Yippie to Grippies! GuideCraft Grippies Builders is the coolest toy for toddlers and this is my honest review! Seriously, any toy from Guidecraft that I review I totally get excited and sometimes I worry if I am overrating and let me tell you that I am not!.When I review products the key points that I take note of are whether or not the kids will have fun and whether or not parents would get some breather when the kids are playing with the toy and most of all whether the price range is apt for the product. Is it worth the price?
With all that is said, let’s get back to the review of this product Shall we?!
My little Cutie getting ready for a hands-on experience!
Grippies Builders by Guidecraft is “fun and educational” toy for toddlers 18 months and older. Grippies Builders are open-ended, magnetic building toys with colorful rods and balls.Toddlers will definitely have amazing fun and you have to trust me when I say parents would equally love it. I have come to love Guidecraft’s products. The quality, finish and most of all the entertainment they provide the kids gets an A plus!

GuideCraft Grippies Builders 30 piece set comes with soft plastic rods and balls, with 4 unique soft-touch textures. Kids will learn the difference between linear and round shapes. Different patterns on the plastic rods help kids to touch and feel different textures. The best part is they are “Magnetic’!
As soon as we opened the box and started playing,we saw the magnetic feature, I must say I was thrilled :). Kids will learn about attraction and repulsion(of course they cannot sense that concept immediately but soon they will). My daughter got mad when she could not put two plastic rods together(They repelled) :). We were visiting my friends on the evening that we received this toy so I wanted to put this to test. My friend was kind enough to let me test this out with her kids!
All the kids loved it!
Kids will learn to build 2D structures and progressively advance to building 3D structures. Sensory toys are very important for the development of toddler’s fine motor skills. The small movement of hands and wrists will help improve toddlers fine motor skills.
Builders like these will help kids to not only pick and stack but also plan what action they are going to do with the magnetic plastic rods. Same concept goes for the building blocks and the importance of introducing these to the toddlers!

Overall our experience with the toy set has been wonderful. I would recommend it for every toddler. Whether you are planning to buy a new toy for your kid or planning for a birthday gift for a kid you have a better choice now!
Special thanks to wonderful people at Guidecraft for providing us the opportunity to review. All the opinions are honest and my own!
