When I read that the toy desigener Michael Grey had his undergraduate degree in Genetics and was inspired by the form of DNA when creating ZOOB, I have to admit that I was intrigued. The box claimed that the five different pieces could be combined to make 20 different types of connections so obviously trying out these twenty connections was our first step. We looked at the instruction manual provided in the kit and then found the perfect video which made it sooooo much more fun to discover this fun building toy.
We tried the Zoob Dude and Zoob Dog but by far our favorite was the ZOOB BUG!!! Build in two easy steps:
Step 1: Snap together legs.
Step 2: Build body.
Now the fun part. Snap the legs onto the body and start bending away to make legs and a deadly stinger.
Done with the instructions, we decided to let our imagination run wild! Next stop are the Z BRICKS which lets you combine ZOOB with LEGO using great adaptor bricks. After an afternoon with ZOOB, I understand why ZOOB Bot has won the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA).
Have fun building
