I love open ended toys. If a toy gets my child thinking and imagining, it is a great toy. Brackitz does just that and more. Brackitz are unique connect anywhere building toys. Brackitz consists of planks, 4 way connectors, 3 way connectors and motion connectors.
Brackitz are really neat because you can connect the planks to any of the connectors. The motion connectors plug into the planks allowing you to make an endless amount of buildings and shapes. The motion connectors allow you to make animals or buildings that move. Bunny, 3 1/2 years, and Baby Sister, 19 months, LOVE our Brackitz. They will sit and play with Brackitz for close to an hour. For a toy, that is AMAZING. I love that Brackitz encourages not only imagination but science skills, engineering and math. I know it seems hard to believe that a simple toy can do so much but it really can!
To build a design Bunny has to really think about what she is doing. She has to figure out how many pieces she needs. Brackitz are so easy to use Baby Sister loves them. Baby Sister does need some help putting her Brackitz together and taking them apart, but Bunny needs no help! The only help she needs from me is using the motion connectors. Bunny can build so many different shapes and buildings, it is so much fun to watch her work. She has made shapes and tells me what they are, she has built animals, a necklace, a sun, fans, the list goes on! Her imagination drives her Brackitz creations. I love watching her learn right before my eyes!
We received the Inventor 44 Piece Set. We love it so much I am putting another set on our Christmas list! The 44 piece set does have a decent amount of pieces and is a great starter set. Because we have two children playing with their Brackitz we would love another set to allow them both the opportunity to play at the same time. The Inventor 44 Piece set comes with 10 long blue planks, 12 short blue planks, 4 blue 4-way connectors, 4 red 3-way connectors, 4 yellow 3-way connectors and 6 magenta motion connectors. I love that Brackitz are color coded so Bunny can see which piece she needs to finish her project.
