Timberdoodle's review
 
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. Block Builders, using six sturdy plastic blocks that open, close, flip, and stack, is a new dynamic program for introducing that necessary training.

50 Cards!
With Block Builders' 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 Block Builders 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 Block Builders' card also contains interesting facts about famous design styles, architectural wonders, quotes by legendary architects, and more. For children five and older.

    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...."
