The Stickle Bricks Big Red Bucket Review

I got a huge blast from the past when Lily and I was sent the Big Red Bucket of Stickle Bricks from flair. I used to love Stickle Bricks when I was a child so when I got offered to review them I could not pass up the opportunity. 

I was really excited to be introducing Stickle Bricks to Lily. I knew she would love them because she is really creative and loves to build. 

I just love that they come in a big red bucket. It makes them so easy to store and also so handy for Lily to be able to carry around with her. (Its not heavy at all!) The bucket is also so colourful that as soon as I got it out Lily was really eager to see what was inside. As I opened the lid she was so excited and wanted to grab them out of the box before I could even get a chance to take a photograph. She loved that they were all different colours and started to tell me what colours they were. The bricks also come in a variety of shapes so the list of things you can make from them are endless. 




Lily didn't quite know what to do with them at first and so I had to show her that they stuck toggether and she could then build with them. I asked her "What shall we build" and she straight away said Robot. She has been really interested in building them lately since daddy has been building them with her. Talking of Daddy, he was just as excited to see Stickle Bricks and started to help her build the robot straight away, then he got carried away and started making all sorts. For a second I think he forgot that he is an adult now and totally went back to his childhood. 

Lily soon got the hang of making things with the Stickle Bricks and started to push them toggether quite easily. The things she made didn't really have much design to them but in her mind I'm sure she knew what she was making. In this picture I'm pretty sure she has made a person. 



One thing I have to say about stickle bricks is that they are hard wearing. In other words they last a long time and don't break. I think they are one toy your child can really hold on to and play with for years. 

The Stickle Bricks are aimed at children aged 18months plus and are great first building toy. They are great for encouraging children to use their hands more which in turn helps develop hand and eye co-ordination and fine motor skills and dexterity. It also really helps build a child's imagination which you will see grow as they start to create more and more things out of the bricks. 

You can buy a tub of Stickle Bricks for just £19.99, take a look at Flairplc.co.uk to see more. 

Keep an eye on our Twitter Page on the 16th of March to see what creations we have been making. 

What would you build out of Stickle Bricks?

  4. I think I would build a Mansion. I could dream of it having a utility room, cinema etc. My Great Nephew is of an age to enjoy Stickle Bricks , and would probably build a train. He does love trains.
