being MVP: Zometool & Giveaway!

Zometool & Giveaway!





I have professed my love for educational toys many times over on this blog.  My favorite subject in high school and college was science so I was excited to receive the Creator 1 from Zometool for review.  Zometool is a building toy that meshes art, science and play. 




This is the perfect starter kit for making all sorts of creations.  It includes 246 parts consisting of super short, short and medium struts (sticks) and 60 white nodes (balls).  These parts are all housed in a clear box with dividers for organized keeping.   



Kenzie loves to build so naturally she wanted to get to it.  Once we opened the box she started taking out the pieces to build with Hubs.  Although the kit came with ideas and instructions for models, we dug right in and just started placing struts into nodes. 

  


We found out early on that the struts need to be pulled out straight of the node.  Otherwise the end of the strut would break.  Somewhat delicate handling is required.  Ironically, it was I who broke the first strut.  Each length is identified by a different color and shape at the ends to coordinate with the shape it fits into the node.  Kenzie has a blast building and it really gets the family together for some learning and fun.  She also carries the box from room to room like a salesman asking what we want out of it.  It's the cutest thing. 


My creations are not as fancy as Hubs but I am working on it.   Sice he wanted to go into architecture in college, this kit was easy to work with for him.  Countless configurations can be made and hours of fun is the bonus.  Please note that the pieces are small and not intended for children under 3 years of age.  Kenzie will be three next month and since we supervise her play, she was fine with the pieces. 

 

Zometool's educational component with geometry will come into play once Kenzie is a little bit older.  Until then, she can enjoy it for what it is - using her imagination to build fantastic shapes.  There are various other kits and parts that one can keep adding to their collection for even larger pieces of work.  I am sure Kenzie will want many more pieces to add to her Creator kit. 


Buy It:  You can purchase Creator I for $59.
