TubeLox® is a STEM toy (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) perfect for educational application while enhancing creativity with active and imaginative play.
TubeLox® is a life-sized construction toy that allows kids to use their creativity while designing and building their own play. With this toy, fabricate anything from sizeable sturdy structures, to usable cars, homes and rocket ships. Who doesn’t want their kids to play with toys that will awaken the brilliance in them? With TubeLox, kids can apply practical skills and real life application while learning and having a blast. TubeLox is an educationally awakening toy that is fun!

Children love building cars and testing their work with a zip around the house or the neighborhood. TubeLox is a social toy joining friends and families together while building, learning and playing. It’s not just for kids!
The Power of Play
Active Play: Some benefits of active play include; communication and social skills and rules, patience and perseverance, teamwork and sense of belonging with a sense of ‘give and take.’ TubeLox brings kids together to work as a whole. This toy is meant to be actively played with. Forming tunnels, structures with levels to climb on, cars, forts and more. Into sports? Build a soccer or hockey goal, row boat or a track hurdle. TubeLox is active play at it’s best with the benefits of constructing in the process.
Imaginative Play: Nurturing the imagination is paramount for developing minds. The process of pretending builds skills in many influential ways. TubeLox allows the imagination to be set free. The sky is the limit with invention, discovery and imagination. Build an airplane and be a pilot, a house to play with dolls, a ship to be the captain, a rocket ship to be an astronaut, a princess tower to be Rapunzel, or a fire truck and ladder to be a firefighter.

Ages 3+ years
You might be wondering, “is my 12 year old really going to find this interesting?” From our experience and feedback, it’s a resounding “YES!” Kids are waiting for opportunities to open their minds, creativity and discovery with active play. Technology is usually a big part of a child's life from a young age and it's difficult to find "toys" to spark an interest in pre-teen developing minds. TubeLox is invigorating for these young minds. At a very young age, children can play with TubeLox and start forming desired pieces and shapes while discovering how to put them together easily. This toy is easy to put together for all ages, unlike very small connector type toys such as LEGOS. Another benefit includes lack of small pieces that are an easy chocking hazard. TubeLox pieces are all large enough to be safe for children of all ages.
This toy fills that void for both girls and boys. The older the child is, the more real and applicable their structures become. To be a critical thinker, inventor, designer, engineer, or architect, these skills are honed in at an early age. Regardless of lifelong career dreams, the skills enhanced with TubeLox have lifelong value.
* Never allow any child over 75 lbs to climb on or ride in a structure.
* Does not include plastic storage bin.
We built a playground in the play area of the house and turned the ground into a ball pit, which makes it a lot safer for kids to climb up on it given if they fall they land in two feet of ball pit plastic balls. To keep the balls in place we build a perimeter of jumbo blocks around the tubelox structure. It requires a lot of tubelox to build it. The deluxe sets are the best for gearing your parts except for the 4 way cross and 5 way connecters which I bought extra of each on the side.
My 5 year old got Tubelox for her birthday a couple weeks ago, and she has played with them every day since she received them. She LOVES these blocks, and I love how they provide endless possibilities for her to use her imagination. She is little, so the adults have helped her build a jungle gym, car, table, and chairs. Some of the things she has built independently include a telescope and magnify glass, canes for her grandmas, and a stage for her figurines. I am SO happy with this purchase.
We have 4 children; 3 year old triplets and a 5 year old. They've been having nonstop fun with the Deluxe set. As of the moment, they worked with me to build a jungle gym with two of the three sets which I believe will stay as is for many weeks or months, while the third set is more for experimentation. At any rate, the kids absolutely love this toy and three boxes has proven to be the right amount for the group. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is due to the cost, and that I think the color choices in the design are poor. Because this toy has the potential of taking up a lot of space, I think the designers should consider the adults in the house a little more. I think more adult colors like black, grey, off-white, camel brown, and other neutrals should be a color option so that the toy disappears when around more considered home decor.
I had a set like this as a kid and I knew how fantastic they are. My kids are enjoying them so much since Christmas and I know that this creative, open-ended play is good for all of us. No batteries, no screen, I love it!
To be completely perfect, I would love it if TubeLox would
1. Change the colors. Wow, these are bright and look horrible. Not a big deal but can you imagine these in a soft, modern color palette? They would be amazing AND I would mind having something like that set up in my living room for an extended period of time.
2. We need more of the largest connectors. The green ones with 5 holes are really crucial and even with a triple set we need more.
3. Give us more in the idea book. Maybe we’re better off figuring it out for ourselves, but we built a staircase, loft with a slide attached that was definitely not up to code. I’d love to see that design and lots more.
The Best Play/Learning equipment we have ever owned. The Best. We have used our Tubelox (originally called Omagles) with great pleasure for almost 40 years. The original set was plenty of good fun, but adding on opened even more horizons.
