Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable and more complex than you think puzzle game Hey, we received Mental Blox for review-all thoughts are our own. Adults who have taken any machine drawing classes can relate to the premise of this puzzle and game. Take an object and envision how it looks from the top, front, side left, side right or the bottom. Mental Blox adds a building dimension to this where the many blocks in the box all fit together in some configuration. It's not an interlocking puzzle, rather the blocks need to look like they do on a corresponding card. Start with the first cards and it's pretty simple. Our 7 year old could do the front facing and top cards pretty easily. Once things shifted to a side right or side left view it got more challenging for him. There are 40 different card puzzles and he got to the 11th card without any help, but then had to tag up for a little assistance. Some of the puzzle pieces are rounded, triangular, square, arrow shaped and beyond. The cards are coded by their ease, green, yellow and red. Adults will have to take a moment to look at all of the pieces and figure out how the red cards are accomplished. For example, card 40 has 9 blocks that need to fit together. Our five year old had trouble with the first cards and is a bit too young for them now. He just turned five, we'll try again in a month or so. For the price point this is a very nice, critical thinking puzzle/game that will assist kids in looking at things from a different angle. It's a good puzzle comparable to chess. Granted chess has thousands of moves and possibilities, but that too helps kids know that there is more than one way to approach something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love! We received this to review and we absolutely LOVE it & highly recommend it. The shapes are large in size making it easier to grasp for those with fine motor skill delays. This is fantastic for special needs kids. Kids working on copy/design skills or coordination. It's great for any kids (even without special needs) as it is a fun game and works on kep developmental skills. Everything stores easily in the box. There are plenty of building activity flashcards to do. I love that each flashcard includes additional instructions to try after you have built the model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Resource! I am so pleased with this product! As an educator and homeschooler, I look for resources that meet Common Core Standards and Mental Blox fit the category! These colorful blocks help children master listening skills, following directions verbal communication and so much more. Although the age recommendation for this product is 5-13, my 3 year old did very well and loved it as much as my 5 year old! I love how the cards have various degrees of difficulty and allow students the ability to work on higher and lower level cards. I am extremely happy with this product and I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun for all Once your child gets the hang of the game, like any other game, they are going to want to play it more often. However, this game, unlike a lot of other games, makes them think unlike other games. Which in my opinion is a win - win situation. You can play this game as individuals or as teams. Some kids are going to catch on a little quicker, while it will be a challenge for others. That's the great thing about the Mental Blox Game though, the game is great for all different skill levels.
