Review:

Packaged in a compact box that doubles as storage, the 120 brightly colored rectangular plastic pieces and connectors shape learning and fun.

As the name implies, the building pieces have grooves all four sides. Builders can follow the instruction guide (designs include a house, playground, airplane, and even a peacock), or use their imaginations to create and construct. Little hands were easily able to connect pieces and snap on connectors and hinges to make functional doors, shutters, and wings. Groovy Blocks can be used in individual or cooperative play, honing fine motor skills, and inspiring imaginative design as well as conversation.
