Guidecraft Grippies Builders - 30 Piece Playset

July 8, 2016

 

 

(Guidecraft $47.99) 

 

Even the younger builder can explore magnetic attraction with this set of pastel colored sensory Grippies and magnetic balls. The Grippies come in two lengths, four colors, and interesting textures. Combined with the big white magnetic balls, these are an open-ended building material for older toddlers and young preschoolers. A 20-piece set is also available ($32.99) Marked 18 months and up. We think this will be of more interest to slightly older kids and continue to be used by preschoolers in more complex ways.

 

SNAP: The soft spongy covering on the rods make this an easier-to-grasp toy. Grippie Games: Use these for building fun or sort the pieces by size and sort then again by color. Sort them by textures looking at them and then with eyes closed. How long a train of blue can you make? How about orange? Play a game make patterns: You start with blue, green, blue, green, blue....what comes next? Make other patterns with two colors and then gradually do three color patterns.

 

Ages: Toddlers, Preschoolers
