As a stay-at-home-mom I’m always looking for things that our daughter can do on her own for when I need to do housework, care for baby sister or work on my commissions . Plus-Plus is so great for kids. We got this with our Timberdoodle Curriculum this year. Works motor skills, creativity and is just fun all around. It comes with a booklet to show how to make certain things or you can build whatever you want. As cool as this is I did find some downsides. The pieces are sometimes hard to put together and take apart. Besides that I’d definitely recommend these. Our daughter probably spent about 2 hours building to her heart’s content before she was ready to move on to something else. After she builds things she plays with what she’s made. We are able to come up with interesting stories for our creations and add on by just building another item. Certainly, a win for creativity, motor skills and story telling.
