Educational Insights – PlayBrix Review & Giveaway

When we go to church Dilly and Sugar enjoy listening to the music and dancing praises – we have an awesome praise team with drums, guitars, even a cow bell, hehe – but when the singing is over and the sermon starts the girls are ready to head to the nursery.  Dilly is having some separation anxiety issues being left with caregivers that are not familiar to her… makes sense she has never been to daycare and I only have a select few people I feel comfortable watching my girls…. so I typically end up hanging out in the nursery too.  There are tons of toys there for the girls to play with but Dilly always seems to gravitate towards a set of cardboard building blocks.  She has so much fun playing with them and I wondered where I could get her a set.  Turns out my my favorite website for educational toys and games – Educational Insights – has them!  I love that they carry educational toys that even toddlers can have fun with.  I was super excited (and so was Dilly) when they offered to send us our very own set to review.

Dilly was thrilled when her set of PlayBrix arrived in the mail and could barely contain her excitement while I assembled each block.  The set comes with 54 blocks – 14 large red, 10 medium green, and 30 small blue.  They are made from lightweight corrugated cardboard and are printed with a water resistant coating.  These are much more than cardboard boxes – they are designed to look like real bricks and are the size as real bricks too!  That means super sized building fun.  And when the tower comes tumbling down since the blocks are lightweight there is no worry of anyone getting hurt.  I had no concerns of the blocks holding up to the abuse of Dilly, Sugar, and their friends.  I figured if they could hold up in a nursery at church that is also used as a preschool during the week surely they could withstand the Harper girls and I was definitely right.  The kiddos have so much fun playing with the PlayBrix.

Now I know that one word from the above paragraph stood out to any parent reading this post.  ASSEMBLED.  Yes I had to fold each sheet of pre-cut cardboard into box form, but it honestly was not that bad.  Each block took maybe 30 seconds to fold, so it was approximately a half hour job.  All of the sizes fold the same way so once I start assembling I pretty much fell into a pattern and it was a breeze.  These blocks are sure to hold up to years of abuse from multiple children and once your kiddos have outgrown the block stage you could always recycle them!
