Let Your Creativity Fly With ZOOB 500

ZOOB® is a building set with a difference—the pieces move after kids put them together. So kids can play with their ZOOB creations, instead of just looking at them. ZOOB pieces snap, click, and pop together to form joints that rotate, limbs that extend, axles that spin, and lots more. Kids can create simple models in minutes, or get absorbed and spend hours at a time. There's no limit to what they can build: from animals to aliens, from dinosaurs to DNA.

The ZOOB 500 includes 500 ZOOB pieces, a plastic storage case, four play pads and nine instruction guides, and every ZOOB piece comes with a lifetime guarantee. The play pads grip ZOOB pieces and hold them in place, but also let kids move and rotate the pieces. And since ZOOB is based on real-life systems, its built-in educational value encourages kids to learn, explore, and create using the most important tool of all: their imaginations.

What makes ZOOB different from other building sets?

  • The pieces move after kids put them together
  • It's great for boys and girls
  • Versatility—unlimited, open-ended building options
  • Intuitive—fast to learn and easy to use
  • Built-in educational value

500 ZOOB pieces in a sturdy storage case with 4 play pads and 9 guides with instructions for geometric shapes, weaves, and 37 creations.

My Take on this Set
I tried out a previous ZOOB Traveler set in the past and completely fell in love with ZOOB. Not only because it awakened the creativity of my own daughters, but Also because I was able to use it in numerous ways with the students that I work with on a daily basis. With this larger set I am able to do so much more and create so many more things. Recently, I had a professional development workshop that I was facilitating and I brought this set with me. I ended up placing pieces of the ZOOB 500 on each of the tables and let everyone know that they could create whatever they wanted to with the pieces there. You should have seen how excited these adults were, it was like they were children again. ZOOB allows the inner-child to be awakened, and really the sky is the limit when it comes to what you can create and what ZOOB can allow you to do. I highly recommend this set and ZOOB in general to one and all, it is by far one of the best new toys I have come across!
