“With over 15 years specializing in designing children’s games and toys, I understand how games should look, function and feel,” said Francois Poirier, CEO and founder of MakerBloks. “I also know how important longevity is. Parents want their kids to use games and toys for as long as possible. The best part about MakerBloks is its ‘hack-ability’–the instructions are just the beginning. Teaching kids about science and technology is a great start, but helping them to be more resourceful, more creative, and to feel empowered is what MakerBloks is really about.”
The inspiration behind MakerBloks comes from Francois going shopping one day for a toy made for a six year old that was not only fun, but easy-to-use while still being educational. So it’s no surprise that he created his own, as there aren’t many out in the market that accomplish all three of the listed.
Available for pre-order today via Kickstarter, the intro kits start at $45 and advanced kits, starting at $85 will include intro kits and additional blocks. With an accompanying app set to ship later in the fall, why not start today? Head over to their Kickstarter page today and get yourself some!
