Playtime With The Stickle Bricks Fun Tub and More

When we were kids Stickle Bricks were a big thing. We played at home making rockets, planes and houses from the multi coloured bricks. I even have a distant memory of playing with them at primary school. Now they are back bigger than ever for the next generation to play with. Playtime with the Stickle Bricks Fun Tub has been big in our house this past week.

For Little Hands with big imaginations!

My daughter honestly thought it was Christmas when they arrived. I wish I caught her reaction on camera. Opening the Stickle Bricks Fun Tub was very exciting. We also received the Stickle Bricks Fire Engine and the Stickle Bricks Little Builder to have a look over.

What are Stickle Bricks?

Stickle Bricks from Flair first launched in 1969 and have been a toy box favourite for decades. Stickle Bricks remains the perfect first construction toy for toddlers! Providing endless imaginative fun and promoting the best in development of dexterity with their easy to hold bricks that lock together any way they like!

It captures the toddler’s imaginations with its fire fighter and bright red fire engine. Use the easy to assemble bricks and unique Stickle Brick lid to build a fire station.

The fire engine is really easy to put together. My toddler is a huge fan of fire engines and anything to do with firefighters and stations. She was over the moon to test the Stickle Bricks Fire Engine pack out. You can also get Stickle Bricks Farm like this as well.

The Fire Engine is a lot of fun to build. The lid of the box is also used for the base of the Fire Station.

Stickle Bricks Little Builder

It’s the ideal start to a toddler’s collection. Combining a variety of different coloured and shaped bricks, children can stick, stack and construct!

We looked at Stickle Bricks Little Builder next. We adored the 3 smiley face pieces that came with this set. The great thing about Stickle Bricks is that all the different sets contain a few different pieces and they are all interchangeable therefore a great way to build your collection. The Stickle Bricks Fun Tub container has lots of room for all the extra pieces also, so somewhere to keep them all.

What we thought of the Stickle Bricks

My toddler loves the feel of the spiky bricks. The colours are bright and the shapes are brilliant for building with. The pieces are easy to push together and lock into place anyway you like. With there being so many different colours it’s an ideal aid to help with colour leaning as well as shapes. Kids can also learn counting, patterns and sorting and matching.

The abstract shapes are good for the imagination. It’s true that you won’t be able to resist making some kind of object. I rather enjoyed making a pair of glasses much to my daughters delight! Stickle Bricks promote the best in development of dexterity and imagination in children.

They are extremely durable. Built to last. In fact they first arrived back in 1969, and I know my mum remembers me playing with them and now I will remember my little ones playing with the now famous Stickle Bricks.
