Thanks to KidStuff Pr and BENDASTIX for sponsoring this post and giveaway for this creative building blocks set for children. I was not compensated for this review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
How do you stop the summer boredom in your house? Or need to break up the boredom in the car or on a long plane ride? Do your kids love building blocks for creative play or do they just like to build sets with the instructions? DO they prefer crafts over building blocks? I thought I would introduce you all to a new way to break up the boredom or rainy day activity. I would categorize it as a both a craft kit for girls or a building set for boys.
These are not your typical building block sets. You are not going to find a box of different color blocks that only build in one direction. I want to introduce you to what the folks at Fibre-Craft have just released and their new creation that’s ½ arts & crafts and ½ construction toy, but 100% fun: BENDASTIX™
“With BENDASTIX™, soft and squishy craft pieces replace rigid cardboard or wood that can bend, mold and shape (but never ever break). Fibre-Craft will offer these craft pieces in enticing kits that will allow little ones to build cars, flowers, and kooky glasses – anything the imagination can dream up! The pieces are patterned with zig-zags, polka dots and other crazy patterns to give each creation a one-of-a-kind pop art look”
*The only piece that did break during our trial were the circular pieces. I personally did not see it happen so I am not sure if they were pulled too hard.
These unique and creative crafting/reusable building sets are designed for children ages 6 and up, Fibre-Craft’s BENDASTIX™ will make its debut with eight arts & crafts kits priced affordably from $6.99 to $19.99 starting in July 2013. These are so new the website is just went live this month. You can buy these sets on-line or search their website www.getbendastix.com to find retailers now carrying them.
At the beach the three girls were very interested in this kit. It provided a great break from the sun and some downtime from a very active day. The girl ages were 6,9 and 11.
