Guidecraft IO Blocks® 192 Piece Set Review

These IO Blocks are seriously so neat. My son who is two loves these. The IO Blocks really get your imagination rolling, you can make almost anything you set your mind to with these. The IO Blocks are recommend for ages 4 and up, however my two year old did not try to put these in his mouth. I believe with supervision, these are okay for children who are 2. My brothers who are 11 and 13 also had a blast with these building all sorts of crazy things! They loved how easily they could come up with something and make it. I love how focused this would make them and watching them concentrate to complete what they want. I think the IO Blocks would be a great addition to a classroom for children to learn more
The open ends on the blocks make it easy to build what you are trying too. These blocks stay nicely put unless you take them apart. I was shocked at how easily these attached and stayed put. These IO Blocks are very durable and well made. The blocks would interlock very nicely, we have had zero problems getting any pieces to lock together. I was highly impressed that every piece was perfect. 

I love how educational these are. Even for my two year old. We go over color and how the blocks fit into one another. He is learning STEM even at a young age with these.
