Go Vertical with Strictly Bricks ~ GIVEAWAY!

Have you ever seen a purple & pink Cafe? Or a “J” Flower? Or, what about a 13 story parking garage with an extra wing on the 12 floor for the largest car in your collection? Well, if you haven’t, you are about to! 😉 We’ve been busy creating all kinds of unique creations, ones that have never been seen before, and might never been seen again. We’ve been building things horizontally and vertically. We’ve been using our imaginations and our creativity and it’s all because of the arrival of a big box of Strictly Briks!

Strictly Briks are a brand of construction toys that do more than simply entertain. They are a toy that is all about open-ended play. They give your child the chance to think, create, imagine and build in new and exciting ways. Thus far, our favorite way to build is UP – that is, vertically! Strictly Briks makes  almost 400 different sets and colors so there is a lot to choose from. However, some of the most unique parts of their building sets are the base plates and stackable pieces. The base plates are designed to be stacked and combined with your existing bricks (Pssst….they work with other brands of building bricks too!) and the stackables are just the kind of brick you need to make stacking the base plates easy and do-able – even for little hands!

In addition to building fabulous, high, touch-the-sky stackable towers there’s also the ability to use Strictly Briks’ silicone flexible building straps. These are great for building bridges, ramps, and all kinds of exciting things like roller coasters or playgrounds! We haven’t tried these, but the certainly look like a lot of fun and would add the ability for kids to be even more creative.

Our family has been enjoying the Unique Shape Towers set which comes with everything you need to start stacking! You’ve got a colorful set of circles, triangles, half circles and squares along with a bunch of stackables. These unusual shapes are a lot of fun. From triangle parking garages to a special flower with her letter in the center of it.

The 1000 Piece Deluxe Brik Set also was a a great way to open up limitless building possibilities. The kids were busy adding their own personal touches to their creations with these extra bricks. As you can see below, there is a beautiful cafe ready to serve anyone who may enter its doors. And beside it you’ll even see a swimming pool! Now that sounds like a cafe that I would like to visit…how about you? 😉

Strictly Briks makes a wonderful, STEM based, open-ended play gift idea that is affordable and fun! I’m sure there will be many more hours of building and creating going on inside our home in the days, weeks and months to come….thanks to Strictly Briks!
