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.

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!

Great product for a great price!

By

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

My son received this product as a gift and while building the different pieces, we learned that we were missing one of the flat 2 hole pieces that is required to build the airplane. The only item we can't build and my son really wants a to build the airplane. Surprised that a piece was missing from this product.

Great toy, but...

By 

from Lander, WY

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

As a stand-alone set, it's wonderful and my 5 year old loves it. However, I recently found out the hard way that it's not compatible with another wooden tool kit that's also a Melissa & Doug product. The "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" wooden tool kit to be precise. My son received both of these for Christmas and I already combined them thinking that the pieces would work together since they were both made by Melissa & Doug. It's pretty disappointing and now I have to weed out the Mickey Mouse misfits. Also, even the pieces from one set don't always work together if the threads aren't 100% carefully aligned, and even then it's anyone's guess which set of holes on the cube the screws will go all the way through. It's a good way to promote fine motor skills and problem solving, I guess. Bottom line, I'd recommend it to a friend, but only if their four year old is strong enough to force the wooden screws through.

Not just for children, perfect for birds.

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

I have purchased your construction set many times. It is perfect for the owner of a parot they love chewing them up and they're very easy to hang in cages. As I mentioned not just for children.

Pieces too thin and break easily

By 

from Saskatchewan

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

Our son got this set for his birthday a month ago. Two pieces got broken within a day, and another one just bit the dust yesterday. Our older son got a similar set at a similar age 6 years ago and nothing has broken, but between then and now the flat building pieces have become thinner and now can be broken easily by an impatient 4 year old guest pulling a bolt out at an angle (bending the piece until it snapped) or by being stepped on by a child. Make the pieces more sturdy, like you used to!

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.
