CitiBlocs Neon

This 100-piece wooden building set will have kids building towers, parking lots, boats and more in neon colors that will delight the imagination. The rectangular blocks, made of New Zealand pine, are easy to put together and offer a ton of practice with fine-motor skills, spatial reasoning and, of course, creativity. Parents may want to invest in an additional container to help store the blocks. Warning: CitiBlocs may result in a lack of television. (CitiBlocs, $26.24)
