Toobeez Building Toys

My kids love Legos. We spend probably 85% of our time indoors building legos. So when a friend recommended these toys I knew I had to check them out. Toobeez are like oversized K’nex toys. Like legos they teaching critical thinking, spatial understanding, nurture creativity, and working together.

Toobeez come in sets of 50 or 150. They feature long, medium, and small poles that can be connected with ball joints. You can also put sheets, or cloth coverings on them (each set comes with a few) to create tents, forts, etc.

We purchased one set and we were gifted another set. Since then m,y kids have been in building mode for days. we have already perfected the fort, and we have fallen in love with the airplane. Buy daughter who is currently Moana obsessed even found a way to create a sailboat. The building possibilities are endless. Kids can create and build all day long. It is fairly simple to begin, and the more you do it the adept you get at putting the pieces together and taking them apart.

Check out Toobeez for a fun building alternative, and be sure to see some of the interesting building ideas. You can look them up on Pinterest for dozens of building ideas.

Do your boys love legos? If so come really close, be very quiet, and don’t let anyone see your computer screen for the next few moments.

If you need some new ideas for gifting fun holiday items this season, look no further. We have found lego Christmas ornaments. Your boys will love building their own Christmas decorations and hanging them from the tree.

Your boys will love interacting with their new toy/Christmas decoration, and it will be fun for the whole family. The incredibly cool part is once the holidays are over you can disassemble it and pack it away for next year. Unlike most ornaments that need to be protected while packed away this will be perfectly safe. And unlike most gingerbread houses which need to be eaten or thrown away. At the end of the holiday this one can be kept and enjoyed for years to come!

Check out Chris McVeigh and his incredibly cool building kits now. It is the gift that will build memories for years.

Lego Dinosaurs: How to Create Dinos

Here at The Boy’s Store we love to share some of our favorite blogs. Over the years we have shared blogs written by moms, dads, grandparents, and even some of our readers. One of our favorite blogs is written by fellow mommy blogger Sarah at Frugal Fun 4 Boys. Sarah is the mom of four very busy boys, and one girl. Sarah is so incredibly talented when it comes to keeping her boys busy with fun activities. That is why we love sharing her secrets. When you find something that works, you keep doing it!

This month we are excited to share Sarah’s dinosaur lego tutorial. Since so many of our little boys love dinosaurs we wanted to share this incredibly easy-to-follow tutorial to make dinosaurs from any lego set. Sometimes with kids, especially thanks to tv commercials, you end up buying so many different toys and trysts. Which can get very expensive.The fun of legos is you don’t always have to buy a special set, just use your imagination and get creative.
