Grippies Builders Party

Aug 1-6, 2016 - Grippies Builders Party

As a parent, grandparent or early childhood education professional that works with toddlers, you know how important it is to stimulate a child's senses, imagination and brain in their earliest years. Guidecraft has created a fun way to introduce STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) exploration and skill development with their new building system created especially for toddlers, Grippies!

Grippies Builders are open-ended, magnetic building toys designed for toddlers 18 months and older. Children use these colorful rods and balls to begin to understand and explore the properties of magneticism. The four unique soft-touch textures on the rods are perfect for tactile exploration and their chunky size just right for small hands. Grippies Builders provide a great introduction to toddlers of the basic principles of engineering and geometry in a fun and imaginative way.

    My daughter LOVES this toy, and so do I! It's super fun to play with and you can be creative and learn how to build at the same time. STEM toys are a wonderful way to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math all rolled into one. I love seeing my daughter’s level of concentration while playing with this toy. This is a definitely a winner in our books!
