I love construction toys. There is nothing better to encourage creativity and STEM learning than toys that allow kids to be creative and make things. The Smarty Parts set is one of the best I have ever seen!
First of all, the set is beautiful. You can see just from the packaging that there was care and thought put into this toy. Made from durable blocks, plastic connector pieces and decorative pieces this set comes with everything you need to set your kids imaginations into full gear!
I have two girls age eight and four and both of them got into this toy from the second the box was opened. They first went through the included construction booklet to make all of the suggested creations. After that, when they had a feel for how the set worked, they were off to the races making all sorts of inventions of their own.
How much did my kids like the Smarty Parts set? Well, in this age of electronics they played with this toy from afternoon to dinnertime and then after dinner until bedtime. There were no requests for tablets or tv, just creative play punctuated by them running to us with their latest and greatest inventions.
When playtime was over, everything fit back neatly into the very sturdy box that conveniently had all of the parts and quantities listed so that no parts were lost.
I absolutely love the Smarty Parts set. This toy is going to become a staple on my list of kid gifts to buy for friends and family. A well-made toy that encourages your child to use their imagination and keeps them occupied for long spans of time? That’s a gift for everyone!
