3D Savanna in Pyjamas Set
Watch a video of Bloco assembly here!

An exciting new set for younger students!
This set includes a step-by-step instruction sheet for building a Cheetah, Zebra, Giraffe, and Snake. With lots of interesting textures, patterns, and bright colors, these "pyjama wearing" animals are guaranteed to be very popular with both boys and girls. The set also includes instructions to build smaller and less complicated animals making it an ideal starter set.


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

    Nice finished product January 16, 2013
    Reviewer: Timberdoodle fan in Washington  
    This is definitely a parent-child project. Do not buy this if you are looking for something to keep your child busy while you teach the other kids. That being said, I like working with my kids. If a project is too challenging for a preschooler to complete on their own, than it is probably stretching their ablilities. The step by step directions help your child understand sequencing. It is a helpful tool for building the concept of "parts to a whole". Yes, it is a little difficult to fit the pieces together. I find that a drawback. However, perseverance is the one character quality iin which my preschoolers are most deficient.

    Too Difficult for This Age January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: The Desert Mom  
    This project kit is too difficult for a pre-K student to even help put together. The pieces are awkward and do not stay together well. Once each piece is made, there is little use other than to look at them or take them apart. They cannot be played with or moved much as pieces will fall off.

    Advanced Building Tool August 30, 2012
    Reviewer: Homeschooling With Two  
    I got this as a gift as part of the core curriculum as it was recommended for Pre-K 3-5 but as an adult I have trouble getting the pieces fitted together for the animals listed. My 9 year old enjoys the set but it's beyond the grasp of a preschooler unless you section out 10 or so random pieces and have them fit it together but i can think of a lot of other small motor skill 3-D model development toys that are easier to use.

    A Little Hard for Little Hands May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: Ambertackles  
    I have a 6 year old and a 4 year old that enjoyed playing with their Bloco set for a time but get frustrated when the pieces don't stay together. They are often asking me to help them build the animals and then asking me to help them stay together. They had more fun building "crazy" creatures than following the instructions before they got tired of it. We would like to try a different set but the prices is a bit much for the limited use we got out of this set. Maybe when they are older we will try these again.

    Fun, but falls apart easily May 31, 2012
    Reviewer: EeyoreMom  
    We enjoyed doing this, and I stress we. My kids are 4 and 6, advanced for their age. but this was definitely a team project. My 6 year old was able to do most of it herself, but she did have some issues with getting some of the smaller pieces apart before fitting them together. The kids loved them once they were put together, but then they started falling apart. I finally got tired of fixing them, and just chunked them. I think this has value as a great construction toy, but I just wish that the animals stayed together better after construction. They have another set, and instead of focusing on getting the animals just right, I've let them just have the pieces and put together some crazy animals. They've had more fun this way, and they don't worry about it quite so much when an animal falls apart as it is just an excuse to build another crazy creature.
