Many construction toys for kids are like building blocks—inflexible and rigid—but Hix sets itself apart as a set of cones that emphasize transformation.
There are four base cones in the toy set, each of which can be transformed into a different basic shape. These singular shapes made of elastic silicone rubber can then be stacked and nested with other shapes to form playful geometric formations that can easily be taken apart and rebuilt.
Beyond simply offering the potential for hours of entertainment, Hix is a toy set that teaches kids to refine their hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and more. Best of all, Hix notes that "Finally you have smart building blocks that don’t hurt when you accidentally step on them nor make any noise when tumbling down,"—which parents will surely appreciate.
