Lucas was recently sent* some Plus-Plus to review. Plus- Plus is a fun, interactive building system where a child can be creative and strengthen motor skills with shape, colour and form. Plus-Plus are interlocking building shapes that require only the child’s imagination. You can build 2D or 3D and mix and match different sets of them. There are bigger shapes, ideal for 1 years and over and then smaller ones aimed at 5-12 year olds. Toys like these are great for an abundance of things at this age, from their dexterity, hand eye co-ordination and encouraging free play to use their imagination and explore the world themselves.
Within the sets, there are diagrams suggesting how to make certain characters and shapes. They are not full on instructions though, which i really liked, as it involved problem solving for both myself and Lucas, and made us think whilst we were building. We have both really enjoyed creating shapes and buildings with them and I found it quite relaxing. If you are into adult colouring or crafts, I would definitely recommend trying some of these as it’s quite therapeutic!
I love that you don’t need anything other than these blocks too and that they don’t take up too much space, they are fab for popping in a pencil case and taking out when you are going on a journey or somewhere that you know, a little entertainment will be needed at some point. They are a great boredom buster and I love how versatile it is for building skill and age, it’s rare that you can get a product to keep any age occupied.
