Often referred to as giant TinkertoysÂ®, Toobeez are a portable construction building system comprised of interlocking tubes and spheres. The tubes can be linked together to create anything imaginable, from a simple cube shape to a complex structure like an obstacle course, or even an airplane. The standard Toobeez kit consists of 32 tubes, 20 connector hubs and four slide-on curtains and comes with a portable carrying bag. The name Toobeez describes the product, tubes that are easy to use for work or play.
Toobeez are available with an accompanying interactive multimedia training CD as well as a 177-page Teambuilding Activity Workbook that includes 25 detailed lesson plans (with more than 50 variations) for leading team building activities. Each lesson consists of procedures, helpful hints, debriefing questions, safety reminders and more to build and develop communication and team building skills.
According to Angela Melancon with Strategic Designs for Learning, a leading organizational development firm based in Colorado Springs, ÂWe use Toobeez to teach and reinforce teamwork, business process flow, communication, strategic planning, interdependency, and collaboration. The accompanying CD clearly explains various team building activities and we often take the suggested exercises and tailor them to meet the specific objectives of a particular session. All in all, Toobeez are a great value.Â The company also offers free activities on its project-connect.net website.
Additionally, Toobeez is an easily portable and solidly constructed product that can withstand the vigorous use that comes with holding frequent team building events. According to Peter Grazier, President of Teambuilding, Inc. of Chadds Ford, PA, ÂWhen we saw this engaging new product we were intrigued by its potential as a teambuilding training aid. Toobeez clearly meets the tough guidelines imposed by trainers and facilitators of experiential learning.
