This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for stopping by. The winner is Reva Skie. Congrats!
It’s so hard to believe that Christmas is less than one month away! We’ve been doing some shopping for my son but nothing we buy him is going to top the Toobeez set he received! Christmas came early for all three of us because we’ve literally been playing with these awesome tinkertoys nonstop!
Toobeez are a life-sized construction building system with a multitude of uses. Young and old will have fun using them as a toy, an educational tool, a teambuilding prop or even a therapeutic aid. When I opened the box in front of my son he exclaimed, “Oh wow!” and that’s how I felt too! My husband and I both were impressed by this open-ended, educational, innovative toy!
The building sets include interlocking tubes and spheres that can be put together to create an endless number of projects. From simple cube shapes to something as complex as a super jet fighter you’re only limited by your imagination. I always prefer open-ended toys that foster creativity and encourage learning and skill development. This is the type of toy that a child can play with for years and still find new ways to play.
We received the 57 piece set which includes 32 tubes, 20 connector hubs, 4 slide-on curtains, a multimedia training CD, and 2 Project Connect Activity Workbooks in a portable carrying bag. Here are a couple of projects we built together. We’ve barely skimmed the surface of endless play possibilities!
Playing with Toobeez encourages creative thought, promotes critical thinking, develops coordination and motor skills, enhances problem solving and promotes social play. I don’t often purchase large, expensive toys for my son because he’ll outgrow them or boredom will drive him to the next most popular toy on the market. I don’t imagine my son will ever tire of these…and if he does…daddy and I will have fun playing with them!
There are several different kits available for purchase on the site. Now through December 5 when you purchase the 57 piece kit which retails for $99.99, you’ll receive an extra 15 piece kit (valued at $24.99), the Big Idea Book, and free shipping!
Win It! I am reluctantly departing with my 15 piece set (it’s still sealed in the box!) because I want one of you to experience Toobeez with your children. Head on over to the site and take a look around. Come back here and leave me a comment telling me the first project you will build if you win. Comments will close on December 23, 2008 at 10 pm PST.
