My son loves to build.
He enjoys following a plan and getting something out of it.
So, when we were offered the opportunity to play with nanoblocks (the micro-sized building blocks), how could I say no?
I will say that when they say nanoblocks and micro-sized, they aren’t kidding! They are very tiny, but pretty cool!
My son put together the mini set that we received. I thought it was going to be difficult for him because of the size, but he was able to maneuver the pieces quite well!
He was extremely happy with the final result!
His dad did most of the work on the sites to see set, which was a little more complex.
I would have to say, that these nanoblock sets are pretty dang cool to play with and awesome to look at when they are completely together!
nanoblocks are currently available via the OhioArt website, but will soon be in retailers such a Target!
For those of us with future architects and engineers, there is also nanoblock: Build It Your Way competition!
How the nanoblock® Build It Your Way Competition works:

- Judging Phase: All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of judges consisting of a mixture of toy industry opinion leaders and Ohio Art representatives. The top five finalists will be selected and notified on or around.
