Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be any more exciting building toys on the market, along comes a new exciting building toy unlike any other before it.
Have you heard of Zoob yet?
I have to say that personally, I had not.
When I was asked to review Zoob here, I rather absent-mindedly agreed to review the mysterious sounding kids toy with zero knowledge of exactly what I was to receive.
A few weeks later a plain box arrived on our doorstep and out came the mysterious (to me) tub of Zoob. To my surprise, immediately all my primary-aged kids became excited and began to yelp about how they played with Zoob at school...
Well in my mind, if it's deemed good enough for the high standards in their classrooms, that's enough said already!
Theoretically I could end my review right here but if you're in the dark like I was, you might like to get acquainted with this unique play and learning experience. It's really quite cool! It's fair to say we've all had a go at this new building concept which has become a bit of a normal feature on our dining table.
My explanation of this toy is as simple as colourful hollow poles and socket ended rods which connect together and allow movement. There are actually five separate pieces that make up Zoob and they can snap together in twenty different ways to make a moveable, three dimensional creation that encourages kids to think outside of the square (so to speak!).
Zoob is quite age friendly and definitely suitable for girls and boys. Younger kids can manage simple creations while older ones can adapt the included instructions to build quite complex models. Zoob holds together well too, so kids can actually play quite vigorously with their builds and they won't come apart too easily.
Full step by step illustrated guides are included in the 125 piece tub which offer unique builds and ideas to expand on your own kids' imaginations.
Ruben set about making himself some nifty playthings to show you: Everything from dinosaurs to two jet-pack men (my personal favourite and his very own idea). In all, he managed eight simple models using the Zoob in our tub. All of his designs were fully moveable allowing his creations to come to life.

Zoob is manufactured by Alex Brands and is distributed in Australia by U. Games. Zoob is available in a variety of kits to suit inquisitive kids. The age recommendation for the kit featured is 6 plus however all of my kids - from the toddler to the teens (and the adults) are keen to fiddle with this. It's fun and it really challenges your thinking when it comes to building an interesting idea from scratch.
Zoob is available at Australian Geographic stores and major toy stores Australia wide. The 125 piece Zoob tub featured in this review retails for $52. Give Zoob a try! We think this toy is refreshingly educational and fun.
