What are Toobeez? Here is some information from their site:
TOOBEEZ are a giant, lift-size version of the classic children's construction set.
From playhouses to super-forts, teepees, castles, lemonade stands and more, there's no limit to what your children can build with TOOBEEZ and their own imaginations.
"Playing with TOOBEEZ:
- Encourages creative thought
- Promotes critical thinking
- Develops coordination and motor skills
- Enhances problem-solving and reasoning
Best of all...playing with TOOBEEZ is fun!"
"TOOBEEZ Aren't Just for Children
TOOBEEZ are a terrific tool for teaching team building, cooperation, project management and other skills in corporate settings.
Caregivers find that TOOBEEZ stimulate cognitive functioning, increase social interaction and encourage activity among senior citizens."
My kids LOVE Toobeez! We have played with them dozens of times since we got them in the mail. And yes, I do mean WE played with them. The whole family got involved, even grandma!
I really liked how building with Toobeez required my sons to use teamwork. My son Aiden has difficulty sharing and working with others so this was the pefect activity for him.
Toobeez are also pretty durable considering they had no trouble standing up to MY three kids' abuse. And there really are ENDLESS possibilities in what you can make. I love how creative my kids got with this toy. Toobeez also included TWO full books on ideas and way to use them in learning situations which would be perfect for teachers and other educators! Amazing.
I know we will get a TON of use out of our Toobeez!
