You hear the telltale “woosh” from your child...
...that lets you know they’re playing with something that is “flying.” They rush around the corner and you see it’s a fighter jet, snapped together from their favorite building block toy, Click-A-Brick.
The jet lands and the “woosh” turns to a “vroom,” as they grab the tank and it rumbles off into battle. Then, after a flurry of clicking, your child unveils the ultimate creation for defending freedom and fun … the Army Defenders battle bot.
“Oooh, what’s your robot’s name?” you ask.
“Hmm,” your child scrunches up their face with concentration, their tongue ever-so-slightly peeking out of their mouth. “I dunno. What do you think its name should be?”
What looks like a simple, plastic block is the key to unlocking your child’s imagination, helping them create vivid worlds and keeping them busy for hours. So, you get to choose whether you want to sit back and watch them play, enjoy the quiet time to yourself or get right in there and build along with them.
But, as you and your child play with Click-A-Brick, beyond just sparking their imagination, they’ll be learning.
While they snap together and pull apart Click-A-Bricks, your child will be:
- learning hand-eye coordination, which will help them with building complex designs later in life;
- learning spatial awareness, which develops thinking skills that will help your child solve problems and feel more confident in the classroom;
- learning how to follow instructions, which will help prepare them for school and help them to concentrate on tasks while in school, and
- developing their fine motor skills, which is important for children for growing up active and healthy.
Learning these skills will help children later in life during school, giving them a head start on the all-important STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills they’ll need during their education.
Don’t worry if those all sound like complex ideas, your child won’t even know they’re learning these skills. They’ll be too busy playing and having a blast connecting, building, snapping and disassembling the endless creations they make.
Click-A-Bricks are also safe, so you don’t have to worry about your children (aged 4 and up) playing with them. They are:
- approximately 1 inch by 1 inch in size - large enough to not pose a choking hazard, and
- made with non-toxic plastic - children are completely safe while playing with Click-A-Brick.
They’re colorful enough to keep children’s attention and they build in all directions (even diagonally), which means they keep kids engaged for hours. And, after your child is done assembling their creation, Click-A-Brick is sturdy enough that they can play with their creation the same as they would with a pre-assembled toy.
