One of our favorites!
One of the favorites for building toys this year is Rokenbok. These fantastic building sets really had me impressed. Built to withstand the boys that are playing with them, these sturdy sets provide hours of fun and action. Remote controlled features add to the imaginative play. These are perfect for the holidays, and highly recommended!
We were sent some cool sets to try out and we love them. There are sets for every age and ability, beginning with preschool. Here are some great choices for Christmas.
Our revolutionary blocks let beginning builders make their own ideas come to life. Unlike other preschool blocks, ROK Blocks allow children to build three-dimensional working models – trucks, cars, planes, helicopters, and more. And creations stay together for playtime!A better block. We thought long and hard about how to make a better preschool building block. We concluded that a better block had to be really easy to use, build fun models, and be fun for parents too.
Young children's hands are not very strong or well coordinated, so a really good interlocking block has to be self aligning. Get two ROK Blocks even close together, and their funny shaped cones guide them into alignment. A little squeeze, and the blocks snap together. A stacking block won’t hold a child’s attention for long if they can’t make something fun to play with. ROK Blocks are made in a unique, patent pending way that allows them to stack both up and out in three dimensions. They assemble in thousands more combinations than traditional blocks. This makes it easy to build fun models like trucks, cars, houses, planes and helicopters.
The Power Sweeper is Rokenbok’s most popular vehicle. We added a free ROK Star Controller to make a special Value Pack. . . a great way to start your Rokenbok experience. Whether this is your first Rokenbok purchase, or your adding a vehicle to a growing Rokenbok world, this Value Pack is a great choice and a great deal too!
The Power Sweeper is an interactive play powerhouse thanks to four separate motors and a multitude of functions. Move it left and right, back and forward, even spin it on its own axis. Then, with the powered roller in the nose, suck up ROKs or pump them out with the touch of a button on the included ROK Star Controller. Press another button and the Sweeper tank rises into the air so you can pump balls into another vehicle or a Motorized Conveyor. Or, open the tailgate remotely to dump ROKs from the bed. There’s even an automatic trailer hitch, horn, and back-up warning!
What has two microprocessors, multiple gear trains, four motors, and can hold up to 40 ROKs? The Rokenbok Power Sweeper, of course! Rokenbok remote control machines are tough, real working equipment. They are built for rough play, crashes, and spills. This is not an ordinary toy street sweeper, but a precise and very rugged ROK Star controlled robot. ROK Star machines are smart too. They won’t interfere with each other so that you can add as many ROK Star machines and controllers as you want to your Rokenbok world
Construction and Action Set: It has everything you need to build a vibrant, interactive construction site. Put the remote control Loader to work with the included ROK Star Controller. Steer it left and right. Spin it. Back it up. Scoop, haul, and dump. Then dump a load of ROK balls into the Motorized Conveyor and watch it come to life, automatically. ROKs are lifted into a chute system where they are sorted and stored in spring-loaded dumping bins. All ready for the next pick-up!
Designed to be a home base, this set is the best starting point for anyone looking to create a dynamic, expandable Rokenbok world. ROK Works includes a broad selection of Rokenbok building pieces. The Monorail, Forklift, and ROK Lift are especially easy to add when you’re ready to expand your Rokenbok world.
What has two microprocessors, three motors, working headlights and four-wheel drive? The Rokenbok Loader, of course! Rokenbok remote control machines are tough, real working equipment. They are built for rough play, crashes, and spills. This is is not an ordinary remote control toy, but a precise and very rugged ROK Star controlled robot. ROK Star machines are smart too. They won’t interfere with each other so that you can add as many ROK Star machines and controllers as you want to your Rokenbok world.
