Monkey Business Sports has come up with another fun toy for children. This time it’s not all about sports, but building and construction. Dick Esterle wanted to create a building toy that was simple and didn’t involve a bunch of parts and connectors. He wanted each piece to be able to connect to another. He also wanted to make them thin and light like potato chips — and so Space Chips was born.
There’s a lot of math and Greek words that can be used to describe and explain Space Chips but what it boils down to that Space Chips are a simple toy that can be used to create three dimensional shapes by snapping together interlocking “chips”. As you can see from the pictures, these brightly colored chips can form a variety of balls but the 50 piece Space Chips set can also be used to build more complex structures like “Waddles the Penguin”. The set retails for $15 and is recommended for ages 6 and up.
