Build Your Child’s Imagination with Toobeez

One of our hot holiday toy picks for 2008, TOOBEEZ are a toy the whole family will enjoy.

TOOBEEZ can best be described as giant Tinker Toys. The TOOBEEZ building system consists of different sized tubes and connecting spheres.

Construction is easy. Just insert either end of the tube into one of the sphere’s 10 keyholes and twist the tube’s rotating end to “lock” it in place.

TOOBEEZ encourage creative open-ended play. While TOOBEEZ come with instructions for building dozens of fun structures, the only limit is your imagination. Your kids (ages 4+) will learn spatial relations as well as cooperation as they work together to build forts, castles, playhouses, puppet theatres, obstacle courses, spaceships, airplanes, helicopters, dinosaurs, tents,  lemonade stands, boats, submarines and more!

But design and construction is only half the fun. As parents know, there are few toys as exciting to young children as large boxes, which can transform in a child’s mind into planes, trains, automobiles and more. Your children’s TOOBEEZ creations will inspire imaginative play, and they are a lot more durable than a cardboard box!

TOOBEEZ can grow with your child. Younger children might need help figuring out how to build more complex designs, but older children will enjoy the challenge of trying to replicate a design or construct something original. And adults will be tempted to play with them too.

TOOBEEZ educational value has been recognized. Teachers use TOOBEEZ to explain math concepts and to reinforce language arts lessons. (Activity books are available.) Therapists use them to help children with learning disabilities. And companies use them for teambuilding activities.

  37. In that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking. Indeed, bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs but also build social relations with their readers and other bloggers.

  38. Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries; yet still others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic.
