What Do You Get Inside The Strictly Briks Brik Tower
- 2x 6″ blue base plates
- 2x 6″ green base plates
- 2x 6″ grey base plates
- 10 green stackers
- 20 blue stackers
- 20 Grey Stackers
First impressions were that the colour combination was a bit dull but I’m glad to say you can get some much nicer colour combinations available.
The boards and stackers seem to be well made, although a bit flimsier to feel than other brick brands, and the corners are quite sharp.
The baseplates can be stacked in a variety of ways and heights and the stackables bricks can also be used to create walls within the base plate areas which means this is a great expansion kit to use with similar construction brick sets. The lack of green stackers was disappointing and I’d have preferred 15 of each colour.
It has the potential for lots of fun especially if combined with other Strictly Brik kits or even lego style bricks and could even make a great shelf to display miniature figures. As I said before I don’t think the colour combination is that stimulating but as far as this set goes it works and there are other clours and sizes to choose from. At around £10 it’s not bad value for money and if your child loves construction bricks I’m sure they’ll love this… just get one of the colourful ones!
