Editor’s Pick

We’ve found Zome to be one of the best building and construction toys for bright kids.  Zome is precise enough in it’s measurements that it is used by scientists, mathematicians, engineers and architects.  Like K’nex or tinker toys you can create all kinds of structures, shapes, and buildings. Unlike K’nex or tinker toys you can create more complex shapes like DNA helixes, Buckyballs, Geodesic Domes and molecular models.  Zometool.com also has free lesson plans and activities you can download from their website.  Children of all ages will find this toy exciting and provide endless hours of fun!

Zome is not easy to find in toy stores.  You can buy Zome at their online shop, if you click here
