If you are familiar with block building systems, you know how fun they are and how they get children’s imagination soaring. nanoblock is a toy building brick system from Japan, similar to Lego, but smaller. The pieces are small and intricate and your builder will have tons of fun making the different toys. Gabby was stoked to see these, they were new to her and she was shocked at the size.
Let Your Imagination Soar!
Small but, mighty! The nanoblock sets are extremely small building blocks that are just half the size of Kawada standard diablock! The smallest part is a mere 4 x 4 mm! That’s tiny but, it makes it all that more challenging and fun for builders who pride themselves at building ANYTHING! Not to mention, the smaller the parts the more detailed the final piece will be. That was what Gabby said after she built her first one. She noticed the details in comparison to other building blocks!
The Mini Collection.
When I saw the finished product, I was blown away. Look how that orca looks! It is pretty crazy that you can see the eagle’s talons as well. The mini-series has a wide array of animals, creatures and mini-instruments! I would recommend these sets for older kids only as the size is incredibly small. Just to be on the safe side! You can purchase the Orca Building Blocks for about $16 and the Bald Eagle for about $25. Toys ‘R Us also carries them!
The Advanced Hobby Collection.
Now this one is made for the building experts out there! You will find a lot of detail in all of these sets! The pieces are tiny of course! Gabby loved building this because it challenged her and on top of that you can get such cool sets. From a human skeleton, air liner, T-Rex skeleton, pirate ship, Eiffel Tower, the Titanic and so much more! Landmarks, castles, spaceships and trains! There is plenty to choose from! You can purchase the Motorcycle Puzzle, here for $38.
They also have the Sights to See Collection where you’ll find the cutest japanese characters to the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Buckingham Palace! Can you imagine the details in those sets?
If your kids love to build with building blocks and are up for a challenge, get them nanblocks. Gabby is hooked and she told me she needs another shelf for her masterpieces! I have a feeling she will fill it up very soon with these! They are perfect for stocking stuffers and a great gift for any older child in your life any time of the year!
