Educational Benefits of Texo for Classroom Centers

Just like Magneatos and PowerClix, Texo also supports the development of S.T.E.M. skills at home or in the classroom. I’ve compiled a list of the educational benefits of Texo for you below:

  • S.T.E.M. Skills {Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math}
  • Construction
  • Creativity
  • Imagination
  • Open-Ended Play
  • Fine Motor Skills/ Hand-Eye Coordination
  • Problem Solving

As they build bridges, houses and more; Texo inspires children in preschool, kindergarten and beyond to explore the principles of math, construction, and engineering while sparking creativity and imaginative play.

Available on Amazon

I received a set of Texo to review; I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are 100% my own.

  1. These look really cool. My class of all boys would love them!

  2. Nina Bergeron says:

    my kids would love the texco 100 piece set. they love making things;

  3. Melinda Stephens says:

    I’d love to have the 210 piece set. That way it isn’t as big a deal when some go missing.

  4. I’d like the Texo 210 pc because, while that means there are more pieces to step on in the middle of the night, it also means that even if my son loses some (he has autism and likes to “hide” stuff sometimes), he’d still have plenty more to play with!

  5. Katy Emanuel says:

    The 100 piece set since it is enough to build some pretty neat structures but also not overwhelming.

  6. I think this is hands on enough to keep both boys and girls,working together,for quite awhile.Great job introducing a wonderful new product!

  7. what a cool toy that is educational,fun, and hands on.

  8. They all look awesome
