The Scoop

With 48 wooden pieces (including nuts, bolts, drilled bars to connect, and a child-size screwdriver), this classic building set gives kids all they need to tinker and build! Printed right on the sturdy storage box are building plans for a crane, motorcycle, airplane, and race car to get the fun started. With some imagination and a few creative twists and turns, kids can make hundreds more amazing structures, too! Any time kids play with this durable set, they'll be building fine motor skills, problem-solving skills, and hand-eye coordination. Included extension activities guide parents to educational activities that also build early math skills.

Disapointed with a consistent lack of quality

By 

from Northern NJ

Comments about Melissa & Doug Construction Building Set in a Box:

Bought the Construction Building Set for use by a 4 year old, but I was disappointed by the lack of consistent quality amongst the parts. While some of the screws and nuts went together easily, many did not. The problem is clearly that the threads were not properly cut for too many parts. I could probably correct these problems if a tap and die set were available but such is not the case. For a building set for a young child to be success and not a frustration all parts must go together easily, but with that not being the case the set I purchased can not be used.

This is a Christmas gift for my 2 1/2 yr. old grandson. I am sure it will keep very busy. He loves anything he can put together and take apart.

Great construction kit

By 

from Colorado

Verified Buyer

Comments about Melissa & Doug Construction Building Set in a Box:

I bought this product thinking it would match up with the Melissa and Doug "My Toolbox" as the pieces look identical. It doesn't. The screws in one are a little thinner than the other, so the nuts slide off. Also a couple of the screw heads were not attached and I had to glue them. By itself it is a great set. Perfect for a 3 year old that like to build.

Discover Countless Ways To Play
  • Have kids sort the pieces by color, shape, or size. Then count and compare the groups. Which has the most pieces? Which has the fewest?

  • Connect a few of the pieces (such as a bolt, block, and nut) and have kids copy your creation.

  • Use the pieces to construct and identify different letters of the alphabet.

  • Build two simple structures that are nearly identical. Have kids find the differences. Help them to "fix" one of the two so they are exactly the same.

  • Build a more complex construction and challenge kids to take it apart as quickly as possible.

  • Ask the child to attach as many pieces as possible to the sides of the box. Add to the challenge by establishing specific rules, such as "No yellow pieces on this side."

  • Help the child to create unique machines. Encourage imagination by asking the child to solve a creative challenge ("How will we cross this rocky stream?") or make the wackiest robot possible!
