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.

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.
I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. Sure the cost seems high compared to some toys but when you think about how many years this will get used and the different things you can build, the cost isn’t much compared to all the flimsy toys one buys every year. I also won their drawing they have so that’s another perk! Will probably buy another set in the future if I have room!
My 5 year old grandson is overwhelmed he loves Constructing Different designs. This is the best gift he ever got he said. I definitely recommend to anyone Even us adults are having a great time building. It is so well made.
I first saw TubeLox when I was mindlessly scrolling on social media, and I'll admit it was a bit of an impulse purchase. But my four-year-old loves them! She's still a little young to put them together herself, but she can put the clamps on and she's starting to work on spacial reasoning to see how the pieces fit together.
The instruction booklet is a great start, but there are many more ways to combine the pieces. Currently there is a "vanity" and chair combo taking up our living room, the steerable trike in our kitchen, and her "bow and arrow" that she refuses to put down, even when she sleeps.
To me, the best part is that they will grow with her. Right now, we (parents) make the things for her, but as she grows, she'll be able to make her own designs either by herself or with friends.
The weight limit says it supports up to 80 pounds. I looked it up, and that's the weight of an average 11- or 12-year-old. They have a LONG life ahead of them!
One add-on I would highly recommend is the carry case. Otherwise, you get the tubes and pieces in a cardboard box, which is a bit heavy and clunky to move around. The carry case is well made and has plenty of space inside - and two mesh pouches on the outside!
Thanks, TubeLox, for such an amazing and long-lasting product! It's worth every penny.
Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! This is exactly what TubeLox is all about!
