UBERARC!!! - ENDED!


My 11 year old son LOVES to build. He has an engineer mind. He is always disassembling things around the house, just so he can see what makes them work. I have found remote controls, DVD players, toys... anything electrical... in pieces. He just loves to see how the mechanics work. Thankfully, he is very good at repairing his subjects.

For this reason, he loves K'Nex and anything similar to them. He can build anything his heart desires with his enormous K'Nex set. That is why he is going to be THRILLED with his new UberArc set he is getting for Christmas! My husband and I have played with it, so that I could write the review. But I have to say, the UberArc passes the K'Nex set by a mile. I love the blueprints that come with it! It really offers a taste of engineering- and even architecture to its audience. The pieces are easily managable- the perfect size for children OR grown ups!




UberStix offers many different sets, at all different skill levels. We got the largest set for my son, because we know it is the one that will present a challenge for him.

One of the other options available on the UberStix website is the Sailboat! Children are encouraged to upcycle everyday items in order to finish building the boat!

Building toys are great for hand-eye coordination, planning, creativity, persistance, and even patience! They also are very rewarding, allowing children to see that when they stick to a project with diligence, they will be rewarded in the end!


UberStix is giving away an Uber Pirate Ship to one lucky reader of Mingle Over Mocha! Parents and children LOVE going on a scavenger hunt for the items needed to complete the pirate ship!
