Light Stax is a set of extraordinary building blocks – or Stax – that light up when connected to a power base or other lit Stax, through a patented LED technology. It aids in cognitive development and boosts one’s creativity and imagination.
The price of the Light Stax depends on what set you’re buying, but expect it to be from $15.00 – $80.00.
Who Would Buy This?
Building blocks are a classic toy which is enjoyed not only by kids but also by adults. Parents looking for a toy that will aid in the cognitive and creative development of their child would definitely like to get a set of these light-up building blocks. These are also good for bonding activities with the family or even a group of friends.
Things We Like
- The concept of making what would otherwise be normal or regular building blocks light up is quite something. It’s actually a very simple idea, which makes us wonder why no one’s thought of it before. The three different settings that we see in the Starter Set, for instance, make these building blocks multi-functional. The settings, by the way, include Solid Light, Flashing, and Fading. Using these settings, these blocks can also act as a night light. The different colors of the Stax also make the overall effect more attractive.
- But what if you already have traditional building blocks? Will they become useless when you have Light Stax? Of course not. The Light Stax, although they are more modern, are still compatible with older building blocks. Of course, the traditional blocks are not going to light up, but they can still be used to create or build, when combined with the Light Stax.
- Whenever light or power is involved, many parents worry that it could lead to accidents such as electrocution. That is not going to be a problem with the Light Stax, since there are no special wires or connectors needed. The power base is battery-operated, and you don’t have to wire the other Stax in order to make the light up. Through power transference, Stax will light up as they stack them on top of each other.
Things We Don’t Like
At the moment, only the Starter Kit is introduced, with the promise that more add-ons and accessories, as well as product variations of the Light Stax will be released in the latter part of the year. We still do not know whether it has features that are not up to par with our expectations or not.
No information regarding product guarantee and warranty has been released yet.
Is It Worth The Money?
The Starter Kit is selling for around $16. This is slightly more expensive than the ordinary building block sets. However, the lighting-up functionality definitely sets it apart from the usual models, which justifies the higher price.
Where Can I Buy?
The Light Stax will be available in Light Stax’s retail partners, as well as merchant sites such as Amazon.
Stack ‘em and watch them light up! Light Stax will forever change the way you see and enjoy building blocks!
