It is always fun to get a sneak peek of one of the hot items for the fall. In the past it was fashion that I was getting excited about, now it is kids products:) It is also really fun when some of your closest friends created the hot item, and gave you a set before any one else could buy them:)
The item that I am hinting at is called Soft Blocks, and they are the hot toy item for Fall 2012!! They were created by close friends of ours named Damian and Kristen Monteleone. They are the parents of three adorable boys, and they decided they wanted something new for their playroom. A different type of block for them to build with, one that you could use in any environment...playroom, outside, pool, bath....
And with that the Soft Block was created!! A block that you can bend and squish...and even step on!!
Not only are they fun to build with (our entire family sat on the floor with them for a few hours the other night), but they are great for child development. Soft Blocks are unique interlocking blocks that foster problem solving skills and constructive building techniques.
They are easy enough for little ones to stack, but exciting enough for older kids and adults to play with. They also come in a great carry along bag, so you can take them everywhere with you (every parent loves an item that is easy to put away and comes with their own storage). My son likes to walk around the house with his set!!

These have definitely become a new family favorite in the Orso home, but we are not the only ones that love them!! They were only released to the market recently, yet they are already selling out. They are going to be the hot holiday item, so if you want a set I would recommend getting them soon!! You can find Soft Blocks at many top retailers including Amazon and Think Geek.
...or you can be friends with the right person (or adorable kids website) and win a set.
