With 125 pieces, the Explorer Pack from Wedgits opens up great dimensions in building play. More than simply stacking or snapping pieces together, Wedgits employ unique shapes that brace or “wedge” together in order to form firm structures. The geometric interplay between pieces becomes increasingly complex as children begin experimenting with designs other than stacking and patterning activities also offered by the set. Some of the pieces even glow in the dark. Tips, techniques and designs can be found in the included booklet. ― “We do great with Wedgits. They don't break, or get vacuumed up. They don't get returned,” said Lori Hershman, owner of Evan's Toy Shoppe in Camden, Conn., during an April 2010 survey on best-selling construction toys. ― Three of 43 retailers named Wedgits a top-selling construction toy in spring 2010.
STiX add another dimension to construction designs with Wedgits. Each STiX part follows the geometry of the WEDGiTS small, white octahedron - making it easy to link different WEDGiTS designs, structures or vehicles. Four pieces are included in this pack. Launch date: 2010.
This 15-piece set contains a mixture of favorite Wedgits pieces, as well as new angled and straight Wedgits Building Stix. The distinctive pieces allow for even more building possibilities, and the set integrates fully with other Wedgits sets so children can take the complex geometry, balance and stability of this building system to new heights. — “Wedgits are doing very well. We sell them weekly,” Cathy Albrow, owner of Creative Learning Toys, told TDmonthly in spring 2009 of the construction toy best sellers in her store in Grand Rapids, Mich. — Diana Nelson, owner of Kazoo & Company in Denver, Colo., named Wedgits as a best seller in an April 2009 survey about construction toys, remarking, “We sell a few sets a day.”

With large components, this toddler-safe product offers the same open-ended fun kids find while building with WEDGITS Junior and Deluxe sets. The geometric shapes nest, and each set contains 15 pieces of primary-colored building blocks that can be configured in virtually unlimited configurations. The Starter Set is compatible with all other WEDGITS sets. — “You can start very young with these,” said Patty Tepper-Rasmussen of Learning Tree in Oklahoma City, Okla. She sells approximately 10 to 12 WEDGITS sets each month. Idanna Smith of Juggles in Wakefield, R.I., named WEDGITS as a top seller in her store. — “We came up with the starter set to meet the concerns of parents of toddlers regarding choking hazards. The pieces are big, so that all kids in the family can play with them without worrying about the littlest ones,” Rob McKinley, vice-president of sales and marketing for Imagability, told TDmonthly. — The simple, open-ended play afforded by Wedgits makes it a favorite at toy stores and earned it a TDmonthly Top Seller 2007 award. — Jillie Beans Toys & More in Westminster, Colo., has carried Wedgits, a consistent best seller, since the store’s opening in 2006. “These are an educational toy and parents love that they start at age 1 and you can continue using the early sets even as the child grows older,” reported Storeowner Valerie Elsea in April 2010.
Whether traveling to Grandma's house or spending the night at a friend's place, the 20-count WEDGiTS Junior Tote provides building ideas, word games and letter writing activities in one carry-along bundle. Kids love to show their friends and relatives the marvelous structures they can create, and children can learn to master their first letters and numbers with the dry-erase WEDGiTS Wipeoff Book. This included book and design card deck help kids learn and practice writing words, letters, numbers, mazes and matching activities for hours and hours of "learning-value" fun. Launch date: February 2007. — Boing! JP’s Toy Shop in Jamaica Plain, Mass., has been selling Wedgits for years and keeps a demo set out in the store. “This is a fantastic building game and can be demonstrated so well,” Owner Elaine Hackney told TDmonthly in summer 2007. “Every time I go to a show I have them show me more. It looks so simple, yet the possibilities are fantastic.”
This design toy offers creative construction challenges for today´s kids on the go. Children can stack, nest, link and even lock WEDGiTS together to create creatures, structures, mechanical levers, statues and even galactic spacecraft. Packaged in its own portable, plastic carry-case, this 35-piece educational, manipulative product allows kids to create designs, structures, creatures and art forms.
This 60-piece building kit is designed with vibrant, rhombus-base blocks using high impact, translucent ABS material. Each kit includes four eXpansion framing parts that wedge onto two-part hub assemblies, plus, four sporty 6.5 wheels. With an included set of instructions, kids can assemble a four-wheeled, rolling WEDGiTS vehicle. Hundreds of other mobile designs can be created in two-wheel, three-wheel and other four-wheel layouts.
The shapes fit together differently than standard building sets, helping children think on their own. The 15-piece junior set comes with instructions on how to make the Wedgits support each other and wedge into place, as well as a design book to get kids building creatively. Winner of numerous awards from 1998 through 2004 from Dr. Toy, the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio and Parenting Magazine, the blocks encourage creativity and stimulate spatial thinking and geometric patterning. — “Wedgits, by Imagibility, are very, very good for us,” Brandy Cardenas, manager of Timbuk Toys in Denver, Co., told TDmonthly in April 2008. “Of our starter set with 15 pieces, we sell a good 25 or 30 per month.” — “We always do well with Wedgits,” Leslie Chiaverini, owner of Adventure Toys and Teacher Supplies in Los Altos, Calif., told TDmonthly in April 2008, when asked to name the best-selling construction toy in her store. — Over five percent of retailers, who spoke with TDmonthly about construction toys in April 2008, named Wedgits as their best-seller.
