Kids love nothing more than being destructive, or is that just mine?! The girls love nothing more than building things up and then smashing it back down to start again. We have had so many games where they have to take out blocks or build and destroy the creation so when we were asked to review The Original Brik Buster from Strictly Briks I knew the girls would love it.
You need two or more players and first of all you get to create a tower with the platforms and bricks supplied. With lots of fab bright colours you can either make a pattern or simply go for a mix in your columns. Two platforms are set as the base to keep it stable. The columns of four stackers tall on each corner of the platforms and two columns between the two corners. Alternating directions of the platform on each level.
Next come the fun bit. Each player takes it in turn to try and hit the supporting columns out with the hammer provided. Don’t knock the tower over though! The one who topples the tower loses!
Create different variations of the columns for other games or do as my girls did and build a little toilet roll dispenser for when you are sick in bed with the flu! Honestly I swear these girls will make anything and everything!
I love that the bricks are a good size for little hands as its always good to have something here for my grandson to play with too. The fact the tower can be built to well over the height of my 4 year old is perfect as its novelty for them to keep building instead of getting bored with smaller pieces.
We have used the bricks as part of our home school sessions involving counting, learning colours and maths. I love that it can all be packed away in minutes and these ones are big enough to see before you stand on them too!
