Znapeez (pronounced “Snap-ease”) are geometric tiles for kids that are “znapped” together to form fun and interesting designs. There are two sets, one designed for boys and the other for girls (named “Action” and “Fashion” respectively). Each set includes several different types of tiles and colored connectors. Each tile has notches which the connectors can easily snap into place.
Anyone who has played with Legos or TinkerToys can relate to the fun that can be had with an open-ended creation set like Znapeez. There are a variety of shapes such as triangles, squares, and rectangles, which allow kids to freely create from their imagination.
Each set includes a design guide, but you’ll find that most kids will simply enjoy making their own creations on the fly.
It may not be reasonable to expect kids to create final products as impressive as shown in the advertising, but we don’t think that will matter to kids who will quickly become absorbed in the creation process. This kind of toy sparks creative thinking and improves manual dexterity.
Znapeez has a familiar feel to it, as it could be categorized alongside other toy building sets (see below), but it is also unique in its own right. Unlike Legos, for example, Znapeez are not bulky, which means you can create flat objects which can be worn, such as a cape or vest.
We like Znapeez, and we’re pretty sure your kids will, too. Perhaps the only “con” we can find with the product is that it isn’t available in stores as of this writing, meaning you’ll have to endure shipping costs and delays.
If your child likes toy building sets, they’ll like Znapeez.
There is no shortage of toy building sets, such as K’Nex or TinkerToy. Recent reviews here include ImagiPen, Bendaroos 3D, Gemmies, and Morpheez. While there are all solid products in their own right, they are not quite the same as Znapeez.
