I planned on reviewing a wagon from CSN (remember I said it was in the Riding Toys section?), but they were out of the particular one we wanted. That’s ok – I’ve been wavering back and forth over Wedgits for a long time – are they really as great as everyone says? Will M actually play with them? Are they easy to use, yet still challenging enough to keep him engaged?
Yes, yes, and yes. I finally decided to get them and try them out. We opted for the Deluxe set, which has 30 pieces. I’m glad we did because they are so much fun that we all play with them and we need as many pieces as we can get! :)
These are amazing building blocks (I guess you’d call them blocks??) – they fit inside one another in a variety of ways, and you can even wedge them together so they “lock” as M says. This set came with a book that shows several designs to copy. This is great reasoning work for M, since he really has to think about what to do first, second and so on in order to duplicate the design shown. He also enjoys just “building with my imagination”. :)
I wish we’d ordered a set of design cards so we’d have more to work on. That’s on our Christmas list for now.
If you’ve been wondering about Wedgits yourself, I definitely encourage you to go ahead and get a set. They are a bit pricey, but well worth it in my opinion. We are very happy with our Wedgits and they are something that will grow along with M. I envision him playing with these for years to come!
I was given a complimentary set of Wedgits from csnstores.com in return for writing a review. This review is my honest opinion of the product I received.
