Thanks to Zolo for providing me with product, free of charge, in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
In our house, we love to spend time playing and using our imaginations. From dress up games to action figures, anything goes. B also loves to play with toys that he can build with. Sometimes, however, we run out of patience and blocks and bricks become more of a problem than they are fun. So when we were recently introduced to a new way to play and build together, we couldn't wait to check it out!
ZOLO is a fun, colorful way to play! ZoLO® began with a dream to make the most wildly fun toy ever. Something that went back to basics and would inspire creativity in everyone. Armed with felt-tip markers, color pencils, and paper, designers Byron Glaser & Sandra Higashi cooked up the idea for ZoLO around the kitchen table in their small Chelsea design studio in New York City. Today you can enjoy an ever-growing mix of creativity-based ZoLO items for home, work, or afterschool. And with our new mobile apps, you can let your imagination take you wherever it goes! So who knows…it just might be YOUR quirky perspective or far-fetched inkling that begins the next big shift. A flying ham? An uber-avant-garde garden? A lopsided whatchamajiggitchotchke? Where will your creativity take you? That’s what ZoLO is all about.
B was so excited to come home to find a set of ZoLO A-GO-GO!
Our new Zolo play set was packaged in a soft container, with a zip top. All of the contents and pieces fit nicely into this container, for easy clean up and take along, wherever we want our Zolos to go! B loved the colorful pieces peeking through the container, and was eager to dump them out onto the floor to play with them, and see what they were all about.
Look at all of these wacky pieces!
Zolo a-go-go is so much fun! The set comes with several wacky shaped, and colorful pieces to build with. Zolo encourages kids and grown ups to use their imaginations to create some wacky characters to play with, or sit upon a shelf or desk to look at and enjoy. It's the perfect chilly or rainy day toy, or office brainstorming session stress buster!
B couldn't wait to start building!
To build with Zolo, simply connect pieces together- any way you'd like! We love the bright colors, and funky designs. The shapes are so wacky and fun to put together, and they fit together with ease! B and I had a blast playing with our Zolo set for hours the day we received it. We started with a base piece, and then started adding other pieces, silly eyes, arms and legs to make funny looking characters.
The set includes these pieces and many more!

Meet Zorp, B's Zolo creation!
Not all of our Zolo creations were creatures!
We had a blast, just making silly flying ships, crazy shapes, and using our imaginations to see what we could come up with. This is an awesome toy to have at home, and I love that it comes contained in an easy to pack along container. It even has a handle, so we can just grab it and take it along to Grandma's house, or elsewhere. We love sharing our Zolo set with friends and family, and having wacky creature competitions. Everyone is a winner with their funny Zolo creations!
