Who doesn't love a pocket size balancing game. Keep adding cactus pieces until it topples.
Balancing Blocks $48
We were gifted these a few years ago, and love them. The faceted design let you explore all types of balance.
These are a favorite at my house! The tubes come in an array of colors, and you will also find the larger version below great for kids 1-6.
Larger pieces are great for younger kids.
Rocket Ship Construction $27.99
Great for little hands, and easy to put together. 17 pieces with endless possibilities.
The OFF Bits Kit $14
These "real" tool building kits are great for ages 6+. They come in as assortment of vehicles, animals, and characters. Great price point too!
Another great travel sized game. You have 15 monkeys and the goal is to create the highest pyramid.
You can't go wrong with the wooden fishing game for both boys and girls ages 3+. I like the durability of this set, I've had others in the past that have fallen apart quickly.
Tegu Travel Pal $22
This pint size travel companion includes 6 blocks and its own carrying case.
Not only do these look rad sitting out on the shelf, they are carved from a single piece of wood and a great way of learning to build with balance. Here are a few more styles below.
Build tunnels over train tracks, drive cars over them as bridges, so many things to do with these guys.
Punch out the foam pieces to interconnect with plastic links.
These are perfect for the Montessori minded kids. These stackable pieces that lay flat in the wooden tray are a great learning tool for pre-school and up.
If I could be a kid again this would be on my Easter Basket wishes. These cool architect inspired building kits are the perfect stuffer for kids 8 and up.
