Top 5 Best Building & Construction Toys for Kids

We love Building Toys!

Construction and building toys offer an open ended play experience that allows children to be creative, problem solve and focus while playing!

Building play encourages an understanding of structure, balance and weight ratios.

It involves children using patience and perseverance to create what they have in their mind and put it into action with the tools they have.

5 BIG reasons to get your kids building toys

3. Matador

Matador is a construction set with wooden blocks that can be connected via pins. The idea was generated over 100 years ago when a father watched his children getting frustrated while playing with wooden blocks; any complex structure they tried to build simply collapsed.

Being an engineer, he designed a toy wooden construction set made of blocks that could be connected with wooden pins. 

The possibilities are limitless and while each set comes with its own building instructions, Matador will also encourage your child to put together their own ideas.


4. Quadrilla

The Quadrilla Marble run is one of our all time favourite toys for the awe inspiring play it creates along with it educational value.

Quadrilla is a award-winning system of wooden blocks, tracks and accessory pieces that create a path for marbles to travel down. 

Beautifully crafted wooden tracks and a rainbow of coloured blocks, each with a different function, are the starting point for an infinite number of designs.

The construction possibilities are only limited by your child's imagination!

5. Wooden Blocks

Wooden blocks are the ultimate open-ended toy for children, they offer so much play potential. Babies, toddlers and young children love to build with wooden blocks, they stack them up, knock them down, balance the blocks and build unique creative structures like a farm house for they toy animals!

  • I find that simple wooden blocks are a great toy that spans many ages and encourages sibling play and connection.
  • Wooden building blocks are available in many different styles from just simple pieces of wood to blocks with clear windows, gem stone blocks, mirror blocks and much more!
