It’s more important now to get kids off of the screens and into things that require hand-eye coordination, manual manipulation, and even team building and this box of 64 beautiful cards will do just that! Build a Skyscraper, created by Paul Farrell for Pavilion Children’s Books, is a set of 64-cards that slot together to allow your child to build a dream building in 3D!
The cards have a green, white, silver, and gold color scheme and plenty of graphic patterns that represent glass, concrete, windows, walls, roofs, and more to complete a fabulous one-of-a-kind building. They’re the perfect size for kids’ hands (4 x 2¾”) and easy to put together and take apart hundreds of times.
The cards come with a fold-out pamphlet for parents that will help encourage your child to learn more about what a skyscraper is, discuss architectural features, share information about iconic skyscrapers, and a bit about their history, including some information about the steel framework that’s common in most of the buildings.
Also included are details on what you’ll find on the rooftops of these buildings, what a curtain wall is and its purpose, history on the elevator and how it was important to being able to create taller buildings, and why exterior decorations can help identify the era a building was built.
There are also facts about Skyscrapers that could be used as a fun Q&A and then a basic building guide and ideas on how to create even more complex buildings. There’s just enough information to get your creative little builder going without overwhelming them with facts.
