We recently had the chance to review a rather unique building set as part of a review program that we participate in. I saw the theme of animals and thought it would be great for Big Red to build something that Lil’ Red could play with.
I have to admit I was a little disappointed in the fact that the bricks are quite difficult to put together and take apart even for myself and hubby! We did our best to follow the directions which at first seemed really good but then we realized were almost too detailed.
The amount of detail in the pictures then became a little bit confusing and very frustrating for Princess to build. She tried a few different animals and with some help from mom and dad we finally had success!
We had a few neighbor girls over and they were able to build a creation all of their own with ease. They both agreed that it was hard to follow the instructions to make one of the safari animals. Lil’ Red loved the “monster” that the girls created for him.
What We Like About Click-A-Brick:
-easy to wash pieces
-great for taking along to the beach or backyard or on vacation
-can create your own characters and animals in many ways
What We Don’t Like About Click-A-Brick:
-the pieces are very hard to put together and take apart even for adults
-the instructions aren’t as easy to follow as they could be
The is an educational building block set for children aged 4 and up. What makes this product unique is the way the blocks connect to each other. Rather than connecting in just one way, Click-A-Brick’s can be connected from all sides and corners; even forming diagonal lines.
This way of building helps children improve motor and dexterity skills as well as their spatial reasoning. The Animal Kingdom Safari set comes with instructions on how to build a lion. The other animals – wolf, monkey, camel, and giraffe – are pictured on the instruction sheet. There are no directions on how to build these because they are supposed to challenge the child to create them on their own after they learn how to make the lion.
Click-A-Brick also helps nurture a child’s imagination and creativity by allowing them to build anything they can think of – in 3D. Many different shapes and creations can be made, spurring the child’s imagination further with each one. The product is very durable as well; where the child can actually play with the creation they made – or quickly disassemble it to make another.
I think over time the Click-A-Brick set may become less tight and easier to use. We forgot to take them with us on vacation. I think that this building set would be great for a day at the beach, a week camping, or in the car for vacation. They are sturdy plastic so they can be washed with no worries. If you child likes to build unique structures or animals then I would recommend the Click-A-Brick Animal Kingdom Safari set.
