Timberdoodle's review
Bloco Lizards and Chameleons Set: A chameleon, frilled lizard, gecko, flying dragon, and a basilisk are just some of the amazing reptiles you can make with the 144 foam pieces, thirty-eight plastic connectors, ten plastic caps, and an instruction sheet.

About Bloco construction sets:
It's not just me, research concludes that children learn a lot by designing and building things. Many skills are rooted in the act of construction: creation, examination, and problem solving are but a few. Construction will encourage your child to separate complicated tasks into manageable bites. The nature of building complex models encourages children to think about multiple steps of assembly at the same time, particularly when working with gears or fussy pieces.

Construction Should be a Required Curriculum
Based on my own engineering background/bias, I believe that construction is one of the most valuable educational processes available, and that both learning to build and learning by what has been built should be a part of every family's curriculum.

Creation-Based Construction
It may seem as though some children have zero interest in building and creating. Possibly it is because most construction kits emphasize vehicles, machines, and other man-made innovations. If your child’s inclinations are more creation-based, if he would rather build a realistic animal or a life-like insect, consider Bloco with its uniquely-shaped, high-density foam and specialized plastic connectors that both link and rotate pieces.

Flat Models and Extraordinary 3-D Animals
This one-of-a-kind construction kit allows your child to build simple, flat models and extraordinary, 3-D animals. Each set comes with detailed illustrated designs, and sets can be combined to allow the creation of even more interesting creatures.

Many Sets Make an Assortment of Creatures
Colorful and appealing when completed, these are not simple slap-together kits. Our experience is that younger children, unless highly motivated, are initially going to find some of the more complex models "impossible." Instead of becoming irritated, rejoice; it means that by the time your child completes the projects he will have learned something and you will have gotten your money’s worth.

Combine Sets to Create Even More
Many Bloco sets make an assortment of creatures, from chameleons to wildcats to zebras, each one worthy of display. All sets are fully compatible.

These are fun October 15, 2010
Reviewer: Amy from Denton, TX United States  
My 6 and 7 year old boys like playing with these, but they aren't their favorite building toys. The sets are really cute, and the instructions aren't hard to follow, but sometimes it can be difficult for little hands to put things together quite the right way. And while creativity is encouraged in the directions, anything that comes with enough stuff to make certain models won't have all the pieces you need to really unleash your creativity. If money were tight, I'd go with more basic construction items, like Legos, Wedgits, and even Lincoln Logs.
