As a work-from-home mom, I often struggle with keeping my little one entertained. Whenever my schedule permits, I love to take her out on adventures, but a lot of the time, it’s just the two of us at home most of the day. As she gets older and more independent, it does get a bit easier, but it can still be difficult to keep her happily occupied without a tablet or a TV screen.
We have several play “stations” set up with a variety of different toys and I even rotate some toys in and out of toy boxes so it feels new and fresh. But sometimes, it’s still not enough. When Picasso Tiles sent us their tube building set, I couldn’t wait to try it out and see how she liked it.
Building blocks are a personal favorite because there’s no lights, no sounds, no screen. It’s all based on imagination and creativity. Luckily, both of my kids have really loved them as well. We have many different varieties of blocks and it’s the one toy that both my toddler AND my teenager enjoy and will play together.
The tube building set was no different. They absolutely loved it. The pieces are bright and colorful and easy for my littlest one’s hands to use. It’s very unique and different than any other building set they’ve tried and they love that. The set comes with wheels which allows their creations to have endless possibilities – from a building to a race car to a basketball hoop.
I am a huge advocate of screen-free play and learning through fun and this building set is all of that! It is definitely approved by both of my kiddos and 100% approved by this picky mama. It’s hard to impress the kids these days, but these tubes are so unique and so fun, that it keeps both of mine happy and playing together, so it keeps this mama happy too.
Thank you Picasso Tiles!
