As a mom to a child with what seems to be 100,000 useless annoying noise making toys, I always swoon over interactive STEM toys that not only challenge small minds alike, but they don’t require batteries or electronics. I love activity type toys that keep C intrigued and interested.
The Maze-O starter set was a toy fitting that bill. It is suitable for ages starting around 2 and when asked the best age, the CEO stated “young children, starting around age 2 can begin to put pieces together. By 3-4 years old they can be deliberate about forming passageways and branches that lead to dead-ends or exits. By age 5-6 children can follow the included instruction cards to form complex mazes and creat their own complex mazes with tricky passageways”…and she’s right! While Cayden is (barely) 5, he was able to look at the card and follow the colored instructions on how to build the maze on it. He then thoroughly enjoyed driving his hot wheels cars through said maze and then promptly destroying it and finding another card to follow.
Included in the starter set is a deck of cards with instructions for 30+ mazes, plus 5 different types of tiles. The tiles are brightly colored and fit together without much effort.
The Maze-O set was a huge hit here. Cayden loves to build, loves mazes and this product is truthfully the best of both worlds. Price wise, you’re looking at just under $30 which is reasonable for such a high quality toy. You can find Maze-O on Amazon or in Barnes and Noble book stores.
Overall, 5 out of 5.

This sounds like a no-brainer to give my daughter who has seven children, the youngest 6 months. I also have two other grandchildren who visit their cousins frequently.
As grandmother to 5 I am always looking for interesting toys for birthdays, Christmas, etc. I really like the non- electronic “old-fashioned” items that encourage creative play. It looks like Maze-O fits the bill!
My Granddaughter is 6, and loves building toys like Erector Carnival sets, legos, etc I really think this product is right up her alley. I would love to get her this.
