What is it
Hi-Qube is a set of cubes and prisms that is multi-directional in build rather than just vertical and includes wheels and axles. The shapes with studs on up to three sides can join to Morphun and other brick products. Included with the set are instructions for many different models.
This set is easier for younger ages than Morphun Starter as it leaves out the sliding side joiner.

What our experts think
This set allows children to create their own unique structures, engaging both their creativity and problem-solving skills. Our testers enjoyed making their own different creations, with some using the different shapes and others sticking to the traditional building blocks.
There was a lot of discussion about what the children were building and what the shape could be associated with in real life, which is fantastic for developing vocabulary and shape recognition. While following the instructions, one of our testers did struggle to connect the shapes correctly, but when another child offered to help her, it was lovely to see them work together successfully! This is great for developing their teamwork and communication skills.
