Pop! Popbo Blocs are soft plastic blocks you can pop on... and pop off!
Fun Park is the starter set for toddlers to start the fun building blocks journey with Popbo blocks. It includes 18 Popbo Blocs of five different shapes, as well as two character blocks.
Children will have tons of fun building trees, seesaws, and imaginary creatures!
The Fun Park set is compatible with all toy sets from our Popbo Blocs collection.
The fundamental senses of seeing, tasting, hearing, smelling & feeling encourage a child's curiosity and activate his mind to discover the things around his world.
Toys with strong stimuli in this category are tremendously important for the early stages of child development.
Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor skills are those smaller actions like picking things up between the thumb and finger or using the toes to wriggle or the lips and tongue to taste and feel objects.
Gross Motor Skills
Gross motor skills are larger movements involving the arm, leg, or feet muscles or the entire body - toys that enhance kicking, crawling, running, and jumping are meant to train a child's gross motor skills.
Logical training enables babies to make connections between pieces of information. Toys like puzzles and building blocks can strengthen a child's intelligence of logic, sequence, conceptualization, reasoning and problem solving.
Creativity is fostered in the early stages of a child's development. Colors, shapes, learning how to draw, getting familiar with music and rhythm, all goes to aid the growth of a child's creativity.
Linguistic Intelligence is the ability to use sound and language to express himself and to understand other people while a child grows up. Toys that enhance sensitivity to the meaning of words, sounds, rhythms and inflections are good for linguistic development.
A healthy child should be able to control and express his emotion. Feeling being loved and protected develops his sense of security. Toys that can become a child's pal and help him express emotion are very important for a child to learn how to interact effectively with others with mutual trust.
Communication Skills is the ability to interact appropriately with others. Good communication skills lead a child to perform cooperative tasks and become productive team members.
Self-Esteem is an overall sense of achievement a child feels from the important people around him, particularly parents and peers. When a child can complete the task offered by a toy, he feels good of himself. It helps build up a stronger self-esteem with a better judgment about his own worth.
Method: Popbo Blocs are soft plastic blocks of different sizes and shapes. All the blocks have different textures on them. Encourage children to touch and feel the bumpy textures on the pieces.
Objective: Grasping fine motor skills training
Method: Encourage children to grasp the plastic pieces with both their right and left hands.
Method: Link any two of the pieces together. Encourage children to twist them in opposite directions. This trains both their gross and fine motor skills.
Objective: Disconnecting Popbo Blocs
Method: Link any two of the pieces together. Encourage children to disconnect them by pulling them sideways in opposite directions. This trains the gross motor skills, fine motor skills and horizontal movement in their hands and arms.
Objective: Rolling Popbo Blocs
Method: Encourage children to roll the green cylinder across the floor. This trains both their gross and fine motor skills. You may also create other pieces to roll by connecting two to three green cylinder pieces, or two purple semi-circles to form a big wheel.
Method: Place all the pieces on the floor and encourage your child to separate them into six groups: five groups based on color and shape, and one group with the two characters.
Objective: Learning 3D shapes
Method: Teach children to identify shapes using the different shaped pieces.
Method: Use Patrick and Bobby as targets. Encourage your child to knock them down by rolling the green cylinder towards them. (You may also roll a wheel formed by two linked semi-circles). This trains children's gross motor skills and aiming skills. (Adjust the distance of the targets for different levels of difficulty.)
Objective: Building with Fun Park (Medium)
Method: Encourage children to recreate the following configurations. This helps develop their three dimensional and spatial concepts.
Method: Fun Park and pieces from Chain-an-inchworm are compatible. Children can combine the pieces from both toy sets to create more configurations. (Note: Chain-an-inchworm sets are sold separately)
Objective: Story building
Method: Let children create their own objects or settings with the Fun Park set, and use Patrick and Bobby as the main characters in the setting. Encourage children to use their imagination to think of dialogue and short stories.
