Who would love this: Anyone who loves building/ construction toys (especially if you are looking for a more enviromentally-friendly option).
Sometimes, what’s in my kids’ Santa wish list might not be something that the adults approve. Despite how endearingly beautiful some of the heirloom quality toys are, the sad truth is, many of them are probably just not as eye-catching as those light-blinking, battery-operated, low-cost plastic toys. Once Kids comes with a mission to bridge this gap, and I’m super delightful to receive this “Eco-bricks Color 109 Piece” from Artiwood for a review!
Why I love ❤️ it:
(1) Sustainable & Biodegradable - The amazing benefits of building bricks need no introduction. What sets Eco-bricks apart is its sustainable nature, durable, and biodegradable wooden material. Our six-year-old is a huge fan of Lego and other similar building bricks, but when he saw these Eco-bricks, he was genuinely excited - “Woah, it’s wooden!” Included within are a total of 109 pieces of bricks - 20 of 4-dot blocks (or what we commonly known as the 2x2 brick), 75 of 8-dot blocks (2x4 brick), 10 of 16-dot bases (2x8 brick), and 4 of 16-dot axle with wheels. It’s a novelty, something unique but also cool for the kids! This is a greener and more environmentally-friendly alternative to many other building bricks in market!
(2) Compatible With Other Plastic Blocks - The smooth texture of the wood exudes a “calming” effect. The bricks are compatible with other plastic blocks (our Lego mini figures were happy to go on an adventure ride on our wooden space buggy and hybrid robotic beast). The bricks might not have a similar strong clutch power in the classic plastic bricks, but they interlock well and are much easier for little hands to manage (pull apart or connect). The rolling wheels are great accessories to spice up the creations with moveable element.
(3) The Lovely Colours! - I love the aesthetically pleasing rainbow-feel, bright pastel colour scheme. I love the soothing and heart-meltingly beautiful fuchsia pink, aqua blue, lawn green, and bright yellow. There are also some natural wood bricks that the kids can customise and decorate. These bricks are made with naturally dyed non-toxic water-based tint - a safe choice for kids!
(4) Storage Box With Lid - I love the laser-engraved, sturdy and neat wooden storage box with a sliding lid.
