Award Winning Superstructs for Your Little Builder

by Erica

My four-year-old son is my little builder. He can spend hours playing with blocks and legos. I knew that he would just love his own custom kit from Superstructs.

Award-winning Superstructs by WABA Fun LLC, are the vibrant plastic rod and connector style construction toys that feature safe, durable EVA foam panels that ‘pop’ between the rods and joints.

New this year are Superstructs Custom Kits, an easy online system where anyone can design and personalize their own toy building set. Gift givers can select from over 24,000 possible combinations to give to an inquisitive child. Superstructs sets are suitable for children ages 3 and up.

The kits have already caught the attention of industry award programs, most recently winning a prestigious Fall 2010 Parents’ Choice Recommended Award. The kits also won two awards from Dr. Toy: 100 Best Children’s Products and 10 Best Creative Products for 2010

My son and I sat down together, visited the Superstructs site and picked out 3 kits, the motorcycle, forklift and race car. We then selected a box design and for the personalization option, I had him type out his name. He LOVED seeing his name right there on his Superstructs box.

We had a blast customizing his Superstructs kit and he has been having a ball putting his models together.

He has used Tinkertoys in the past and is familiar with the rod and connector type construction, so the Superstructs aren’t too much of a challenge for him. He has been building the models along with his daddy and it makes for perfect father son bonding time.

If there is a little builder on your Christmas list, I can not recommend Superstructs enough. Of course we have one Superstructs custom kit to give away. Our winner will be able to select three sets.
