This week’s collections object is a set of Flintstone Interlocking Building Boulders! Produced by Kenner in the early 1960s, these blocks were modeled after those used in the Hanna-Barbera Productions cartoon series, The Flintstones. Unlike the boulders Pebbles played with, these “boulders” are made out of Styrofoam.
Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! And while you are looking high and low, don’t forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and engaging your child in the conversation. For example: How heavy are the boulders? What would you build with them?
