Clear and colorful step-by-step instructions will get you started while leaving you a wide universe open for exploration and free-play.

About Zometool:
The quality and addictive fun were noticed this year by several prestigious award organizations. Dr. Toy named Creator 3 and Ice Crystals & Stars her 2012 Best Picks Winners. Creative Child Awards gave Creator 1 its 2012 Top Toy of the Year Award in the Build Construction Catory and 2012 Kids Product of the Year Award in the Kids Educational Product Category. And since the kits are made in Colorado, they were inducted into the Made in the USA Hall of Fame by the Made in the USA Foundation.

Not to brag, but Zometool has been used by some of the smartest people in the world from NASA
scientists to Nobel Prize winners. The same balls and primary color struts placed in the hands of middle schoolers have been known to open up a new world of 3-D thinking. Educators, parents, scientists, artists and college grads enjoy playing with the building pieces as much as the 6 to 16 year olds.


My daughter really had fun playing with the Zometool.  She started by copying from the book, but finished up by creating on her own.  Not only is this a good toy for quiet time, or rainy days if you use the enclosed booklet you will be able to do projects together with your child.



GREAT GIFT IDEA!  Be sure to visit their website and see the other kits available.  Ranging in price from $10- $62 there is a kit available for every budget and interest level.  Oh, and here is the link to the Zometool Facebook page and Zometool Twitter page.

The winner of this giveaway will receive their choice of Crazy Bubbles or Pyramid Puzzle.  See the pictures and descriptions below.
Pyramid Power:

Pyramid Power • Ages 10+ • $10
The perfect stocking stuffer for any math whiz on your list, this mesh pouch holds 37 pieces that can be combined to create up to 64 different pyramids (aka tetrahedra).

Polar FA20 Activity Watch Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Well, I am out of the hospital, but I am not allowed to be very active yet, so I asked my daughter to test out this new item. It is an Activity Watch. What a great item for Get Out Get Active! The Polar FA20 counts your daily physical activity. First you need to set the basic information. The date, units (metric or imperial), your weight, height, birth date, and male or female. Place the FA20 on your wrist to measure your physical activity 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This watch monitors your activity and gives you feedback about how you are doing. Everyone should be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, and the FA20 helps you achieve this. Throughout your day you can check and see if you are having a Lazy Day (active less than 30 minutes), Easy Day (active 30 to 60 minutes), Active Day (active 60 to 75 minutes) or an Intensive Day (active more than 75 minutes). You can also record your training sessions to learn more about how your body respon
