As you have probably gathered we are bricks and Lego mad in this house and not just the little ones. Its was fab to be asked to review the range from Strictly Briks. Strictly Briks items are compatible with all major brands, including LEGO, Mega Bloks, & K’NEX. They have a fun range including the original Brik buster game , Brik tower and trap and gap sets. We were sent the Brik tower and trap and gap set.
The Brik tower
This set comes with baseplates and bonus Briks , the popular Brik Tower is a great well to enhance a child’s STEM skills, by building as high as the can they can master the tower. Each baseplate can be stacked vertically by using the bonus Briks as spacers.
Archie and Frankie absolutely loved creating things with these , including towers , sky scrapers and car garages. They also made an apartment block with furniture and their mini figures. Archie is now using it as a shelf on his shelf to store all of his creations and of course his mini figures.
I love that you can get the set in many different colours. This set includes 6 stackable plates that measure 10″ x 10″, along with 50 new and improved stackers. They come in so many different colours which is great and you can keep adding to it. The set is available from Amazon and priced at £29.99.
The trap and gap
This set was also a huge hit with the little ones and is fab for imaginative play. This baseplate set takes the classic Strictly Briks stackable baseplate design with the addition of trap doors and ramps that open so much imaginative play ideas. We had castle towers , garage car parks and houses.
They loved using their cars and mini figures to go from level to level. This set includes 10″ x 10″ baseplate set includes 1 10″ x 10″ stackable baseplates in blue, 1 10″ x 10″ baseplate with traps and gaps in blue and gray, as well as 5 Stackers. This set is available from Amazon and priced at £12.99.
I think these are such a great alternative to Lego and the more expensive brands , they offer so many different possibilities and imaginative play opportunities. I also love that they are compatible as we have so many different brands to team with these sets. Overall we are so impressed by them and will be buying these in the future.
*We were sent both sets free of charge for the purpose of this review , all thoughts and opinions are my own.
