Alicia says, “I loved that when I pulled out our bag of Simbrix, all three of my big kids descended upon the table and drove right in. It’s been very quiet at the table when the Simbrix are out–what mom wouldn’t love that!?” Read the rest of her review at Learning Well.
Lis says, “What exactly ARE Simbrix? They are a two dimensional pixelated art supply, most similar to fusible beads, but they don’t fall off a peg board mid-design (Hurrah! So much less frustration!). In fact, there is NO peg board. The beads are square, instead of round, and lock together to create whatever design your child thinks up or wants to illustrate from their learning.” Read the rest of her review at Acorns ~ Nuggets of Gold.
Karla says, “Rebecca and I have enjoyed creating pictures with Simbrix while we listen to audiobooks. It has been really great for honing her fine motor skills, especially that pincer grasp. I also appreciate that it challenges her to think creatively. I think this set would make a great Christmas gift! They are recommended for ages 5 and up. I enjoyed playing with them myself. I could even see elderly people enjoying them, in lieu of jigsaw puzzles or something like that.” Read the rest of her review at Roads to Everywhere.
Kristen says, “Thousands of square shaped plastic pieces in 17 different colors (including glow-in-the-dark) make up the Simbrix Expert Kit. These pieces interlock together, so they are perfect for children developing their fine motor skills. Since the pieces interlock, children don’t have to worry about getting a design or picture just right while they’re being creative. Any mistakes or areas that they don’t like can be quickly and easily disassembled and replaced. My children become absolutely engrossed in their pictures and designs when Simbrix is out. It’s a perfect quiet time activity!” Read the rest of her review at Smithspirations.
Lisa says, “The Simbrix Expert Kit contains 4,000 interlocking fusible squares which can be put together to create pixelated art. Once in place, the creation can then be ironed, thus fusing the beads together to create a “permanent” version of the design that was created. Because the pieces are interlocking, your child can design, and then take apart their design and try something else. The Simbrix help your child to create 2D images for anything their imagination can design.” Read the rest of her review at Farm Fresh Adventures.
Heather says, “Since it is summer time and homeschooling is on the back burner for now, we just had creative fun with Simbrix. I can see how I could easily adapt it into a kinesthetic learning tool. We could build a whale or starfish as we are learning about ocean life in science, we could build a replica of a burning bush as we read about Moses during bible time, or even create the flag of the country we are studying about in geography. The possibilities are endless – and it’s possible to even create 3D objects from Simbrix […]
