Every child loves “Bricks” sets. I have children from 12 to 30 and every one of them have had tons of sets – it is decades now that I cannot walk around my house with bare feet! There is so much that can be done with them and when our oldest children were young the only thing that existed were basic brick sets – different sizes but still basic. But times have certainly changed.
Now sets can be used to not only work on spatial skills and basic STEM behaviors but now we can work on math and reading too with the new AlphaBriks & MathBriks Set! This is your basic brick (brik) platform base but with the addition of briks that are numerical as well as letters and symbols.
This set comes with a book about the brik options available from Strictly Briks.
The baseplate is 10×10 (inches) and there are a total of 200 briks. We can use it to leave notes for one another, lists, practice math, work with our grandchildren on reading games etc… It reminds me of the refrigerator magnets but so much better and much more fun. This set is designed for ages 4-12 but is also available in a silicone version for ages 3-5. I can think of many ways to use this for older than 12. One way is also for blog posts! We can custom make signs for our photos. Or for my in-laws who live with us – I can see this being an excellent tool for the elderly population to keep their minds fresh!
The briks are easy to press down and remove – you don’t need to apply a great deal of pressure to push them down nor do you need to pry them off when you are ready.
They come with their own pouch to store the pieces in and if you want more letters and numbers depending on what you are doing with it (perhaps a classroom) – just purchase another set and you will have a total of 400 pieces!
Clearly my daughter wanted chinese for dinner that night…
This is perfect for home schooling, a full classroom, afterschool programs and more.
Available at Strictly Briks as well as on Amazon international marketplaces in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy. Plus look for Strictly Briks at any of the over 25 Bricks and Minifigs retail locations.
