For the Boys! Rokblocks Review & Giveaway ~ CLOSED

I don't know any boy that doesn't love to build things.  I am very excited to share with you a really fun block system that really can grow with your child.  I love products that can be used for years.  Have you heard of ROK Blocks?  ROK Blocks are made by ROKENBOK and are a unique design block system.  They are shaped in a way that makes it easier for little hands to use.  The interlocking block is self aligning with the triangle cone shape design.  ROK Blocks also are unique in that they are able to be stacked up, down, and in three dimensions.  This makes it easy to build fun objects like cars, trucks, airplanes, helicopters, houses, and more. 

We received the both the preschool ROK blocks set and the Deluxe preschool ROK blocks set to try.  When we received it Jayden was excited to see what was inside.  After opening the boxes and dumping them both on the floor Jayden began putting them together.  He was able to easily grasp the blocks and push them together.  He wanted to make something like the picture on the box.  Of course I am not great at that, but there are instructions for making different items.  I like that because so many kids like to have a model to follow.  The sets include different shape blocks that work together and a couple of people to add to the play.

When John got home later that day Jayden had to show them to him.  Of course he was like a kid again and they sat on the floor building things together.  Right away I knew this would be a great item for the two of them to play with together.  They now have a permanent home in our toy shelf so it is easy to pull them out to play with and to clean up when done. 

Another thing I love about ROK Blocks is that they can grow with your child.  Children of different ages can use these in different ways in how they build.  Plus you can get a RC kit to add to the mix of blocks.  You can build train tracks or a construction site and add a remote control train or dump truck to make it even more interesting.  They also have a full featured set for 6+ and an advanced set for 9+.  There are so many things you can do with these blocks.  To see the Rok'n set in action visit The Jacobsen Family to see her review.  ROK Blocks are compatible with all other Rokenbok sets and can be used in your child’s most advanced Rokenbok creation ten years from now.

I also really like that they are not associated with any characters.  I know that kids love characters from television and movies, but they change what they like so much.  If your child stops loving a character then they are less likely to play with items associated with that character.  With the ROK Blocks your child can add whatever they like, but also change it as they grow and change their interest.

check out this video to see how they work:




I think these blocks would be great for any occasion.  Of course a great birthday gift if you have a birthday coming up.  They would also be a great Christmas gift.  Yes I said it, CHRISTMAS!  I know the holidays are not for 6 more months, but many of us moms are looking and shopping all year long.  Not many people enjoy the last minute rush of shopping for the holidays.  I suggest getting a set now and hiding it for Christmas.  I love having a stash ready for Christmas, it makes the holidays less stressful.  And for those children that are hard to shop for, nieces, nephews, grand kids, or your own picky child these are great.  ROK Blocks can be used year round by children of all ages.
