Brain Blox Wooden Building Planks Review

My kids love to build and create and I love educational toys so we were all super excited to use Brain Blox Wooden Building Planks from Brain Blox to build a variety of items!

 Our Brain Blox Wooden Building Planks

The back of the packaging has some fun building ideas!

These wooden building planks are 100% natural and chemical free.  They are made from New Zealand Pine and are made sustainably with renewable resources.  They are solid and precision cut.  They can be used by toddlers and beyond (4-104).  Our set came with 200 planks and a drawstring backpack to hold them as well as a booklet of build ideas.

Here you can see that our red drawstring backpack is nice and large.

 Inside our box!

 Every plank is the same size and above you can see the plank thickness.

 The planks fit nicely in the bag.

Here you see E carrying our planks around in the drawstring bag.

I love that these building planks help build confidence and creativity in my kiddos.  They also help them develop problem solving and reasoning abilities as they build and create.  I really enjoy watching their ideas come to life in wooden form.

Not only is there a booklet of build ideas but there are also suggestions for other cool ideas as well.

There are so many ways to use these versatile blocks - STEM projects, school, family time, competitions, and even on the go to name a few.  Brain Blox Wooden Building Planks are available for purchase in sets of 100, 200 or 300.  If you need a fun and unique gift idea, this is definitely a contender.  You can purchase Brain Blox Wooden Building Planks here.

Another fun thing you can do with Brain Blox planks are brain puzzles!  The puzzles can be found online here.  Your job is to try and figure out the solutions.  There are hints available as well as the solutions online too.  You can even come up with your very own puzzles.

Here is an example of one of the brain puzzles, puzzle 12.  What's the highest number you can make above by moving only 2 planks?  Good luck.
