Zometool- Creator 1 Review & a Giveaway

0 Shares

Made for kids, used by Nobel laureates. Zometool is the smart building “toy” that connects art, science and play.

I review a lot of items.  And currently about 85% of the items I review are being stored in my raffle box.  Once a year my son’s preschool holds a gigantic carnival and raffle to raise money for financially disadvantaged children.  This year, a friend and I are in charge organizing the raffle.  Yes, it is handy that I receive a multitude of items.   Unfortunately, for my children it is a lot of “look at this!” and then I quickly whisk it away.

As soon as I showed this amazing, imaginative based toy to my five year old son, he asked with trepidation, “Mom, are we going to keep this?”.  His comment was so cute and I immediately smiled, because I knew this toy was a perfect fit for my boys. Certainly, there was no doubt we would be keeping this toy!

What is Zometool’s Creator 1?  It has such an usual name…

Creator 1 is a plastic case full of various sized plastic pieces.  Simple. Brilliant.  And my boys idea of creation heaven.  My boys love to build their own ideas from toys.  I’m not sure if it’s a boy thing, as I know I didn’t play with toys in this manner.  But my boys must build.  They must create.  When they saw the contents of this Creator 1 box, there was a collective gasp of awe and then an immediate frenzy of building.  I had to clear out of the way so the creativity could have full reign!

After I snapped a few shots, I decided to capture a few of the phrases being shouted, shrieked, and proclaimed as they built.

“This is going to blow your mind!”

“I’m making a big creature.”

“I need to make my own spaceship.”

“This is my biggest battleship.”

Again, if you look at the contents- there are no battleships.  There are no spaceships.  Zometool products and system kits foster imagination and originality.  With this type of toy the options are limitless.  Yes, there are instructions and directions on how to create specific items, but my boys were not interest in this option.  They are the same way with Legos.  They might create the object meant to be made, but usually they will just do their own thing.

These smart building kits are the sort of toys that help create future scientists!

For kids that may be intrigued by science, architecture, art or engineering, or anyone who likes to ponder with hands-on engagement these Zometool toys are a perfect fit.

I must admit prior to this review I had never heard of Zometool.  They are not the type of toys that are available at your local Target store unfortunately.  Of course, in this day and age everything is available thanks to the internet!

Even my three year old, limited by his age, still had a wonderful time building with his big brothers.

As you can see my eight year old takes the matter very seriously!

Made in Colorado, these Zometool toys have unsurprisingly received a multitude of toy awards.  With names like Creator 1 ($59), Ice Crystals & Stars ($25), The Buckyball ($29) and Pyramid Puzzle ($10), the Zometool patented product line is both fun and focused and can be enjoyed solo or with the whole family.  Kids open the box, start to build and then pause. That moment of “hmmm” is the door to discovery; “figuring it out” is the addicting pleasure of every Zometool toy.
