Twig! A gratifying new branch to the Classic Building Block family tree!

It's a building set that really offers you the freedom of exploring the-inside-and-the-out of fun designing. Playing with Twig is gratifying for your hands - and offers mental play that's exuberant!

It's your hands and mind in concert with the finest materials for amazing building. Equally appealing in the playroom, in your office, or on the coffee table, Twig is designed for everyone.

With Twig, you create using your mind's eye... Your mind finds satisfaction in sorting colors, finding solutions for intermixing pieces of varying depth, accommodating diverse interior dimensions and shapes, and making final adjustments to your masterpieces. Precision-cut wood pieces slide in between and next to one another with ease while extra rich colors add terrific flair to structures.

Learning comes naturally! Twig construction sets refine small motor abilities while developing skills in logic, problem solving, visual-spatial ability, creativity and ingenuity, sensory awareness, language & vocabulary proficiencies, cooperative and independent play skills, and artistic expression. Kids love putting the unique interchanging pieces together - Adults love the freedom of design!

Precision wooden shapes and vibrant colors meet in modern building blocks. Natural wood is carved with care and colored with brilliant rubberwood and water based paint. Light plays its way through the windows of Twig, illuminating lines, contours, space, and arrangement. Open your mind and imagination to new exercises in visual spatial development!More Twig.

    Great toy

    Good quality, bright colors . I was afraid my grandchildren, aged 4, 6 and 7 might be too old for this but they loved it! They built things with this for hours. It stores very compactly in the box it came in. It also cones with a draw string bag for storage. I would recommend this for any age.

    Nice building toy, lots of open ended play involved. Pieces get lost though, so we need to replace them often.

    Great Toy
    Posted 7/14/2013 by Pauline

    Our granddaughter's father and mother play with this as much as she does! They all create and play together. The "open" design of the blocks is teaching the 2 1/2 year old how to line smaller blocks up to pass through. She combines her creations with stuffed animals, etc. Very creative and inventive.
