Move over Bob the Builder … there’s a new builder in town!

With the Squaregles Starter Kit from Squaregles, the building possibilities are endless! Designed for little constructors ages 4 and up, the kit includes 105 pieces to construct the most epic structures ever.

The neon-colored pieces include shapes like squares, triangles, and rectangles, as well as more unconventional shapes like slides and swinging doors. Some of these pieces are magnetic, such as the squares and triangles, while others come with paperboard panels for drawing, jumps, tracks, and tubes. The set is complete with blue and red “Oggs” named Bax and Wren, which little figurines that function as marbles. The Oggs can roll down ramps and even attach to the two included bodies, cars, and accessories.

This is the perfect set for littles ones with active hands. Although it can be difficult to get all the pieces to stay together, busy hands will love building and rebuilding their own creations. There are so many pieces to choose from, it’s impossible to make the same structure more than once! Kids can get creative finding different ways to connect their magnetic sets, and even build bigger by connecting to another, compatible magnetic building set. 

For me, one of the best parts about this set is the included Oggs. After young builders have finished building their creation, the whole set turns into a different toy. Now, they can join friends (and/or family) to race their Oggs and see who finishes first. Although Squaregles can be a little bit pricier than other sets on the block, it’s truly a two-in-one product: a construction set and a marble run.
