We Love Wedgits!! {& Giveaway}

wedgits logo

A friend of ours pulled out a big tub of Wedgits when we were over for a visit and for the rest of the time we were there, Zachary was lost in a world of building and creating. I was fascinated by them too and right after we left Zachary wanted to know if we could get some too.

A few weeks later CSN Stores contacted me and asked if I’d like to host another giveaway. I quickly searched their Toys and Games Online store and when I saw Wedgits were available…I knew that was what I wanted to share with you all!

What are Wedgits?

Wedgits are essentially building blocks that are 3 dimensional. Children nest, fit and stack the Wedgits together, creating designs either from their imagination or following guided cards…and there are hundreds of designs that can be made! They are safe for children as young as age one and up {be sure to check package labels still}.

Zachary was jumping up and down with excitement when the Wedgits showed up on our doorstep. We had to wait a few days before we could pull them out to use them, but it was well worth the wait! The entire time he was working with them, he kept shouting out ~ ‘Wedgits are AWESOME!’.

Here are a few of the creations that Zachary worked on…balancing blocks carefully and getting everything ‘just so’. Do you see in the center picture how the blocks look like they are ‘floating’?
