This weekend I found out probably the best gift for a little child. I’ve got a 4 years old nephew, and I had to choose a toy to make him a present and congratulate on his birthday. Me and my dear wife spent about 2 hours choosing a right toy and eventually we bought an Infinitoy ZOOB building kit. We couldn’t wait to present it and play ourselves.
The kit contains lots of pieces of four different kind. Each piece is made from very durable bright colored plastic and has a life-term guarantee, so every broken piece can be replaced for nothing. The pieces work like a joints and can be connected with each other to form different shapes, creatures and vehicles. I think that it is very helpful in child creativity skills development. Beginning from the simplest shapes like snake, a child learn variety of bright constructs from the manual.
To sum up, I’d recommend to buy it if you’re looking for a good gift which might bring fun to both child and parents. In Kiev you can buy 250 pieces set for about 60$. Also there are some cheaper sets with less number of pieces.
