Strictly Briks Classic Creative Building Creatorz and The CUBE Set

This colourful set is 100% compatible with all major brick brands. The first thing I noticed was the appealing colour range of the bricks which include pink, brown, purple, grey and orange amongst others (12 altogether - a really good range). The pack comprises 60 Multicoloured Creatorz with a 6" x 6" CUBE Set in blue, grey (not the orange shown in the images) and green, plus an ideas leaflet. By starting off with the base plates/cube, children can get creating really quickly, with satisfying results from the infinitely creative 3D building possibilities. The blocks come in two sizes - a cube and a rectangle which is three times the size. They can build in any direction or even upside down to create futuristic space ships, mind-bending castles, and much more, extending their imaginations and giving endless play opportunities. The bricks are well made and fit together easily without falling apart when being played with, and yet can be easily taken apart for the next creation; Strictly Briks products are built to premium standards and that really shows. They will not easily break or bend, and will give many years of enjoyment. This set comes just packaged in plastic bag, but once you have made up the cube it can be used for storage (a very neat idea and one that encourages children to keep the set tidy), or otherwise you will need to find an appropriate storage box or keep it with other sets. Strictly Briks are one of those toys that keep on growing and growing - every time you add a new set to your child's collection, it refreshes the whole thing, giving a new lease of life.
