As one of the Guidecraft Educators I received the PowerClix for review.
PowerClix have provided hours of creative entertainment in our home. From building 3D models, to using them as magnets on the Guidecraft 3-in-1 easle, there is never a dull moment when the PowerClix are out for play.
PowerClix TM, the 3D Building System from Guidecraft, lets you explore and build endless models with the easy click ‘n connect system. Super-strong magnetic force creates a quick connect for fast, simple and powerful 3D modeling. Build bridges, skyscrapers, animals and more. Colorful translucent plastics and unique geometric shapes and extender rods allow for open-ended, creativity-inspiring constructions. The PowerClix TM Activity Guide gives young builders step-by-step instructions on how to create a variety of models while teaching them the basics of science, construction and engineering.
When we first got the package, our girls were already in bed for the night – my husband got carried away creating masterpieces of his own (we are all kids at heart, right?!). He left thePowerClix on the table when we went to bed and when the youngest crawled down the stairs early in the morning and all we heard from the kitchen was “click….click….click” as she started making models of her own.
7 year old Kate loves to follow along re-creating the creations in the Activity Guide while 5 year old Jane loves making up her own creations. Bugs, buildings, jewelry, you name it – she’s probably created it.
When the girls have friends over all the children gravitate to this new “cool” and “innovative” toy.
If you are looking for a Christmas Gift Idea – these would not disappoint. With the quality I’ve come to trust from Guidecraft I know they would last for many year in a home or classroom setting. With sets at different price points – you can find which is best for you.
