What It Is

Fisher-Price's Trio building system is specially designed to make building easier for even the smallest of hands. Kids can feel and hear the click when they've connected the building pieces, and the pieces will stay together throughout play, only coming apart when kids are ready to take them apart. Each set can be built and rebuilt in a variety of ways, letting kids build whatever they can imagine! And the pieces from the different sets can be mixed and matched for even more imaginative building.

The Trio Girls Starter Set is specially designed to let girls build their creativity. While "conventional wisdom" has suggested that girls don't like construction play, nothing could be further from the truth. But rather than building mechanical toys, machines or other traditionally "boy" objects, sets that encourage girls to construct items that reflect their individuality and interests are increasingly popular. About time toymakers realized this-and they have in a big way.

This girls' set includes bricks, sticks, and panels that are easy to attach and hold together for big building play. Girls can build butterflies, puppies, kittens, dream houses, and so much more! The 94-piece set includes specially colored bricks, sticks, and panels (lots of pink) and specialty parts, such as a figure, car and chassis, eyes, and a durable tub for storage.

Aside from refining a child's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills, this building set is also a great way to engage girls in creative play.
