About UncommonGoods

UncommonGoods is looking for uncommon people: one of their missions is to support and provide a platform for artists and designers. They’re so invested in promoting uncommon artists, that half of the products they sell are handmade, and almost everything is created in the United States (including the president building blocks set, one of the cool things you can find in their gifts under $100 section.

To find new artists, UncommonGoods hosts design challenges, where anyone can enter and submit their designs for fun graphics, original jewelry, creative upcycled products, and more. Check out UncommonGoods’ UncommonGoods, where you may find some of their past winners (I love the You Are Here maps!).

Be sure to read more about UncommonGoods and their mission of sustainability in my review of the Totter Tower, published earlier this week.

Our Experience with the OgoBild Hub

Do you have a budding inventor? The OgoBild Hub, only $20 from UncommonGoods.com, will spark your child’s imagination for hours on end. Manipulate the flexible and interchangeable pieces to create creatures, robots, vehicles, and other crazy contraptions.

I have to admit, when I saw this toy, I scrolled past it. But Kieran’s first response was “whoa! What is that?!” We scrolled through all of the other options on UncommonGoods’ section for kids, and Kieran kept coming back to the OgoBild Hub. “I want to make that!” And make it he did.

Giveaway: Ogobild Hub

With 2 flexible OGOBILD balls, 4 wheels, 16 connectors, 11 joints, 5 wings, 25 imagination pieces, the creation possibilities are endless. Kids can design inventions that roll, scoot, fly, tower, tip, and most of all, entertain. The pieces force kids to be creative – it is the perfect open-ended toy. Kieran experimented – sometimes with Tom’s assistance – and found out how different pieces worked together to accomplish different structures and designs.

He loved coming up with crazy interpretations of real-life things. “Check out my helicopter bike!” he would run in and say. Or “it’s a car that transforms into a boat!” “It’s a double car with a super spine!”

Ailia, on the other hand, was completely unable to do more than just play around with Kieran’s creations. The fit of the pieces is a little too tight for her toddler hands to manage. But she did like the colorful pieces!

Giveaway: Ogobild Hub

I can easily see getting some of the expansion packs that are sold separately to extend the creation possibilities (check the OgoStore).

Kieran has thoroughly enjoyed his OgoBild Hub, and I’ve loved watching him stretch his imagination!

Buy it!

You can purchase your own OgoBild Hub at UncommonGoods for $20.
