Even though I have girls, it doesn’t mean that they don’t like building things, because they do! If my husband asked them to build a toy plane, they’d do it. Not only do they enjoy the challenge, but they enjoy doing things with daddy. I’ve told you about nanoblock® before – the world’s smallest building block construction system from The Ohio Art Company and now you can purchase them at Target, one of my favorite stores to shop at!
nanoblock® has some cool sets too. I love the ‘Sites-to-See’ sets where kids can build places from all over the world including the Taj Mahal, Big Ben, Crysler Building and more. We received the Kaminarimon (in Japan) and the girls are excited to build it with dad. nanoblock® are challenging because they are so small so he always helps them.
The mini sets include lots of pets and animals like a blue parakeet, rabbit, polar bear and our favorite dog – a terrier! We received the terrier and the girls love it! It’s so tiny and cute all at the same time.
You definitely need patience when putting together nanoblocks because the pieces are so tiny. And they can be challenging for some kids. The first time my oldest put one of these together, she was very frustrated, as was my husband because his fingers are bigger than hers. But once she completed it, she loved the outcome of it and now has more patience. I told her that it’s not all about getting it done, its the fun of putting it together, so if it takes a while, that’s okay.
