Blockaroo sets are marketed for children between the ages of 18 months and 6 years as an early STEM toy. For tiny tots, they can use Blockaroo builders to learn shapes and sorting, or colors and counting. For preschoolers and kindergarteners, Blockaroo can introduce concepts of engineering, problem solving, and spatial reasoning.
However, kids can find benefits with Blockaroo if they are older than age 6, too! The foam builders can be a visual tool for older kids learning about architecture and geometric shapes; they are great props for science fair projects; and the magnetic “click” that you get from connecting the pieces, and the clicking sound when you rotate the pieces, can make Blockaroo pieces great for fidgeting.
While kids can follow the pattern from the set they get or let their imaginations run wild, Blockaroo can also be a great remote learning and home school tool. Provide a prompt, such as only using certain shapes or colors and see what creation results. Alternatively, have your kid read a book and then use the Blockroo builders to build something relevant to the story, then have them explain what they created (either orally or in writing) to work on handwriting or public speaking skills.
Parents and caregivers will love this final feature: Blockaroo sets are dishwasher safe! Put them in the top rack of a dishwasher to clean and sanitize them. One tip to share is to consider placing them in a delicates bag so that the pieces don’t fall to the bottom of the dishwasher.
All in all, Blockaroo magnetic foam builders are buoyant, boredom-busting blocks that are fun for budding builders!
