What a delight it was to watch a number of children play with Brick Mates! No screens, no sequins and no television characters. But more importantly, these toys naturally engage a number of cognitive areas at once: visuospatial functioning, executive functioning (planning and organization) as well as higher order categorization and even early language skills. Brick mates, like Legos, move seamlessly from more organized, step-by-step driven tasks to free-form creative play. These are brain-building toys that can be used independently, cooperatively or even therapeutically. I can’t say enough about them, they’re magic.
