Light Stax 36 piece Light-up Building Blocks
(Light Stax $39.99) Platinum Award
All the plastic bricks are the same square size, though in many colors. They come with a base to build upward and outward on. Build patterns, designs or figures. Once you have them in place throw the switch on the base and enjoy a light show. Builders can give them a steady light with a 15 minute automatic off or for more fun turn on the flashing mode or try the fade out. Makes an original short-term bedside lamp or timer for lights out. Marked for all ages over 3 but probably a better choice for 5-8.
Ages: Preschoolers, Early School
