When Peyton was in preschool they had these magnetic blocks that all the kids wanted to play with. The kids would spend house building homes and villages with these blocks. When I saw the 4DBlocks it made me think back to those days when Peyton would spend house building with the magnetic blocks at preschool.
When Peyton saw the 4DBlocks she became extremely excited. She tried to play it off like it wasn’t a big deal but I knew she wanted to get her hand on them. As soon as I asked her if she could build me something, she looked at me and casually replied – Sure, if that what you want, I can help with that. This kid cracks me up!
We have the 40 piece block set and I would say this is an ok beginner set. There are bigger sets. If your child is one that loves to build I highly suggest investing in one of the larger sets or buying multiple sets. Peyton was able to use her imagination and build things with the set. But if I wanted her to build for a long period of time we would need many more blocks.
In the 40 piece set you will get the following –
2 – wheel sets
2 – large octagons
18 – squares
12 – small rectangles
6 – non-magnetic squares
Peyton had enough to build a car and have a few left over.
Inside the kit is a booklet full of building ideas. In the larger kits come a few different pieces which will enable you to make a functioning skywheel.
Currently. 4DBlocks offers 3 set sizes – 40 pieces, 72 pieces and 82 pieces. I would highly suggest buying 2 of the larger sets so your child can build a few things at the same time.
4DBlocks are available on Amazon.

Another great STEM-related toy! I think kids learn through play and they develop all kinds of skills that will help them in school.
