There’s something about watching my kids being creative that brings me such joy. I love toys that are hands-on and driven by PLAY – pure “kid power.” The Action-Stackers™ Big Builder Set from Play Monster was a hit from the start and a welcome addition to our collection of toys and educational products.
I loved watching my kids discover the way the brightly colored pieces worked – watching them piece them together, figuring out the way they moved and twisted. As they played, I could see new discoveries being made and ideas constantly being formed.
The set comes with 5 Tall-Stackers Pegs, 6 Wheels, 5 Hexagon Connectors, 30 Square Connectors, 8 Crepe Rubber Tower Mats, Crepe Rubber Pegboard, Activity Guide. (As an added bonus – the set is large enough for two children to share without fighting over pieces!) Kids can build multi-directionally and in varied ways. While the set does come with a guide that provides several building suggestions, there is certainly no “one way” to play with this product. Kids are only limited by their imagination!
My kids (6 and 5) were immediately drawn to this building set. They couldn’t wait to start building, creating, and designing. As they played, you could see the way their growing minds were activated by this set. This set is hands-on, versatile, and fueled by imagination.
But don’t just take it from me. Here’s what my kids had to say:
“I love that you can build castles, cars, tables & chairs, and all kinds of stuff.” ~ Preschool Girl
“I love that it has wheels, and you can build all the stuff you want.” ~ Kindergarten Boy
The building combinations are virtually endless – allowing kids to create something new every time they play. Parents will love that the set encourages creativity and “outside the box” thinking – as children will see the pieces as possibilities. One afternoon they’ll build a vehicle, and the next day they’ll create an amusement park ride.
You can find the Action-Stackers™ Big Builder Set (and lots of other fantastic toys) on the Play Monster Website. The set retails for $39.99, and is for kids ages 3+. The set is durable, kid-friendly, and an easy way to introduce young children to STEM activities.
