Architecto Book Only
Requires Equilibrio blocks - not included!
Architecto: Translate 2-D into 3-D
In this volume your child uses the same blocks used with Equilibrio to construct one of 50 illustrated three-dimensional structures. For each model, the type and number of blocks required are indicated at the bottom of the page. There are six levels of difficulty, and your child will find that the most grueling level requires fairly advanced logical analysis and spatial perception. Thankfully answers are included. For ages 7+.
About The Equilibrio Series
The scope and sequence of this program is phenomenal. Using just 18 blocks, your children will experiment with construction, geometry, logical analysis, perspectives, design, and spatial logic. Each spiral-bound book is systematic in its presentation, with multiple levels and escalating complexities. Spatial proficiencies are vital for everyone, but today's sedentary children often lack a natural way to develop this ability. These three books and set of blocks provide an enjoyable and successful approach to making sure your child acquires these essential skills. Using just 18 blocks, your children will experiment with construction, geometry, logical analysis, perspective, design, and spatial logic.

My 9-year-old son loves this book. We already had the equilibrio set, so this book was a great addition to that! He loves the challenges and there are enough to keep him busy for a while. I use this as an activity when I need to do laundry or dishes or school with my younger son. I highly recommend!
We really enjoy the Arhitecto book, which is to be used with the Equilibrio blocks. The book includes many puzzles in various degrees of dificulty, so it can span different ages. The little ones can try their hand at the easier ones, and they get hard enough that I have not yet been able to do them all. This would especially be good for boys wanting to develop their hands on skills. It builds thinking and reasoning skills and develops hand/eye coordination.
My eight-year old son LOVES Architecto!!! Architecto is an excellent book that helps to build spatial logic and reasoning. In Architecto, using the blocks from the Equilibrio set, the object is to build a three-dimensional model with the blocks pictured on the page. Architecto includes 50 models to be constructed with increasing difficulty throughout the book. Thankfully the solutions are included in the back of the book. The spiral binding of Architecto is nice for laying the book flat and the pages are very thick. The cover is the same thickness as the internal pages in the book, though. Architecto is a great value and my son highly recommends this game!
