grandma's gift idea . . . Bloco - Tiger & Panda - I'm Giving One Away!

Are you familiar with Bloco? Well, Bloco is a company which makes building toys which are unlike anything I've ever seen before, so when they agreed to send one for me to review - and make another available for me to give away - I was very happy for the opportunity to see what they are all about!

Bloco says they are, "a groundbreaking patented construction toy whose high density foam pieces and uniquely designed plastic connectors interlink, stack and rotate at any angle to create lovable and captivating creatures you can play with or display as decorative items. No two pieces in a box are alike, yet they can be mixed and matched together in an inexhaustible medley of configurations, or even with pieces from other Bloco models. Whether you follow the instructions, or follow your imagination, the possibilities are endless." They are right. Bloco is most certainly "unique" and will absolutely inspire children - and adults to "follow their imagination!"

Tiger and Panda 
By - Bloco
Ages - 5-10

Favorite Features -
  • unique, foam material - unlike any other building toy I've seen before!
  • encourages imagination, thinking, building, creativity and interacting with others to build and create together!
  • you can play with the creatures you build!
I found it can be challenging at times to figure out how to build these items - which piece goes where - but it is worth the time to figure it out as the end result is unique, fun and interesting! Bloco is a fun idea for a gift for children and one which families can enjoy together as they work to create the tiger and panda. 

As you build your tiger or panda which has "movable" legs, be sure to talk with your grandchildren about how God created us so we can move!

As I mentioned, not only did Bloco send one set for me to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only) If you'd like to be in the drawing for a Bloco building set, which will be on December 28, 2012,  please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win this building set and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
