Timberdoodle's review
Plus Plus
Simple shape. Endless possibilities!

Created in Denmark (known for minimalist designs with purposeful function), Plus Plus has an odd name, but a captivating design. Plus Plus comes in two sizes: the larger Midi, which is safer for younger children, ages 1 and up; and the smaller Mini, which is for builders aged 5 and older. New to families in the US, Plus Plus has gained a tremendous following over the last few years in Denmark and is so highly regarded in education that it is used in most Danish schools. Here’s why.

Hand your child a couple of pieces and he will intuitively begin to create. Plus Plus’ identical, simple shapes with their slight rubbery texture glide smoothly together with very little pressure. And they stay together! Plus Plus pieces grip without slipping and come apart without effort. Plus Plus encourages children to think creatively about color, design, and structure and is a painless way to develop fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Beginners will create flat patterns with Plus Plus but older children will want to try their hand at the more difficult 3-D structures.

Included with your purchase of Plus Plus is an exclusive Timberdoodle Fast Guide for Parents e-book. In it you will find quick tips for introducing Plus Plus to your children and many models to inspire creativity. Plus Plus includes 1200 pieces in ten different colors. Since each box of Plus Plus Small contains a unique assortment of all 10 colors, the exact quantity of each color varies. Each Plus Plus piece is made from plastic free of phthalates and PVC.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2016 First-Grade Curriculum Kit!

Plus Plus Small 1200pc Basic Color January 17, 2017
Reviewer: Kady, future ballerina princess nurse, age 5  
These are little plastic pieces that you fit together to make stuff. I like to make rainbows and robots with them. There are soooo many, like one hundred billion. They're nice feeling in your hands.

Stimulates imagination! December 2, 2016
Reviewer: Naomi R. from Macon, GA United States  
I did a custom curriculum kit and I'm glad I didn't remove this item.  My 6 year old loves these because he can create endlessly and they remind him of Minecraft.   I only gave 4 stars because he doesn't like using them for school and only enjoys them for unstructured free play.

My 7 year old loves March 27, 2015
Reviewer: Brandt W.  
My 7 year old loves Plus Plus. He has a pretty short attention span, but he builds with Plus Plus for hours! My 3 year old daughter and my husband love it too :)

Kids Love It! March 11, 2015
Reviewer: Tracy  
My 7 and 6 year old boys love Legos. But, this has become their new favorite item. They love the fact that the pieces , although are study, can be connected together to form a wheel. It didn't roll when attached to their car, but it did have tires. The price did deter me at first. But, after looking on Amazon and other sites, Timberdoodle had the best value for the amount of pieces. My 7 year old has an imagination, but also likes step by step instructions on how to create things. He was a little discouraged that it didn't have a book to follow. Since I ordered the curriculum, I did get samples of what others had created. He really liked that! I think the age recommendation is about right. My soon to be 3 year old (in July) is interested in this too. He is always finding the box and scattering them everywhere! I think he needs another 4 months to enjoy them the way they were intended. :-)

Worth Every Penny!!! March 9, 2015
Reviewer: Stephanie J.  
I didn't give plus plus much thought when I ordered the 1st grade core kit. Once we received it all 3 of my boys couldn't wait to get started building. At first I just let them build from their own ideas and then I provided the idea pages for them. They enjoyed it either way and have never played with this less than an hour at a time. I usually let them use it while I cook dinner and it keeps them very busy. Many times I have to make them put it away. It gives them endless possibilities to create. I was pleasantly surprised when they started using the plus plus to build things we discussed during our history lesson earlier in the day. I am so glad that I ordered the entire elite curriculum kit because I would have never bought this otherwise. I really didn't think it was that big of a deal until I saw it in action with my children. It has quickly become a family favorite.
