~I received Brackitz™ for review. Opinions and stories are my own.~
Today I sat down with my 8 year old son and we broke out the Brackitz set we received a few days ago and played for over an hour. Brackitz are unique, connect-anywhere builders that allow kids to construct simple to complex structures using planks. We started our project journey with the Creater Set making a Dragon Castle!
The award-winning Creator Set includes:
- (30) Wood Planks
- (5) Blue 90° Connectors
- (5) Orange 90° Connectors
- (5) Yellow 120° Connectors
- (5) Red 120° Connectors
There are so many possibilities with the Creator Set that it makes a great starter. The wood planks and connectors are also built strong and hold together “very tight” as my son says. This is perfect since his little sisters can’t destroy his masterpieces. That has always lead to an angry upset boy and confused little girls that just want to play.
I love how Brackitz are not only so much fun for little builders, but they push imagination and education. I watched my son count and solve mathematical problems while describing what he was doing with his building. It’s exciting to see what his imagination allows him to create. Maybe next time we will create a spaceship or a race track for the monster trucks! This is a great way to enjoy inside time during the rainy days this summer!
The best part is the clean up can be fun for kids too. My son counted and organized the pieces to fit perfectly back into the box without a single complaint. Which, for every mom, is a huge bonus.
Brackitz also offers an Architect Set, a Master Builder Set and a huge Building Center with 400 pieces! You can also get tons of ideas by visiting their Idea Center and/or share your own by emailing in your best building. If you grab a set this summer, make sure to let us know your favorite creations too!
