This 30th Anniversary Limited Edition set includes 30 wooden blocks that come in a wide variety of shapes. Children can use the set to create any structure they can imagine. Hape’s wooden blocks are very durable and will allow for years of use. In addition, for every set purchased, Hape will send a toy to a child in need in Afghanistan, Syria, Nepal, China, and Zimbabwe. This gift promotes engineering thinking and design by encouraging children to come up with their own designs to create with the blocks. If their structures cannot stand, children then must reassess their design and either make improvements or start over with a new design. Hape offers a classic toy that allows children to develop spatial reasoning and design skills through everyday play.

 

Engineering thinking and design practices the gift encourages children to do or learn about:

Generate ideas, try the solution, create the prototype or process, redesign the solution, make improvements to the solution, communicate the solution, make observations, recognize patterns

 

Additional practices and skills needed by engineers that were addressed by the gift: Spatial reasoning, creative thinking, problem solving, design
