LUX Small 88 Piece Set includes 88 uniquely-shaped pieces that can be used to build all kinds of designs. The pieces are X-shaped, with a hole in the middle with hinges on all four sides where pieces connect together. LUX Blox provide endless options for building, because they are designed to allow children to build models that imitate designs seen in nature. The pieces can either lock together or move depending on the chosen design. Each individual piece is made to bend without breaking. The unique shape of each piece allows for innumerable designs with the only limit being one’s own imagination. The set does not include printed instructions, but the website offers a few basic designs with step-by-step pictures to spark children’s imagination. The set fosters engineering design by giving children a space for creativity and room to design based on their own ideas. These building blocks are unlike any other and extend the range of design possibilities for hours of fun!
