A One-of-a-Kind Block Set

Blocks are pretty much a staple in every household with children.  Building sets ranging from Legos and Duplo to the old-school (and, as some will argue, for engineers in the making) Erector sets, to basic wood blocks teach children to use their imagination. The Sportos™ Build-a-Sport blocks from Rosie Hippo owner Kimberly Bloom seek to engage kids’ minds and bodies by building designs of their favorite sports as well as those that will be seen in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.

When Sportos™ arrived on our doorstep, I knew these would be a hit with my older son (they have different sets for different age groups, 3-5, 6-8 and 8+ which is wonderful). The blocks let children build designs of their favorite international sports with 71 blocks and 48 design cards made of sustainable rubber wood. A combination of straight and curved block pieces allow children to recreate the shapes made by athlete’s bodies engaged in different sports. Children can create an athlete dunking a basketball, craft a soccer player about to kick a goal, design a duo of volleyball players spiking and passing the ball and construct a skier crouching to take a jump.  And the best part? The blocks can be used to create your own sports figures or other creative designs.

    I like to try this one for my 10 year old son, He seems to be losing interests on his building block from Lego, although he has been playing it for a few years already, its time to give him something new
