I’m a huge fan of quality educational toys, so I was thrilled when Bionic Blox (now called Brackitz) reached out to see if I was interested in a review! They sent us their wonderful Architect kit, and all of my kids are smitten with this fantastic STEM construction toy! I love this toy, too – enough to happily sit on the floor and build my own things alongside them!
A Great New Construction Toy for Kids
The brilliance of Bionic Blox (now rebranded as Brackitz ) is that the concept behind this US-made toy is simple: star connectors link up with wooden blocks. Bionic Blox star connectors also work with (affiliate links) KEVA Planks and Citiblocs if you have those. You can buy a set of just star connectors if you don’t need the blocks! The star connectors hold the planks firmly so that you can pick your creation up and move it around without worrying about it breaking. There are many different ways to insert a plank into a star – it doesn’t have to link up exactly to hold, so you have an infinite number of angles to choose from! Each star has a hollow, round center that you can place a pencil or wooden dowel through for further flexibility! Here you can see a few things we made during our first building session:
What do you think your kids will make with these? What will you make?
