Building sets are an essential part of childhood playtime, and Zometool is a fun and unique twist on typical sets. Playing with sets from Zometool helps to teach children about architecture, engineering, geometry, and math. These simple “sticks and balls” open a world of options for children and adults of all ages.
Zometool sent us their Creator 1 kit which contains 246 pieces all stored away neatly in a compact carrying case and has an idea booklet as well. We all immediately got to work playing with the struts and nodes and all had a blast creating with the Zometool set. Our favorite was making a big bucket of bubble solution and using it to make amazing 4D projects with a bubble contained inside our project. The kids (and adults too!) had a great time making stuff, using the bubble solution, tearing them apart and starting over. The boys learned so much while making structures, so that just made it an added bonus.
Zometool has been catching attention with awards from Dr. Toy and Creative Child Awards because of just how great their kits are. You can learn more about Zometool toys, including where to buy, on their website, www.zometool.com. The Creator 1 kit retails for $59 and is designed for kids age 6 and up because of small pieces. Zometool also has an exclusive discount available for 3G2S readers that gets you 15% off your order by using the Code: Garnets on their website before December 31st, 2012. You must order by December 16th to receive your order in time for Christmas by Standard Shipping.
More Zometool kits that would make great Holiday gifts are Crazy Bubbles, Pyramid Puzzle, and the Ice Crystals and Stars Project Kit.
