Best Christmas Reaction of All Time

Jeff Boden and his wife have three budding engineers ages 3, 5, and 7 who love to build. Their oldest has been asking for Rokenbok and watching our videos for 3 years. Well, this Christmas his wish came true.

Jeff said, “My wife and I had no idea there would be such an extreme reaction. But, I suppose that is the reaction you get when a kid has been asking for Rokenbok for Christmas for 3 years. That's 3 years of fulfilled hopes and dreams exploding out of a 7 year old boy!”

Rokenbok Family Builds A Bobsled Track!

We always love to see family's do exceptionally creative things with Rokenbok building sets and this bobsled and track is no exception. They started by creating the track out of a Rokenbok building set and then packing it with snow and letting it freeze overnight. They utilized most of the pieces out of the Inventor's Tool Box, which is the largest Rokenbok building set and has a lot of 30 and 60 degree angle snaps.

Say Cheese!

Rokenbok And Autism

Justin Padilla has been a Rokenbok champion builder for several years now creating unbelievably complex working roller coasters, Ferris wheels, and tramway systems. We're always impressed that he somehow seems to upstage one spectacular build with a new one. See his YouTube channel of Rokenbok builds here. One day Justin walked into his room to find something he had never seen before. To his excitement he found his younger autistic sister immersed in his Rokenbok collection.
