So what did our friends think of GoldiBlox?
They thought the building materials were AWESOME!
We had 12 kids and their parents over to test them out!
The kids ranged in age from 2- 10 years old. There was one 2 year old, two 3 year olds, 2 four year olds, 2 five year olds, a six year old, a seven year old, 2 eight year olds, and a ten year old.
What I was surprised is that ALL of the children played and interacted with the materials, building and designing. Some worked independently and other built with their parents.
Mom of 4 year old, “These are sooo cool. We need to buy these for Sarah for Christmas.”
Dad (in the middle of building), nods his head in agreement.
Mom of 4 year old, “And for my husband too!”
Other Dads chimed in that this a really neat toy for them to build with their little princesses.
One friend (a 10 year old) said she was too big for little kid toys. We showed her the different designs at the back of the book and she stayed building the longest, making each project shown!!!
The accompanying book didn’t receive as rave of reviews. Several of the girls read it and said, “way too girly.” They skipped to the back building diagrams. A couple parents commented that it was way too pageant oriented and princessy for their tastes.
I giggled when one of the girls thought that the dolphin didn’t make a very good villain. “Everyone LOVES dolphins,” she commented.
Other kids thought it was really cute.
Would I recommend GoldieBlox toys to other parents?
YES – Most Definitely! The kit is well thought out and provides for not only the building of the featured activity, but more independent play as well. The blox look very well made and should last for a while. It also was a good mix of colors that was visually appealing.
