Looking for a new way to play? Try suction construction. Squigz suck. Honestly, they do. Made from food grade silicon, they are a species all their own. Flexible and pliable. They connect not only to each other. But also to any solid, non-porous surface. That includes glass. Squigz attach to both horizontal and vertical surfaces. Build on mirrors and windows. All without leaving a trace of residue. Press two Squigz together. Air rushes out, pieces flex, then stick together. Once connected, the pieces stay connected until pulled apart with a resounding POP!
Squigz come in eight unique, versatile shapes. Each with its own identifying color and descriptive name. Want to know who’s who and how many of each come together to make one 50-piece Squigz Deluxe? Then meet Red Gobnobs(4), Orange Pips(6), Yellow Skooches(4), and Green Grippities(12). As well as Blue Doodles(14), Purple Yoinks(6), and the rare Dark Blue Wonkities(2) and White Zorbits(2).
Learning Through Play
The different shapes and colors in varying quantities invite sorting and counting. But that’s only the beginning. All this variety sparks curiosity and encourages creative thinking. Besides color, how is a Red Gobnob different from a Blue Doodle or Yellow Skooch? What would an Orange Pip and a Purple Yoink look like together? And when something doesn’t work out as planned, what then? Construction play naturally involves problem solving.
Connecting pieces develops eye-hand coordination. At the same time, pushing pieces together and pulling them apart strengthens muscles in the fingers and hands. Because the connections are tight, pulling pieces apart takes a strong pull. As children connect pieces to create structures, math comes into play. They experience differences in length, width, depth, and height as they add one shape after another. In this way they increase their understanding of dimensionality. They’re also developing spatial awareness. The fanciful names encourage storytelling.
Latex-free. BPA-free. Squigz Deluxe pair perfectly with the newer Squigz 2.0. Together children have even more creative building possibilities.
