2011 Holiday Gift Guide-Nanoblocks and Air Picks



    I’m sure all of you are scrambling to find as many of the items on your children’s holiday wishlist as possible.  Unfortunately, most of us have had to scale back on the amount of money that we spend during the holidays and are always looking for great deals that won’t put too much of a dent in our budget.

    As the holiday season lurks right around the corner, there is nothing that kids like more than building blocks.  Presented by the Ohio Art Company, Nanoblock® building sets boast that they are the smallest building blocks on the market currently and their size allows for even greater detail when building whatever your imagination can conjure up.  They employ a patented double feather design that allows pieces to lock firmly together.


    Another great product that will save parent from having to pay for guitar lessons for their kids is Air Pick®s.  Air Picks® contain guitar riffs of iconic rock songs that play with a simple flick of the pick-much like one would strum a guitar string.  It is designed for children ages 6 and up and retails for only $9.99.  Kids can pretend to be their own lead guitarist without even having to ever use an actual guitar.


    I had the opportunity to review both of these products with my children, ages 5 and 8.  My sons really enjoyed being able to create rock guitar sounds by simply flicking the Air Picks® in the air like a real guitar player.  It was pretty easy to create the guitar riffs and I even had fun imitating the sounds of my favorite rock bands. 

    Although they are intended for ages 6 and up, my five year old had no problem playing with them and creating the riffs.  The Nanoblocks® allowed me to create something spectacular with a lot of detail.  Can you guess what it is from the picture below?  I would like to add, however, that I would not recommend the Nanoblocks for younger children because the blocks are very tiny. 


    For more information on Nanoblock®, make sure you visit their website.  Also, make sure you add both of these great gifts to your list this year!
