“A runaway hit in our testing centers, Lauri Locktagons delighted parent testers with its ability to entertain and engage children and their imaginations for extended period of time. We saw such a broad variety of inventive construction, from castles and cars to houses and free-form creations that were, well, we're not sure what they were but the kids were sure proud of them. The Locktagon pieces are just the right size for children to handle and manipulate. The three different shapes each feature slots that lock together in such a way that once a base is created the only way to go is up, or sideways, or diagonally...in the end it's pretty much up to your child and their imagination.”

“These are different from the original crepe rubber Locktagons that were all flower shaped. There are 216 brightly colored pieces in the new set that come in three different geometric shapes and are made of hard plastic with slots that lock together. They can be used to build horizontally and vertically. There is no right or wrong way to build, yet fitting the pieces together calls for problem solving, logical thinking, and fine motor skills. This is the kind of hands on toy that builds spatial awareness as well as creative thinking. You can use these to sort by color or shape. Are there more blues or greens? Are there more yellows or oranges? Play with them for making patterns…red, blue, yellow, red blue…what comes next? Kids who are into counting can have fun counting them one by one or stacks of five or ten. Best of all, this is an open-ended construction toy that children keep coming back to and using in their own inventive ways.”

“When I saw the fun shapes and colors of the Locktagons, I knew my children would have a blast being creative and building together. This bright construction toy is perfect for toddlers and older children. There is no right or wrong way to play with this toy, your child's imagination just runs wild. Besides building, playing color and shape games are a blast.  Zoe knows all her shapes and colors, but to make sure she never forgets I'm always asking her to sort.  This is the perfect toy for that.  It's fun for everyone, and it actually gets them to think, which is always a plus. The kids ask daily to play with these, and it's one toy I don't mind getting down, as its building their fine motor skills, logical thinking, and spatial awareness.”
