There is no question, kids love to build, create, and engineer. As kids build with blocks and create marble runs and tracks, they learn to use their mind and hands to problem-solve. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. But picking up those pieces and trying again is what makes children resilient. Because little stuff becomes big stuff, one block at a time. Patience, grit, imagination, trust, confidence…these are just some of the skills that open up when your child creates giant structures and elaborate worlds. Our collection of toys for kids who love to build, design, and engineer is towering and each one makes a show-stopping gift to encourage creativity and the wild rumpus of open-ended play!
