TRIO Blocks by Fisher Price

My little boys love building with everything and anything they can get their hands on. My downstairs often looks like a construction zone, as towers, tents, tunnels and more are created and in progress constantly.

My husband enjoys the building fun, as well, though my Tupperware was not always as happy. Now though, we can have even more fun, thanks to the new Fisher Price TRIO blocks! TRIO blocks are created with kids aged 3 and up, but they don't have the "baby" feel that younger aged Lego's have.

My son, Little Dude, even decided that the TRIO blocks are for "big boys" while the larger building Lego type blocks we also have have been labeled "baby toys". Can you tell he is in love? Oh he is. He has already pointed out how he NEEDS the Fisher Price TRIO construction set for Christmas...

What is different though about these blocks? They are EASY to snap together and build with AND they are a great shape and size for older children that are still just a little young for Lego's (or any other type small building blocks). TRIO building blocks also come in great packages, like construction, castle, and more, to create fun building adventures.

And unlike duplos or Legos, there are no tiny pieces to lose, and there is a great starter kit that comes with a storage box. Also, when you build with the TRIO blocks, you can create all kinds of things, from robots to towers, cars and planes, and you can get great instructions online or with your set to create an endless amount of creativity.

Little Dude even created a plane all by himself, after a few pointers from the instruction pamphlet.

These are the one blocks that I don't have to snap together or constantly get apart for Little Dude; however, they are also so fun and easy that I enjoy sitting forever and building with the boys! JR, though younger than the age the blocks are designed for (he is 15 months) also enjoys playing while supervised (Kids that might still try to eat the blocks should be supervised; they could choke!)The pieces are easy enough to snap together that JR can also join in the fun, but the blocks are also sturdy enough that he can't completely destroy whatever Little Dude builds with a swat. THAT is nice for mama!

My son is dying for the Trio Wizard's castle, but we'd settle for a basic set!
