Don’t you just love seeing your children enjoying the things that you once loved as a child?
Little Fox recently received the Original Stickle Bricks Big Red Bucket to test. Having played with variations of blocks and magnetic building toys I wasn’t sure if he’d show much interest in them. How wrong was I?
Upon opening the box he spent an entire evening forcing his granddad to build cars. Shouting “play that” at anyone who dared walk past the bucket.
The bricks are smooth in texture and safe for play, whilst also being spiky ti enable children to intertwine them and build new shapes.
From towers, trains, houses and horses he’s built them all. It’s amazing what the imagination of a 2 year old can muster up from a selection of basic shapes. Promoting the development of dexterity and imagination through play.
Stickle bricks bring back fond memories for me of “wet break time” at school. When board games and toys would make an appearance and you rejoiced at avoiding the cold concrete playground.
I recall building houses and towers from Stickle Bricks and now I’m seeing my son do the same. It’s nice to know that things haven’t changed that much since I was a child. Technology hasn’t taken over completely and we can still find joy in the little things.
Overall Little Fox has loved playing with Stickle Bricks, they’ve become a part of our daily play regime where he usually combines then with the people from his play house and various other toys. He’s thinking up with new ways to build with the bricks each time we play and showing me just how vast his imagination is.
