CitiBlocs review/giveaway

Well it is no secret I love all things green so when I had the opportunity to review CitiBlocs I JUMPED at the opportunity!
When they arrived my boys ripped open the box and stared playing with them right away. They have not stopped! These block are so cool and unique yet so simple at the same time. They are all cut to the same size requiring no glue and the best thing of all they do not click together, they use gravity and balance.

From their web site:
CitiBlocs are High Quality Building Blocks unlike any other! Crafted from Grade A New Zealand Radiata Pine, each block is engineered and precision cut for new generations of building fun from age old proportions. Citiblocs distinctive design enables Building without Borders – no complicated instructions and no missing pieces. Guaranteed success and pleasure for creative construction, innovation and design.

Building with Citiblocs is all about making connections. Connections to ourselves and to the world around us. It is about learning naturally. With Citiblocs children can create the fantastic worlds from their imaginations or from the environment that surrounds them. They can discover the principles of math and science that allows bridges to span great distances and super-towers to reach the sky. Children can create fun-filled games and works of art that are limited only by their imagination...with Citiblocs the possibilities are endless...




Here are some of the boys creations..




CitiBlocs provide hours of entertainment....my boys have even used them with their other toys, the most popular being Matchbox cars. I can guarantee that Santa will be leaving more CitiBlocs under the tree this year.

What I think is cool about these Citiblocs is that the amount of things a child could build is endless and it is great for their imagination.

Love they foster creativity which is the building block of children's brains. Each creation creates another pathway in the brain which in turn helps the child make sense of their environment.

I like that they are not pre-programmed into various configurations the way so many building sets are.

Each block is perfectly cut to ensure proper balance and stackability. These are so cool. I had never heard of these before but I am sure my son would love a set of the colored ones.

I work in Rehab in the school setting. This is a great tool for giving kids with disabilities the incentive to move forward (for some even that is hard) standing tall, and creating something.

This is the perfect toy to reach those goals!

Thanks so much for this contest. Otherwise, I would have never found such a cool toy.

robin_titan said...

I think the coolest thing is that they are Safe and non-toxic. :)

I think it is cool that anybody can use them. Looks like everyone from my youngest to my oldest can play with them.

mail4rosey said...

The fact that gravity alone holds them together is cool.

wwWinter said...

I love that you can get them in natural no paint coating + All you need is a flat surface and a handful of blocks to Build ANYTHING

ky2here said...

I like the option of completely safe colored blocks - the red and blue set is very fun.

Linda said...

Just put one on top of the other and gravity holds it and they are all the same size and so easy to build with, how cool is that!

jennem said...

I like how small they are--it gives a lot more room for detail than larger blocks.

I like that they come in a 300 Block box Family size
and can come in an all natural wood

justicecw said...

I love that you can build anything you want. Sometimes my son gets in a rut of only building what is on the outside of the box. This looks like he would be able to use his imagination more. Thanks, justicecw@hotmail.com

I like that they can build almost anything!

breiz said...

it's neat how you can build different things even though there are no snaps or screws or connectors

idahomom said...

I like that they are not connected with anything. My husband is an architect and he says that it because of Legos.

paula h said...

I like that they are non toxic. I also like that they appeal to such a wide age range. All of my kids would enjoy it.

I like that they are plain so it leaves everything up to the child's imagination. I also like they have a broad Age range, I Mean my 2 yr old daughter would LOVE them, but So Would I!! I would play with them as well. I think Daddy would too, it would provide hours of entertainment for all 3 of us!

My son happens to be up early during this "me" time and he said they look like little 2x4's and he would build a house for his sister's littlest pet shop pets. I love how they are all exactly the same size.
