Construct-it Early Builder {Guidecraft Mom Review}


Three of our kids have been very into building toys lately and I am literally watching their creativity come alive as they build and create. We recently added the Construct-It Early Builder set to our home and it has been a HUGE hit since it’s debut!

Construct-It has 160 pieces in the box, including building tools such as a pliers, a hammer, a wrench and a screwdriver. The tools are ‘chunky’ so that younger children have an easier time holding onto them. Among the pieces you’ll find rods to connect pieces, wheels of varying sizes, nuts, bolts and plenty of sturdy building pieces to come up with a variety of creations.


The box also includes a picture guide of vehicles and fun things that children have created using the Builder set. There are no specific directions so that your child can do the creating on his own and work on some critical thinking skills at the same time. :)

Our Thoughts

I knew that our kids would enjoy building with the Construct-it Early Builder set, but really I wasn’t prepared for how MUCH they would enjoy it. The boys immediately created as many vehicles as they could. Kaleb stuck to making planes and robots, but Zachary was putting together tanks, cars, boats, etc… and building away. Kaleb even figured out a way to attach a screw to his plane and then drop ‘bombs’ as he flew over the other vehicles.

All over our house I am finding various creations ~ proudly displayed on dressers, tables, counters, but played with continually. Although the pieces are made from plastic, they have held up wonderfully with our kids and we are loving the product!
