I was excited to receive a product geared toward the two-year-old age group. My youngest is nearly two, and it seems that products for his age level seem to be scarce. The box is bright, sturdy, and makes the toy seem fun and exciting. It's also a perfect size to store the toy for later use. The product comes with 15 pieces, including a main body piece, used for each of the three vehicles, wheels, a cute little character, and other pieces that fit together differently depending on the vehicle built. The vehicles each use between 8-10 of the pieces to construct, which is a good number; it's not too many to be overwhelming, but enough to take the littlest builders a little time to put together. The plastic is brightly colored and sturdy, and will withstand even the toughest kid! It truly is a first building toy. Tiny two year old hands don't usually have the manual dexterity for items such as a wrench or screwdriver, and neither of those tools is necessary to build these toys. My youngest needs help to show him where to put the pieces, but he can attach (most of) them without help when he is told where to put them. The toy helps work on his knowledge of colors or vehicle parts, and following multi-part directions (such as asking him to find a wheel, then put it on the red car base). It also helps to work on his motor skills, as well as his finger and hand strength, to attach the pieces together. There is, of course, the added bonus of being able to play with a boat, plane, or car after he builds it! My pre-schooler can put the vehicles together quickly and easily, feel a sense of accomplishment, play with the toy briefly, then tear it apart and put it together into a different vehicle. The pictures in the instructions are clear enough that she could follow along if she needed guidance. Finally, it's simple enough that older kids can help the younger ones construct the vehicles.
Note: I received this product as part of an incentivized review program.

My daughter and granddaughter (2 yrs old) enjoyed building the car, plane, and boat. The instructions were very easy to follow especially the colorful illustrations to match up each of the parts. My granddaughter would open the instructions and point to each picture to be built. They would build then play and then take it apart. After building all three toys, they would try to invent a new vehicle whether it worked or not. I would recommend this toy.

    - I received this product as part of an incentivized review program.
    - Product came in a sturdy box with great pictures of the toy & my son was so excited to open it.
    - Easy to read instructions with pictures but toy was easy enough to figure out without them.
    - My son is pretty rough with his toys and this one is well built and the pieces are the perfect size for little hands to put together.
    - It's a great toy that gives my son the opportunity to build a plane and then take it apart and make a car or boat. He loves being able to add the different pieces together and make his own toy (half car/half plane)!
    - I would definitely recommend this toy for a little kid who loves to build his own stuff.

      Comments about Learning Resources 1-2-3 Build It Building Set 15 Pieces:

      What a great product for my son who is all about cars, planes, and anything with wheels! He's only 1.5 years old, but he was enamored with the colorful pieces and how I was assembling them. I love the very detailed (and colorful) Instruction Guide. As soon as I built it, my son wanted to push the car and plane around. It's perfect for his little hands and the end product is bigger than I thought it would be. I can't wait for him to build them by himself - he'll get there in no time.

      I do wish there were enough pieces to build all 3.
      I received this product as a free sample in exchange for an honest review.

          The packaging is sturdy and colorful. The pieces can be stored in the box. I will put them in a plastic shoe box so they will be available on the toy shelves in my classroom. The children were very excited to build. They could build the items from the directions and also created some unique constructions of their own. The toy is colorful and durable. As a teacher, I wish there were enough pieces to create all three items. It would allow for more interaction between the students and more students actively engaged at the same time. This toy was given to me as part of an incentivized review program. I would definitely recommend this toy to family and friends.

            This toy is phenomenal! My 3 year old son has built and re-built all 3 (car, plane and boat) countless times over the span of 2 weeks. It is one of the first things he will grab and will sit for quite a long to time build and play with each item. We have used the box for storing the toy and it has held up amazing with the chaos in the house! My son uses the photos to build each of the items but the directions are wonderfully written for his age. My husband will play with the toy after bedtime too! We received this toy as part of an incentive program but will go out and buy it as gifts for everyone! It is really well made, easy to play with and promotes some great fine motor skills, learning and imagination. The steering wheel has been used to steer almost everything in the house. Such a great innovation and so easy to manipulate and build. I really can't say enough about it!

              The 1-2-3 build it was great fun to play, but my 3 year old definitely required adult help to assemble items correctly. This does not mean she didn't have fun or enjoy creative free play with them, but was unable to build car, plane or boat solo.

              Packaging is of good quality and can be reused for storage.

              Each item is fun to play with once built. My 18 month old and 3 year old enjoyed rolling and racing them on the hard wood floors. My husband and I also had a good time building the toys with them. With simple coaching and instructions she could create the items and was excited to feel like she could do it. I think with some practice and time she would be able to do them on her own, but I enjoyed seeing what she could build with her own creativity.

                I love to hear, "I did it!" We played with this set together and followed the picture directions to build the car. After, I left him playing at our table while I got dinner ready and I heard it, "I did it!" He had taken apart the car and built the boat on his own!

                As an educator, I also look at what he's developing or learning from playing with this. I love that the directions are pictorial - it's giving him exposure with matching 2D pictures and 3D objects. As he builds, I see him developing pincer grasp, eye-hand coordination, and bilateral coordination. And there is plenty of problem solving as he not only figures out which piece to place, but in what order, and in what position. That's also increasing his spatial reasoning skills. This product really packs a punch! Thumbs up from me!

                  The 1-2-3- Build it Car-Plane-Boat is a neat toy concept. Using the same pieces to build 3 different modes of transportation extends the playtime for this toy, keeps it interesting, and allows the kids to get creative in their pretend play.

                  My 2.5yr old enjoyed playing with this toy, but she needed a little help with the initial setup of each vehicle. I didn't mind though, because it gave us good bonding time together. Similar to puzzles I would ask her to find a certain piece and, with guidance, she would put the toy together herself. The pieces are nice and large, making it easy for her to grab. Also, I liked how the pieces fit together easily, making it perfect for young kids to assemble.

                  Unfortunately, she was only interested in building/playing with the boat. Any attempt to disassemble the boat was futile. My daughter was protective of her boat, like a mama bear protecting her cub . . . but I can see this toy getting more play value once my daughter lets go of her boat obsession.
