Use Your Imagination With CitiBlocs Review And Giveaway

One of my favorite things about Evan getting older is being able to witness his imagination. It is amazing how young children can start having these elaborate imaginations and too often they are wasted because they don't use the right tools to express them. Children are watching more and more television and not utilizing their skills.

Photobucket

CitiBlocs is dedicated to help children capture their imaginations. CitiBlocs are a unique wooden construction toy that can be used to build just about anything. They are made from Grade A New Zealand Radiata Pine and each block is exactly the same size. Simply use your imagination and stack to make anything you can think of! CitiBlocs just won an IPMA 2009 Outstanding Products Award and an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award.

CitiBlocs sent us their 54 Piece Color Wooden Building Bloc Set for Evan.
Photobucket

Even though they're meant for children 3 years and older, he has had a blast with these blocks. He is sitting and playing with the blocks right now. He isn't coordinated enough to use them like they're intended, but I have observed him using so many different skills with these blocks.
Photobucket

The blocks are red and blue and Evan kept sorting them out according to color. Over the past few weeks he has gotten great at stacking them up and I've seen his coordination improve. He usually puts the red ones going one way and the blue ones going the other. He may not be building cars or animals yet, but he can build his own version of a house.
Photobucket

The best things about these blocks is that he can continue to grow with them. He will continue to develop his fine motor skills as he works with this set. He'll be able to use his imagination and build all sorts of amazing things for years to come. Reasoning, problem solving, cause and effect, engineering and improvising are all part of the building block experience. Here is an example of what can be built with these blocks.
Photobucket

CitiBlocs has several other sets that are available so that we can continue to grow our collection. These blocks give us something else that we can do as a family. Not only will we be having fun, but we'll also be helping Evan improve many valuable skills.

My niece may be a bit young for these, but I would love to win her a set just the same! (Her mom will enjoy them, too--she has always been a fan of blocks.) I've told my husband often enough that the toys I want our kids to play with are blocks and dolls and other basic, educational-but-fun toys (easier said than done, eh?).

I learned that Citiblocks markets not only to families, but also to schools (K-12, not just elementary schools) and museums, which I think it rather brilliant.

I'd choose the color set for my niece in North Carolina, who I have yet to meet.

Something from the website I learned was that they have a special package for museum displays. How neat! Of the two sets, I would probably get the set that fit my budget most...which these days would probably be the least expensive. I love that it's easy to add to the set and I love that there is a set with 1000 pieces.

I love this information posted on their website:

"CITIBLOCS are an ideal educational toy for home, playgroups, teachers, principals, professors and parents. Reasoning, problem solving, cause and effect, engineering and improvising are all part of the building block experience."

My nearly 5 year old loves building and my husband and I say he's going to be an engineer so these blocks definitely appeal to us for him to have! I like the 52 piece set.

I like that building with Citiblocs requires no glue, clips, snaps or connectors to keep the blocks together: just gravity and balance.

I would choose the 54 piece colored set. We already have plain wooden blocks, I think the kids would enjoy the color to make it seem more fun like playing with Legos.

Pretty neat that the blocks are made from "Grade A New Zealand Radiata Pine".

I checked on how the blocks were colored - "Citiblocs uses certified water based colors to highlight the natural toned pine planks. The blocks are "stained" as the pine naturally absorbs the water based colors."

Still think I would prefer the 52 pc wooden Bloc set that isn't stained.
