    Comments about Learning Resources Mental Blox 360 3D Building Game:

    We enjoy seeking out the products that encourage creativity and imagination, as well as the products that can engage the entire family! Well one company that I have relied on for years with my kids when it comes to finding those products is Learning Resources, and when we got the Mental Blox, we were once again pleased with our choice! We found this to be a fun puzzle like game that my kids were able to do together. I loved watching to see how while the kids played, it really got the gears going in their heads. I like that it is geared towards being a game that challenges the kids with the various puzzles that they can build using the blocks. I also liked that with the 3 levels of play, that even after the kids completed one level, they could continue to be challenged over and over again! Which in all has made this game not only a great one for having in the home, especially on those cold and rainy days, but also a product that I have added to my list of great gifts to give this coming holiday season!

    Comments about Learning Resources Mental Blox 360 3D Building Game:

    For openness: I was provided a set of Learning Resources Mental Blox 360 3-D Building Game to review. The opinions are mine and my sons'. Okay, have you ever played tangrams? Well, these are like 3D tangrams. The challenge cards show you, on the front, which blocks to use, what the final image should be, and from what angle you should see said image. Then, you build it! There are varying difficulties of challenge cards. (It sounds more confusing than it really is.)

    From the moment we popped the box open, the boys jumped in and started building. In fact, I had to let them build things with the blocks first, before we even got to the instructions. While it was frustrating for me, it was actually a good thing. While they were building their things, they were actually exploring how the blocks all fit together in different ways. So, when we finally got to the challenge cards, they hammered out the first few without even a moment's hesitation.

    When opened the box, I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to get all of the pieces to fit back into the box perfectly again. My fears were allayed, when I discovered that they had a template printed on the bottom of the box to show you where each piece goes! This way you can quickly discover if you have a piece missing.

    The boys played the challenge cards for awhile, but they also just like stacking the blocks up to make different shapes. Also, my oldest son (1st grade) brought his homework home the other night, and it was a page of drawings that looked just like the pieces from the game. So, he was able to try to match the drawings on the page with the pieces in real life and see it as an object rather than just the line drawing. Quite a handy homework helper!

    Pros: The pieces are super easy to stack. The game is interactive. We use it for family time. It encourages creative game play.

    Cons: One of the pieces had to be glued back together after a fall. Kids wanted MORE BLOCKS! :D

    Highly recommend this to Pre-K and up.

      Comments about Learning Resources Mental Blox 360 3D Building Game:

      We've had this game for about a week now and my two boys have played with it every day since it came in. My 4 year old loves building blocks and puzzles so this game is perfect for him. I have really enjoyed going through the cards with him and he of course loves that it is something we can do together. He plays with it on his own as well but prefers we do it together. Our 2 year old loves to build with blocks and though he doesn't use the cards, he will spend a lot of time building with the blocks. They both really love them. If we had seen these at a friends house, I would definitely have added them to our Christmas list. (I was provided this game in exchange for my 100% honest review)

        Comments about Learning Resources Mental Blox 360 3D Building Game:

        We received this product for free in exchange with my honest review.

        I was so surprise how my children react to this toy after we tried it out. To start with, My children already have wooden blocks toy and they didn't do much with it. I was curious about this toy and wonder what make it different from the others so I checked out the product information on the website. I noticed that this toy comes with puzzle cards. So we gave it a try.

        When we received it, both of my children were quite excited. There are light weight and very colorful blocks inside. There are 40 cards feature the puzzle on the front and the solution on the back. My daughter was very curious about the cards. So we took them out and see how to play using these cards. The cards can be divided into 3 colours which means there are 3 levels. The green ones are the easiest.

        Surprisingly, My daughter had a lot of fun! She just kept playing with it, cards after cards. Even myself, I found I had a lot of fun, trying to solve each card with her. It is very interesting.

        I think the price is not too bad. Plus this toy encourage my daughter to problem solves and being quite creative. The box also have an outline to put blocks back where they belong which made my daughter enjoy putting them away without complaining as well.

          This is an awesome 3-D puzzle activity that reminds me of Tetris. The first time opening this box and my whole family is addicted already. There are 40 puzzles cards to work out. They did them all with a very little help, and making a contest out of who could do it the quickest. I really like how it makes them look at a problem differently to figure it out, making them use different parts of the brain.

            I am always looking for games and toys that will challenge my kids and keep them entertained for longer than five minutes, games that they want to play again and again, and games that engage their minds. Mental Blox 360 is awesome! I love how you really have to use your brain and think outside of the box so to speak to solve the puzzles. I love that Mental Blox 360 is a hands on activity that makes you think. I love that the challenges range from easy (for my youngest son) and increase in difficulty so that even my 19 year old can play this with his little brothers and not get bored. I love that the pieces are durable and can withstand being thrown or dropped, and that this is good for the boys to play with together OR to play with on their own. I've never seen anything like this before, so I also really enjoy the uniqueness of it, and I know that my boys will get years of use out of Mental Blox. I received this product for free to review, all opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way.

              Mental Blox are a great form of educational play! I have two daughters that LOVE playing with these. Although the Blox are for ages 5+, my 2 year old still likes to freely build with them. My 5 year old likes trying to solve the puzzles on the cards. And I like that she can do this activity alone. ;) As a former teacher, I would buy these for a classroom in a heartbeat! (I was provided product, in exchange for my 100% honest review.)

                My kids (10, 7, 3) had a good time playing with Mental Blox. While my 3 year old just would build whatever he wanted, my older two took the provided cards to be challenged with the set designs. I like how the cards range from very easy to increasingly harder. I love that this activity required my children to stretch their brains and perspective. Though the game did ultimately make my 7 year old cry out of frustration, with some help and explaining from Dad he was able to calm down and enjoy the blox again. Overall I'm happy with this educational game.

                  I love brain stimulating games for my kids especially ones that don't require a crazy amount of technology to start using. Mental Blox 360 is an innovative challenge for kids built on using basic shapes. My kids love building things, but when put to the challenge to create 3-d puzzles from different perspectives opens up their creativity to an entirely new level.

                  The game features 40 double-sided cards that feature the puzzle on the front and solution on the back so my kids can play and learn all by themselves. There are there levels of play so kids definitely enhance their spatial visualization, critical thinking and problem skills as they advance through the different levels. While both my kids enjoy doing the puzzles on their own, they also love to challenge each other to see who can complete them faster. I even find myself enjoying the challenges while playing with my kids.

                    I was sent this item for my honest review. All opinions are mine alone. My 5-year-old daughter instantly took to this product. She really enjoyed trying to match the blocks to the pictures and soon started building her own shapes for fun, too! Some of the pictures were hard to understand (it would look like you need a single orange cube but there are none in the box, for instance), but they were great overall.
