Fisher Price TRIO review

Pin It My sons absolutely adore building toys but my younger son (age 5) sometimes has difficulty with smaller pieces and gets frustrated when he can't get things to work they way he wants them to. We were sent a TRIO Basic Building Set and all three of my children (7, 5, 2) were super excited to try it out.



The Basic Building Set : Easy building for 3 - 5 years
Is your child showing interest in building structures with blocks? TRIO™ Basic Building System sets are a great way to develop this interest as children refine their eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills. These sets also help kids move beyond imitating what others do during imaginary play, and progress to the stage where they use their imaginations to translate familiar places and activities into enriched, creative play. Step-by-step instructions guide them on ways to build and rebuild these sets.
Both boys have had a LOT of fun with TRIO. Owen (5 year old) has no trouble building with TRIO which means all fun and no frustration for him! They have spent hours playing with TRIO since it arrived a couple weeks ago. They have built everything from buildings to dinosaurs and even a gun or two (of course).

Aiden (age 7 and our resident engineer) has spent hours making every single design from the instruction booklet... we have not had to help at all! He was able to follow the simple instructions no problem all on his own.

TRIO is very easy to use- even my 2 year old daughter Olivia was able to have fun playing and building with TRIO. The bricks make a clicking sound when they snap together and are easy to pull apart as well.



TRIO is incredibly sturdy and no matter how many times it was dropped or stepped on it stayed perfectly intact.


TRIO has 3 "grow-with-me" building levels which all work together...


City System : Easy building for 4 – 7 years
In this action-packed city, kids can build practically anything and create a place where they can make anything happen! Just snap together the bricks, sticks and panels, following the instructions or creating unique designs. Then kids start imagining "What if...?" and coming up with amazing adventures!



Castle System: Easy building for 5 – 9 years
These TRIO™ building sets take on a medieval, fantasy theme, adding imaginative role-play to the building fun. Imaginative role-play prepares children not only for understanding what happens in a story, but for creating their own. When kids use these sets and their own creativity to transform ideas into make-believe stories of increasing complexity, just imagine the adventures!
I received this Fisher-Price product free of charge as part of a product review program through MomSelect.
