Nothing can be more disheartening to a parent than to see a much-begged-for toy in a corner and the children playing with the box it came in. Sure, it’s great to see them be creative with a cardboard container, but what about all that pleading that this was the one toy they couldn’t live without?

This is because construction toys by their very nature are flexible and dynamic; increasing the time the child spends with them by keeping them fresh in their mind for daily play. Every generation of kids understands how blocks work.
