NanoBlocks: A Toy Review
Introducing the world's smallest building blocks! Developed in Tokyo, nanoblock has a patented double feather design to lock pieces firmly together and let you build in greater detail than ever before. Each set includes anywhere from 100 pieces to more than 5800 pieces. Try nanoblock, the biggest little block in the nanoverse! There are three series: The Sites To See Series, Mini Series and Deluxe Series.
In 2011, the nanoblock sensation was introduced in The United States by The Ohio Art Company. Named Construction Toy of the Year by the American Specialty Toy Retail Association, nanoblock is winning awards and gaining a loyal following around the world. Try them today and remember, the bigger you get, the smaller your blocks should get!
About The Sites To See Series:
Create 3D works of architectural art with Nanoblock! These micro-sized building blocks will enable you to execute even the finest details like never before!
With many different locations in our Nanoblock “Sites to See” collection, you will be inspired to collect, build, and display all your works of art! The series includes, Eiffel Tower, Great Banyan Tree, Kaminarimon, Kinkakuji Temple, Moai Statues, Mont Saint-Michel, Neuschwanstein, Sagrada Familia, and the Taj Mahal.
The Kinkakuji Temple:
With over 370 pieces, watch in amazement as this majestic temple takes shape right beneath your fingertips! With a finished size of 3.125″ h x 2.625″w x 2.625″d, you don’t have to travel around the world to see an amazing sight. This set comes complete with instructions! For ages 8+.
I was fortunate to review the Kinkakuji Temple from the Sites To See Series from NanoBlock. Actually I did not build it, but had my husband try it out. He really liked it. Definitely designed for older children (and evidently, adults) because of the amount of pieces and their size (even smaller than the Lego brand building blocks), Nanoblock will provide hours of fun and entertainment.
My only wish is that Nanoblock will come out with sets of blocks that are not designed to build a specific item. Like a bucket of multi-colored blocks, which will allow children's imaginations to develop and create other projects. Other than that I believe the Nanoblock is a fantastic product and I hope to be able to find more retailers in Canada that sell Nanoblocks in the near future (currently there is only one in Ontario).
I highly recommend Nanoblock and give it a huge thumbs up.
