Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome like the old days This reminded me of a toy I had as a child so I ordered it for my 4 year old grandson. It is real wood, beautifully made. There are 40 cards to make 40 different designs. My husband did a random one with the 4-year-old and it was tough because it required turning some of the blocks on a 45 degree angle under the top surface. Oops, I thought. Too hard for him. But I went through all the patterns and only 10 of the 40 require using the 45 degree angle so it's a toy he can grow with because those other 10 cards require the ability to think in 3 dimensions. I put a dot on all the card he can do now (30). He's still a LITTLE young to do them independently but it's a fun activity to do with an adult. He can also play with them just as blocks, obviously. I would recommend the manufacturer put a dot on the harder cards. Other than that, it's a beautiful learning toy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect activity for Alzheimer's client When even 24-piece jigsaw puzzles recently became too difficult for my 81-year-old Alzheimer's client, something made me remember how much my grandson enjoyed his Pattern Play blocks. I bought a set for my client and she loves it. Unlike jigsaw puzzles with confusing tabs and bits of pictures, the solid pieces and pattern cards make it possible for her to complete a design herself. But the process is still challenging enough to keep her interested. She loves the bright colors and also "free plays" with the blocks. I highly recommend this for family members or clients with dementia who still enjoy activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from happy kid = happy mom We got this as a gift for my 4 year old. Its a very engaging toy and keeps her busy and stimulated for hours. She demands that i participate with her at times but also wants to copy or create patterns on her own without any help or supervision. We've just had this for a week, and my little one has already recreated all the designs in the cards... to top that she has grasped the concept of repeated pattern and starts from two sides consecutively when she tries to form a new pattern herself. Pair this with team oomi zoomi cartoons, your child will grasp the concept of patterns without you putting much effort in it. I would recommended this toy without reservation for early math skills! and thank you Mindware, the concept and execution is laudable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this puzzle! My higher level students love this puzzle! They choose a picture card and try to duplicate the pattern. A bit difficult for most 4's but my 5's are figuring it out w assistance. It's colorful and has many possibilities for completion. The patterns are cool. I like to provide some challenging puzzles in my classroom for higher students.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for all ages We use it daily in our rehab/ therapy gym. We have people from 65-102 years old that might use it during the day. Some of them find it difficult and some enjoy the challenge and others enjoy the simplicity and something different to occupy their time. It is a fun way to interact with our patients. I do suggest offering pattern cards that are bigger and or laminated. They do show their wear after awhile. Our clients would like the cards to be larger to read easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Educational My great nephew has just turned three and is very interested in building and putting together items. He has throughly enjoyed solving the shape color problems. It keeps him engaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colorful, Challenging, & Fun! I purchased this item as a gift for my three and a half year old granddaughter. She is able to create the more simple designs with very little help. She also had fun using the blocks on their own for building & stacking. The only things I would recommend are some kind of secure carrier for the blocks and cards and base, and that the design cards be laminated. They were already somewhat flimsy after just a couple of uses. All in all, a great learning tool for my granddaughter, and even lots of fun for adults!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from totally fun Oh my gosh, my kids from 3 years old to 5th grade just love this, fun, entertaining and educational. They compete to see who can come up with the coolest pattern, thanks, it is just great, I bought 3, one for me here for the grandkids, one for my granddaughter teacher and her boyfriend who is also a teacher, they were excited to get it.
