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+

You can learn more about SNAPO by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

  4. My son would have loved these. I can't tell you the hours and hours he and I played with his Lego's. We had a great time. These look far more flexible than Lego's.

  21. Yeah some toys just have too many pieces or are too complicated. Sometimes simple toys are the best as they allow kids to maximise their creativity and imagination!
