Rokenbok ROK Blocks. When the set arrived, Miss H was so excited to take all the parts out of the box. As a follow-the-directions kind of person, I immediately headed for the instruction manual to figure out how to assemble the airplane from the Deluxe Preschool Building Set that I was provided.
There we were sitting side by side on the floor together. I was pouring over the instructions, and Miss H was "helping." After awhile, she figured out that it was boring just watching me put the airplane together, so she started playing with the blocks herself. Before I knew it, she said, "Look Mom! It's a "cuper-duper!!" (She makes up words, too.)
I was so focused on "making something" that I completely ignored the fact that my child A) loves blocks and B) has a huge imagination. She taught me a huge lesson about how important imaginitve play is for children of all ages, and that I should probably use mine more.
Once I came to my senses, she I and sat together and just created. We built towers, and castles, and so much more. We both love how the ROK Blocks can be built up and out, as opposed to other sets that can only go up.
I love that all the Rokenbok products come with a lifetime guarantee. In this day and age when toys are getting more and more expensive while being produced with less quality, a lifetime guarantee is something that I find extremely valuable.
In the end, we are all having a great time with the ROK Blocks. I did even manage to make that airplane!
