Round Up Your Robots
With Bloco's newest construction toy set, Bloco Robot Invasion, your child can assemble an army of kooky or intimidating robots by following the child-friendly instructions. Or he could invent his own cyborg with Robot Invasion's amazingly versatile high-density foam pieces and plastic connectors. Now your family is ready for an invasion of the intergalactic sort!

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 fish, 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, three-dimensional animals. Each set comes with detailed illustrated designs, and sets can be combined to allow the creation of even more interesting creatures.

Challenging and Educational
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 sharks to wildcats to zebras, each one worthy of display. All sets are fully compatible.

too many pieces December 31, 2013
Reviewer: Sabrina B.  
It has too many small pieces for a little child to lose. My son is three and a half, and he can not play it alone. I definately think it would be better for an older child.

Exceeded my expectations November 3, 2013
Reviewer: Army W.  
I bought this for my son's 5th birthday. He loved it! I loved it because not only were we spending quality time together he was learning without even knowing it. He was counting, matching, following directions, toning fine motor skills and concentration skills. This set provided opportunities for social-emotional play and working together. It's challenging enough for our 5 year old and easy enough for our 2 year old. He enjoys putting pieces together and making his own creations. The pieces are vibrant in color and soft but sturdy. This was the first Bloco set I purchased and I will be purchasing different sets. I'm very pleased.

Amazingly Quality September 24, 2013
Reviewer: Pepandcutsmom  
WE got this as a gift and couldn't be happier. I knew my boys would love it but I was surprised by the quality. The pieces are spongey but stay together amazingly well. When we opened the box my boys ages 4 and 8, played with it for 2 hours. Never has that happened!

How can you go wrong with robots! August 15, 2013
Reviewer: blessed4xover  
We got the Bloco Savannah in Pyjamas set with our Pre_K Core curriculum last year, and our then 4 year old loved it. He loves robots, and loves to build things, so this was the perfect set for him. At this point, he can identify the number of a specific part needed, and match the shape to the illustrated instructions. He is building by himself with only verbal guidance from me, and it is just the right level for him: challenging and fun without being frustrating. The robot designs are creative, interesting, and entertaining! My son and I love doing these together. We will definitely order more Bloco sets, and probably give them as Christmas gifts to little friends!
