Building and constructing have never been so sweet. Kids follow illustrated, step-by-step instructions in the included activity guide to build scrumptious structures or follow their imaginations to build the candy creations of their sugar-plum dreams. As they’re building, kids are also developing critical thinking skills, fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and other foundational STEM skills. This set is the perfect first building set for preschoolers.
Kids use the candy-shaped pieces to build all kinds of twisty, swirly, colorful creations. The giant gumdrops, swirled candy sticks, big block connectors, and jumbo candy pieces fit together and stay together to create the Yummy Buggy, Sweet Swing, Candy-Go-Round, Candy Cottage, or any other delicious design kids dream up. When they’ve finished, kids can display their creations or take them apart and begin again.
Building candy creations isn’t just fun—research shows that working with blocks and other construction-type toys develops fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, and encourages spatial skills, social skills, and language skills. Best of all, constructing helps kids develop creative thinking and problem solving skills.
