Mental Blox 360 3D Building Game REVIEW
The Mental Blox 360 comes with plastic colourful blocks and card puzzles to follow. The card shows you which blocks to use, what the blocks should look like and the point of view you are supposed to use. The answers are on the backs of the cards.
Mental Blox 360 3D Building Game Review
I really liked the fact that the cards come in three levels, easy, medium and difficult which are colour coded.
Both my 4.5 year old and 6 year old sons enjoyed playing with the Mental Blox 360. The game is rated for 5+ but my youngest son didn’t have any difficulties completing the easy puzzles.
Mental Blox 360 3D Building Game Review
Once I explained the different points-of-view and helped them a little with the first ones. They were able to do most of the easy cards themselves. My 6 year old was able to do some of the medium cards as well. The cards get more difficult because more blocks are used in the building.
After awhile they got tired of following the card puzzles. It really is a workout for your brain. Some of them, I had to check the answers before helping the kids complete the puzzles.
Once they wanted a break from trying to figure out the puzzles they wanted to build freely with the blocks. The blocks are a nice large size and very colourful. They had fun stacking them and creating their own constructions.

As a parent, I love that this is an educational toy that is also open-ended so the toy can get hours and hours of use. Another great feature is that the box has the outline of all the blocks in the bottom so you can fit them all together so they go into the box nicely. This always helps you notice if a block has gone missing. My sons were always happy to help pick up the blocks because it was a puzzle to put them back in the box.
