Assembly & Instructions

What It Is

Mental Blox is an inherently simple but well-designed and highly engaging learning game for kids. The game features two sets of ten blocks in a variety of shapes and decorative patterns. It also includes 20 cards with 40 different reasoning puzzles in increasing difficulty. There are two ways to play. In the first, called Look and Build, players set up the blocks to match the image on the card, and then, solve the problem. Problems include answering questions, adding a block, rearranging the blocks, and more. The second mode of play, Listen and Build, is played exactly the same way, but the blocks are set up by one player giving verbal instructions without the other player seeing the card.

Why It’s Fun

This game works on several levels. First, it helps build deductive reasoning. It also works on spatial relationships, communication skills, problem-solving, planning, strategic thinking, and much more, all in a fun and engaging context. This is rich learning that's bright and colorful with enough challenge to keep kids coming back for more and enough fun not to feel like the sophisticated learning toy that it really is.

Who It’s For

Mental Blox is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The blocks measure two inches by two inches.

While this is a game designed for home use, it certainly has practical applications for classroom or tutoring use.
