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 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.
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.
