Publisher Description:

In Architecto -A Smarter Fun® game, players construct 3D models based on illustrations in perspective. From simple shapes to complex structures, players develop stronger notions of geometric concepts and 3D visualisation. While providing solid educational skills, it’s also captivating and exciting! Architecto is part of the Brain Builder series, which consists of 4 exquisite games of spatial visualization. In these games, players progress at their own rhythm, as puzzles gradually become more challenging. All games include the same set of Geoblocks and a spiral book with 6 color-coded levels of difficulty.

  • 50 smart puzzles included.
  • Approved by kids, parents and teachers.
  • Create new structures!

Category Description for Architecto:

Architecto takes the building challenges another step by offering simple 3-D illustrations of structures for players to recreate. In many of these puzzles, the number and shape of blocks used to create different parts of the structure is fairly ambiguous, so building these is a challenge! The book features 50-60+ models to recreate; each challenge includes a simple illustration of the structure to build, a difficulty rating, and a list of blocks the player must use. Because the same set of blocks is used in every set, puzzle books are also available separately.




If you're provided the plans, can you build the structure? Each of these games challenges players to take a structure represented on a page, and recreate it using a certain number of Architect blocks. The games act as a series, increasing in difficulty as each set forces the player to strengthen their visual/spatial skills a bit more. Each game set includes a spiral-bound book of model structures to build and a set of 18 sturdy plastic Architect blocks. The books feature 50-60+ models to recreate; each challenge includes a simple illustration of the structure to build, a difficulty rating, and a list of blocks the player must use. Because the same set of blocks is used in every set, puzzle books are also available separately, so you can easily add on to one complete set.

In Equilibrio, players are challenged to create upright, 3-D structures with the blocks. The book depicts simple two-dimensional illustrations of the structure, and it's up to the player to determine the correct placement of the blocks and ensure that their structure can stand independently. Architecto takes the building challenges another step by offering simple 3-D illustrations of structures for players to recreate. In many of these puzzles, the number and shape of blocks used to create different parts of the structure is fairly ambiguous, so building these is a challenge! The most advanced puzzle set is Cliko. This puzzle book also provides 3-D challenges, but players must use two-dimensional illustrations from a "straight on" perspective to build the 3-D structure. This is a puzzle series that can definitely grow with a child's development - and stretch any adult's spatial skills too!

We've played it before and I think it offers great spatial awareness practice.

I had purchased Equilibrio previously for my nephew and he loved it. I decided to try Architecto for him now. These games are very "smart" games.
