With Christmas on its way, you’re trying to decide what to buy your little engineer. I’ve got the perfect list of building and construction toys! These toys are sure to satisfy your little builder for hours on end! Everything from simple blocks to complex marble runs have been included below. I can’t wait to show them to you!
For kids with busy minds, it’s can be easy for them to get bored or feel under stimulated. They need things to help them explore and learn. These toys are sure to satisfy them as they get to build all kinds of things! Building toys are some of my kids favorites and I love to see how creative they get with it and what kinds of things they create. Sometimes we even do it as a family and it’s so much fun!
One of my favorite things about giving building and constructions toys as gifts is that they are perfect for all ages and one of those toys that never goes out of style. As a child grows blocks and other manipulatives are an extremely easy toy to expand their collection with unlike fad toys.
Our family tradition is to annually add to our Magformer collection. These are by far one of my all time favorite toys out there. When it comes to adding to our collections I have had a bit of difficulty finding some of these items in the store within our budget. We live in a smaller city and outside of high priced toy stores I just haven’t had much luck. Thankfully we have an Amazon Prime account which gives us free 2 day shipping and we were able to find all of our favorites there.
