With the new technologies and gadgets for kids that seem to appear more and more every day, blocks may seem like too traditional a toy for today’s digital natives. But, did you know that there a quite a few cognitive benefits for children that play with blocks? With this in mind, the VELCRO® Brand created VELCRO® Blocks™ construction sets – a truly timeless toy for children that helps them to develop critical skills for school and for life.
Kids seem to have endless imaginations. They can turn a box into a spaceship, build skyscrapers from simple blocks and conjure up the wildest stories. And in today’s world of online games and mobile devices, watching a child use their imagination is often a welcome sight for parents.
There are many myths and legends out there when it comes to the VELCRO® Brand— including being invented by aliens (false!) or devised by our friends at NASA (also false!). While we do have a rich legacy in the world of our space exploration, our actual backstory is much more interesting.
Here at Velcro Companies, we strive to make Amazing Connections everyday through not only our various products and technology—but most importantly, our direct dialogue with partners, customers and the communities we serve.
