Boys Will Be Boys . . . So Hand Make Their Toys: Buildeez Giveaway


********Update:  Giveaway is now closed *******
Buildeez
So when I set about looking for shops who'd be willing to sponsor our series, I stumbled upon Buildeez.  I sent messages to a lot of shops and really, I sent the message to the owners of Buildeez as a whim, never thinking for a million year's they'd be willing to sponsor our series.

I am SO glad I sent that message because their building materials are perfect.  This life size set comes with 80 PIECES:

-28 wooden balls (18 holes in each for optimal imagination play) the size is 2" in diameter
-40 sticks (made from hardwood)15" in length
-18 sticks (made from hardwood)10" in length




and everything they build is big enough for them to fit right inside.  I can't even describe to you how wonderful it would be to watch my boys playing with these.


The Buildeez Balls are made from solid hardwood (Poplar). They are cut into 2.25" wooden cubes. From this point 12 cuts are made from which the Buildeez ball gets its shape. They are then painted with a non toxic kid friendly latex based paint. After drying, each ball has 18 half inch holes drilled into them to allow building from every direction. 



Which means that anything they imagine can be built:  An airplane, tank, or castle?  You bet!

And you lucky ducks have the opportunity to win a set of your very own.  Just leave a comment below telling me what your child would build with the set.

  1. I think that my children would build a pirate ship or a cubby house. Then there would be rockets and mines and all sorts of creations that I would never think of. They love creative, imaginative play and these would certainly enhance their play.

  5. This is awesome! The things the boys would make is endless, I see hours and hours of entertainment. The first thing the youngest would build is likely a Star Wars ship.
