Have you heard of YOXO Toys? It’s a exciting building toy suitable for kids 4-8 and YOXO (pronounced “yock-so”) has partnered with PBS KIDS to make thse new creative “Build It Kits”.The toy is made from recycled material AND it can be recycled!
The Built It Kits are available in three sizes: 30 piece, 60 piece and 120 piece. They are super easy to order from the YOXO website – although you can also get them from Amazon. However – I *do* have a 10% coupon code for you if you order through YOXO – keep reading for that one! The website is very user friendly, adding items to your cart is straightforward, and you can pay by credit card or Paypal.
My son (5.5 years) was VERY intrigued about this new toy. He has liked building and construction toys from a very early age, so I wasn’t surprised that he took to it straight away.
The 30 piece box contains 28 building pieces, two super sturdy tubes, and some fun eye stickers. Not that the tubes aren’t fun as well…
The information on the box provides some helpful details on how to connect the pieces. It doesn’t give detailed instructions for specific designs, but there ARE loads of step-by-step instructions that you can download from the Instructions tab of the YOXO website. There are several spaceship designs, animal and bird designs, spinning tops, cranes and more!
But my son immediately wanted to create his own design anyway, and got started. I love how he can use his imagination and create his own design exactly as he wishes.
The YOXO pieces are made from a durable and earth-friendly wood pulp composite – and they connect easily and firmly, yet can be taken apart by kids too. He didn’t need me to help with anything. This was his first completed design:
He then dismantled it all and made a set of three “earth fighters” (or something!). My son is always inventing and building things, it’s quite hard to keep up with all the names!
I know that we’ll have this building toy around for a long time. If we need to change it up a bit, it is super easy to add to the set with items from around the home, including toilet paper tubes, cereal boxes, and even LEGO!
So if you’re looking for an environmentally-friendly, non-plastic, non-electronic toy that kids will actually love, get them a set of YOXO and watch how creative they can be!
