Build-A-Sport Blocks Are Just in Time for the Olympics

Parents and children can make connections to the Olympics through creative play with Sportos Build-A-Sport Blocks. Build-A-Sport Blocks let children build designs of their favorite international sports figures. Create an athlete dunking a basketball. Craft a soccer player about to kick a goal. Design a duo of volleyball players spiking and passing the ball. Construct a skier crouching to take a jump.

Build-A-Sport Blocks allow children to create what they see in the world of sports and recreate what they do on the playground and playing fields. Children enhance small motor skills and pattern recognition while creating block figures; they can then augment gross motor development as they get up and move to imitate the little athlete’s actions.

Made of sustainable rubber wood, Build-A-Sport Blocks come in a combination of straight and curved block pieces that allow children to recreate the shapes made by an athlete’s body. The set includes 71 blocks and 48 design cards to guide play.
