When we were offered a chance to review Sticklebricks recently I jumped at the chance. Both myself and Gav had played with these as children and we couldn’t wait to see what had changed and if the kids loved them too!
We were set a few products from the range including the farm set and the little builder set. With three different sets and multiple ways of playing all 3 children (2,4 and 8 years old) jumped straight in for a big build!
I was surprised at how little had changed with the toy. You find with reboots of my childhood favourites are often a bit flimsier or smaller but these look, feel and work just the same as when I played with them years ago.
The kids have loved playing with these and they have built the farm, cars and very tall towers mixing up the selection of kits we were set. I personally love the robust storage they are sent in as well – who doesn’t love an easy way to tidy up after play has finished!
Overall we have loved having this imaginative play addition to our toy box. They really are a great way of improving motor skills when building and also we have counted, talked about colours and sang Old McDonald as we built.
The prices are pretty reasonable for a child’s toy and I love how the starter box is under £10, perfect for a birthday gift!
