Timberdoodle's Review
Bloco Animalia Zebra, Giraffe, & Elephant
Is it true no two zebras have the same stripe pattern? How tall are newborn baby giraffes? Why do African elephants have such big ears?

Building animals from the Bloco Animalia Collection is also an opportunity to learn more about them, thanks to the information sheet included in the box containing amazing facts on each one.

An exciting African safari awaits you. Have fun putting it together!

About Bloco construction sets:
It's not just me; research concludes that children learn a lot by designing and building things. Many skills are rooted in the act of construction: creation, examination, and problem solving are but a few. Construction will encourage your child to separate complicated tasks into manageable bites. The nature of building complex models encourages children to think about multiple steps of assembly at the same time, particularly when working with gears or fussy pieces. Based on my own engineering background/bias, I believe that construction is one of the most valuable educational processes available and that both learning to build and learning by what has been built should be a part of every family's curriculum.

High-Interest and Appeal
But some children have zero interest in building and creating. Possibly it is because most construction kits emphasize vehicles, machines, and other man-made innovations. If your child's inclinations are more creation-based, if he would rather build a realistic animal or a lifelike fish, consider Bloco with its uniquely-shaped, high-density foam and specialized plastic connectors that both link and rotate pieces.

Builds Easy, Flat Models and Complex 3-D Animals
This one-of-a-kind construction kit allows your child to build simple, flat models and extraordinary 3-D animals like lizards and lions. Each set comes with detailed illustrated designs, and sets can be combined to allow the creation of even more interesting creatures. Colorful and appealing when completed, these are not simple slap-together kits. Our experience is that younger children, unless highly motivated, are initially going to find some of the more complex models "impossible." Instead of becoming irritated, rejoice; it means that by the time your child completes the projects he will have learned something and you will have gotten your money's worth. Each Bloco set makes an assortment of creatures, from sharks to eagles to zebra, each one worthy of display. All sets are fully compatible. Suitable for ages five to ten.
