Overview

As a parent of young children, we know you're used to questions... (A never-ending stream of questions ;))

Sooooo... instead of a boring app description we thought, hey! let's give these parents a break... why not let YOU ask the questions, and WE can do the answering (for once).

So here goes...

Q: What is Blöki?

A: Blöki is a block-building application for children. We've done our best to bring the world of wooden block building to your nook. There is no time limit, no points, and no leader-board. This application has been designed to provide a canvas for your child to express their creativity and provide a purely tactile experience in the digital realm.

Q: When is a good time for Blöki?

A: Obviously almost any time is a great time to play with Blöki! We encourage allowing your children to play and experiment with "real" building blocks as much as possible, however there are many times when this is simply not possible. Our children tend to play with Blöki when we are out and about... waiting in lines, waiting for appointments, traveling, etc...

Q: Where in the world can your kids play with Blöki?

A: Ah, this is simple... anyplace where losing "real" blocks may be an issue.

Oh and of course, the ever-present...

Q: Why Blöki?

A: In the physical world there are many wonderful creative toys for kids, however we've noticed that digitally there are very few for young children. It is our goal to bring some of these simple building tools to the digital realm. This is essentially how Blöki was born :)

Blöki Features:

- Beautiful realistic wooden textured blocks simulate the real block building experience.
- Stack blocks in ways that your children never could in the "real" world.

Coming soon to Blöki:

- More blocks! (both styles and textures)
- Ability to post your children's creations to Facebook!
- Alternate backgrounds, add to the realism of the block building experience by placing your blocks in many different environments!

Please purchase Blöki today and assist our team in creating a whole host of additional creative and educational tools for young children. Also let us know what you think of Blöki. And please send all requests and support questions to:

    I think it's funny that...

    People hate it because it's boring, but it was made for little kids, who like building stuff with blocks.

    Ok

    My daughters like this okay... it is designed to be a creative expression tool for building similar to a set of wooden blocks. The blocks rotate and conceptually it is pretty good. Unfortunately, the program is a bit buggy in that everytime we play, a block will get stuck and will refuse to clear.

    Simply Beautiful.

    Fun for all ages, this game is as simple (or challenging) as you make it. Build a tower without toppling or just build...anything! Gorgeous textures and colors. A classic in the making.

    A Lilac Wolf and Stuff Review

    Too buggy. Everytime we play a block gets stuck, the only way to fix it is to close the app and restart it. Not as much fun when that happens.

    not sure...

    if it is frustrating me to get to the blocks after each one, not sure my kids will be able to put up with it...they love to build so i thought this would be perfect for times when they can't play w/real blocks but why cant the screen just stay open?

    Toddlers will love it!

    Blocks on the nook. What could be more covenient? No mess either! I especially love the locking and unlocking feature that lets the blocks either stay as you stack them, or fall naturally as they would in real life. Good job.

    Very fun and realistic

    A little hard to get the hang of manuvering the pieces, but so much fun. I love the background and how realistically the pieces fall. Can't wait for the improvements they say are coming. Well worth the dollar : )

    Creative

    No goal, not for those who want a puzzle game. Great for creative types, including little kids.
