My $0.02

I wish that I could give one of these sets to every mom who reads my blog. With a set like this, you won’t need another to keep them busy and entertained. I was so surprised to see the Rok Works Construction set exceed my expectations. I’ll be the first to admit that I was a loyal Lego fan when it came to construction sets for kids. In fact I was so upset when I missed the huge Amazon Lego sale this past December and spent several ours looking for a construction set for the kids. I couldn’t find the set I wanted from Lego so I settled on another brand.

Initially my kids were so excited about the projects that were included in the construction tub, but that excitement soon fizzled out. We completed one project and soon after they moved on to using the pieces to make weapons. While I thought the idea of a bucket full of tools and plastic parts would be the toy that would hold their attention for months to come, it had missed it’s mark and I didn’t understand why. I found that I had wasted my money and had to virtually beg them to build the projects they were intended for.

That was until they had a chance to review the Rokenbok line.

Rokenbok Review

Here’s what stood out for my boys:

  • They loved all the moving parts from the conveyor belts to the loading dump trucks.
  • The flashing lights and squealing sounds just sucked them right in.
  • Individual areas of the construction site that allowed them to work together.

Here’s what stood out for me:

  • I love the moving parts. The trucks allow them to pick up things from one end of the construction site and transport them to another.
  • The remote controls are super smart and don’t interfere with the other when being used by multiple children. My youngest son tried to hijack my oldest sons truck using his remote but it did not work. Love this feature!
  • There are several things to do on the construction site which allows the kids to play separately, with the same toy, in the same area, without getting on each others nerves. Love this feature too!!

Since receiving our set the boys have played with it daily with out me having to ask or encourage. Each day after school they’ve played with it for hours. They’ve even started using the Power Sweeper and Loader to pick up trash particles from the carpet.

We love Rokenbok and because of that one lucky reader will win a Rokenbok prize pack.

    My son would love all of the sets!!! I think he’d love the construction set best but he would go nuts over the monorail with power dump.

    What a great toy. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I have all boys, so there have been a few toys I just knew they would and didn’t. When they were little it was Little People because that was my way of buying dolls. Turns out they do love Playmobil now, though!

    I thought my daughter would love her huge wooden 3 story dollhouse complete with furniture and, of course, dolls. But it always took such alot of time to keep in order and collected all the dustballs that our wood floors love to spread around … A simpler, smaller version would have been much more fun for her.

    Live and learn!

    Mega Blocks – thought our son would love them, but he doesn’t enjoy them as much. At least not yet…he just gets frustrated when he can’t stack them together. My husband and I like to build with them, only to have them knocked over by our son. 🙂

    I bought my kids Lincoln logs and the old wooden blocks to make houses and all different things they were only interested in throwing them while my husband and I created masterpieces. 🙂

    Hmmm… Well, We don’t buy a lot of toys and they love playing with the ones that we have. But, I thought I would enter anyway. 🙂 Thanks!

    There are several toys that I’ve bought for my kids that were toys that I liked as a kid but I guess I’ll be the only one that likes them. Oh well. Nostalga then.

    I bought my oldest son Lego Creationary for Christmas, knowing that all 3 of my boys love to play with legos… The game has come out of the box the two times we had guests over and I managed to talk him into playing… he was the first to get bored both times. 🙁

    I was so excited to buy my children the wii fit, I saw it had games on there like Hula hoop etc and thought it would be a fun Family game ( family time) Well I ended up being the only one in this house trying to get fit 😉 They will stick with bowling!
