A couple of weeks ago Lucas was sent* a BRIO builder deluxe set to review. The set is aimed at children from 3 years of age and contains an incredible 270 pieces! It inspires a huge selection of wooden and plastic components and 4 tools for free play. There are also pieces that include eye graphics to enable character play.
At the age of 3, children’s hand-eye coordination becomes refined, and fine motor skills are improving through handling small objects which this set is perfect to encourage.
The set comes with some ideas of what to build but not instructions, it’s is all about imaginative play and learning through play to explore, discover and create what the child wants. We did try to make the crane that was pictured but struggled with the pieces in the set, there was one part that needed something that isn’t in the set but that being said I do think it’s a fab set.
There are so many possibilities that this set can be used again and again and will last many years. As Lucas becomes older and his skills improve he will be able to make more and more creations. Lucas is really enjoying playing with it and also Grandad too!
