Have a little genius or out-of-the-box thinker on your holiday list this year? You might want to take a peek at a new toy, Zometool, for kids ages 6 to 16 – and even some adults! Zometool puts the discovery back in toys. With creative sets such as the Creator 1 ($59), Ice Crystals & Stars ($25), The Buckyball ($29) and more, your child won’t know what hit them when they unleash their creativity, solo or with a friend, enjoying the discovery of building within each Zometool set.
Each of my kids is at a different develop mental level, so I wanted to find a set that they could all get involved with. The Creator 1 set includes everything they need to spark the imagination and enjoy hours of creative building fun - 246 parts including 186 struts, 60 nodes neatly packed in a sturdy carrying case.
My older boys could follow the step by step instruction and my younger children could enjoy some simple free play. Building sets are some of my favorite toys. I love to observe my children in that creative thought process and I love seeing what my daughter comes up with. Though it may not always look like what she is claiming it to be, that’s OK, because I know her imagination is being stimulated. I’m a huge fan of technology, but, sometimes it’s nice to get back to the creative basics I spent so many hours with as a child.
Apparently I’m not the only person who appreciates the fun and quality Zometool puts forth, as they were noticed this year by several prestigious award organizations. Dr. Toy named Creator 3 and Ice Crystals & Stars her 2012 Best Picks Winners. Creative Child Awards gave Creator 1 its 2012 Top Toy of the Year Award in the Build Construction Category and 2012 Kids Product of the Year Award in the Kids Educational Product Category. And since the kits are made in Colorado, they were inducted into the Made in the USA Hall of Fame by the Made in the USA Foundation!
Creator1 has already provided my children hours of engagement and once they have master the first skill level we can move on to more challenging Creator Levels like Advanced Math Creator 4!
