ZOOB 500 Piece Building Set

This tub of 500 brightly-colored pieces comes with 6 instruction guides to make over 40 creations including a Megabite, the shark or a ZOOB purse (or create your own). ZOOB is not like any other building set - the pieces include gears, axels and joints that snap, click, and pop together. With rotating, spinning and extendable parts you can actually design a toy to play with, instead of just building something to look at.

  • Includes a durable plastic storage tub, 4 foam building pads and 6 instruction guides

Unique connections make a unique building experience

ZOOB Pieces

ZOOB sets have 5 different styles of pieces that snap together in 20 ways to make connections that rotate, limbs that extend, axels that spin and much more. The pieces move after they're built together, so your child can create toys to play with instead of just looking at them. ZOOB's shape is inspired by nucleotides, the basic structure that makes up DNA. ZOOB captures the dynamic movement based on the way things move in nature instead of using traditional stacking connections.

Encourages Kids to Use Their Imagination

The best part about playing with ZOOB is exploring, discovering and using imagination to create any design that comes to mind. This gives ZOOB built-in educational value because children must use the most important tool of all for creation: their imaginations. The included instruction guides also teach children how to build different creations for those who prefer to go by the book.

More Pieces make bigger projects

All ZOOB kits are compatible with each other, so with each new set your overall collection grows. With enough pieces, you can create anything.

We purchased this for our boys - ages 5 & 7 for Christmas because they really love the lego products and we got the 500 piece set so that our four children, ages 5,7,9 & 11 could enjoy it together...once they got started - they have done something with it everyday! The instruction books are a great visual tool but the kids have tried lots of things on their own as well. The only item I wish was different was the case - it broke on the first day so we had to put everything in a heavy duty plastic bin so it could handle traveling from one room to another.

My son Dan sustained a head injury 14 years ago. Following 2 years of therapy, his Dad and I spent hundreds of dollars trying to find something that would keep his now limited attention span and yet be somewhat creative. One Christmas several years ago. I happened upon Zoobs and purchased these for him. What a great item!! He puts them together however he wants to and then shows off his finished product..we are so proud of everything he does. I can now only find Zoobs' with Amazon and we are so thankful. Beth Toenes

This item kept going in and out of my cart for about six months, because I was happy to read the stellar reviews, but I kept doubting if this would really hold my kids attention or not. We have Lego's, but they only play with them once in awhile. How would this Zoob set be any different?

I finally gave in and decided to give it a try. If my kids didn't like it, surely another family would enjoy them, so I'd give them away. I'm happy to say it has been a huge hit! They have played with them every day since they got them. I have a wide range of ages in my home and even the older ones have enjoyed building some contraptions with their younger siblings. They have made all kinds of things. Boys have made the usual boy things, such as swords, shields, tightrope, steering wheels with gas pedals, and so on. Girls have made crowns, necklaces, various pies/cakes, American Girl doll accessories, and so forth. Of course, they have made most of the ideas that come with the package, but their imagination has taken off to create things I would have never guessed would be possible with this little set. All kinds of imagination goes on with the Zoob set! Unlike Lego's, these pieces are movable and I believe that has been the main reason these are a hit with the kids.

One thing I especially appreciate about this set over something like K'Nex would be the size. They are the perfect size for little and big hands, while also not being a choke hazard for small babies and toddlers. I think this is important to note, because although it warns it is a choke hazard for children under three years old, I believe these pieces would be difficult for a baby/toddler to choke on. My kids have swallowed things they weren't suppose to, but never anything the size of these pieces.

We purchased these as a birthday present for my 8-year-old son. He loves them. You can make simple or complex creations with them. He comes back to building toys like these and Legos again and again while electronic toys fall by the wayside.

I received this gift for Christmas and have had loads of fun builing the different items listed in the instructions. I've had these in the past and a few have broken so store them away so no one can step on them and be careful when snapping or unsnapping them. Now that I'm older (I'm 11) I care for them and play with them more carefully. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes to build things!

We bought the 500 zoob for Christmas this year. My boys were introduced to this at my brother's house. What I find really great about it is if your kids love legos but you still have small children around and don't want the chocking hazard zoob is perfect for you. We have ALL played with it, my husband and myself included. Great toy...seriously great.

One and only setback that we have had is we bought the 500 zoob and the case connector broke. I am now going to try and see what we can do about it. This is a non-issue with the smaller amounts since the boxes that hold them are different. This is the only reason I put 4 stars for the durability. It is not a reflection on the actual toy.

The possibilities are endless! This is a wonderful toy. My little boy already had the 125-piece set but that wasn't enough. This set has provided hours of fun so far.
