Construction and Spatial Logic
Spatial proficiency, especially the ability to correctly duplicate a model, is a vital skill that can only be grasped by practice.
, using six sturdy plastic blocks that open, close, flip, and stack, is a new dynamic program for introducing that necessary training.
fifty challenge cards and three levels of difficulty, your young builder will be asked to recreate the silhouetted structure on the front of the card using only the number of indicated blocks. As he works through the
cards, the exercises become increasingly difficult, with the most complicated level requiring fairly advanced logical analysis and spatial perception. Thankfully, exploded view answers are included on the back of the cards. Each
card also contains interesting facts about famous design styles, architectural wonders, quotes by legendary architects, and more. For children five and older.
Each Block Builders card contains fascinating facts! Famous design styles, architectural wonders, architecture terms, even quotes by legendary architects. Examples:
Turret: a small tower, usually starting at some distance from the ground, attached to a building such as a castle or fortress.

Baroque: A style that flourished in the 17th & 18th centuries, characterized by exuberant decoration, curvaceous forms, and grand scale.

Reviews from Timberdoodle's Blogger Review Team:
BLOCK BUILDERS ARCHITECTURE REVIEW
"...All of the parts are sturdy and will be around for a long time even in our household of six kids...Caleb (age 7) is sitting on the table with his big brother playing with Block Builders Architecture 3 as I type and he keeps saying “I did it Mommy!” and “Mom, Look at this!” Of course, as he plays he is learning to problem solve, think spatially, and balance objects with care. Fat Brain Toys always teach through play and that is a concept I love...."
