I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Kids now-a-days have the coolest toys and so many of them have a foundation in the S.T.E.A.M. mindset and I could not be more thrilled! I want to share with you the world of E-Blox, the construction line that's giving kids a charge of excitement for all the bells and whistles it can emit. The E is for electrical circuitry that brings colorful plated blocks to life with a whirl, flash or sound. With their Circuit Builder Kits kids will have hours of educational fun learning about electronics while developing analytical and problem-solving skills.
E-Blox launches nine stimulating kits for kids as young as 8-years-old to build while picking up the basics of electricity and circuitry. Everything you need to get started is in the box.
The Circuit Builder Line of 59, 115 or 120 projects, offers little engineers an easy way to get started in circuitry. This here is the Circuit Builder 120 set and is perfect for Big Sis who is 9 as she is able to read through the instructions and do it all by herself.
Each kit comes with an instruction booklet that gives you basic information on STEM facts and figures like current, voltage, electricity generation and battery recycling. Then let your kids build their own projects and as they build they will start to notice how all that information comes together in circuitry. Switches, wires and home appliances suddenly become interesting objects they can replicate on a smaller scale with their E-Blox kits.
The 120 in this kit title means the booklet includes 120 different projects that can be built. Discover how lights, alarms, motors, switches and more work. Build a real working FM radio and listen to your favorite station. Includes a set of plated parts to adapt your project with their pARTS line. Also compatible with other block sets already home in the toy box!
I have never seen Big Sis so excited for an educational toy. She loves that she is building using using real circuits and her favorites are the lights and sirens. Of course she likes the fan too....truly science in motion. I like to watch when she misses a step and messes up and she has to methodically backtrack to see where she made the mistake. Her face lights up when she figures it out and gets it right. Those problem-solving skills are what helps her really grow as a person.
This kit is really awesome and I hope to implement it into some of my Girl Scout lesson plans for my two troops next year. Lil Sis may only be 6 but she is hovering over Big Sis every time this toy gets brought out. There is something so satisfying about building something and then it "doing something" like light up when done correctly.
E- Blox toys are designed to stimulate a child's imagination and creativity, and teach every child to investigate our world through interactive storytelling, creative reasoning, and systematic building of objects that will provide endless hours of fun and learning.
E-Blox was launched in 2016 by Art Seymour with his sons James and Joseph after more than 90+ years of combined experience as entrepreneurs, inventors, and designers in the educational toys and wireless industries. E-Blox's founders are now leading the way to a whole new generation of educational toys that give children of all ages the building blocks of a STREAM education through the joy of play and discovery. Kids today are surrounded by technology and these kids need to know how it all works and it all starts with the basic components of circuitry.
