Disclosure: We received the featured nanoblock (a division of OhioArt) mini-series and sites-to-see sets (featured below) for the purposes facilitating this review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are mine and based on our experiences.
Micro blocks = BIG FUN!
Admittedly, when I saw the incredibly small size of the nanoblock, I knew my boys would be too young to assist much with the review. Hayden, of course, still showed great interest, so I began to build. I worked on the 110 pc. mini-series (terrier), but with Henry around, I decided this might be a job for dad Sure enough, that was a great decision! Chuck really enjoyed building the 550 pc. Neuschwanstein Castle 3D Site-to-See set! It did take about 2 + hours and somewhat nimble fingers are required. Unlike other block sets, the (one) page instructions are completely visual (no parts list) and you build layer by layer. The pieces were already semi-sorted and visually the colors used. made the instructions easy to follow! My husband enjoyed it so much he mentioned interest in building the WWII Fighter Jet! He also brought it to work with him to show his colleagues! Hayden was SO impressed and repeatedly told his dad “He did an AMAZING Job!” When he is just a bit older, I know they will really enjoy working on nanoblocks together! It is really offers the perfect combination of creativity and attention to detail! The smaller sized blocks lend themselves to a more precise look to your creation!
