 When it comes to old school retro toys from my childhood , stickle bricks and plasticine have got to be up there with the top 10 favourites.

I couldn’t get enough of stickle bricks as a child , and all three girls have absolutely loved them too and we have the biggest collection known to man kind - not even an exaggeration!.

Nila was kindly sent some more to add to her collection  and she was over the moon. , more stickle bricks means more things to build, and we have a serious builder on our hands :)

Stickle bricks are so easy to use , they are great for hand eye co ordination and helps little ones with their concentration .

Imagination runs wild when building and creating and we have hours of fun with stickle . They have been around for decades and still one of the most popular children’s toys!.

‘Run, run as fast as you can , you can’t catch me I’m the stickle brick man’. Making stickle brick people is always super fun and all the pieces slot together with ease.

They are aimed at children aged 18months + and can be purchased from  Smyths Toys

Another family favourite is Plasticine, another old school one. We would always get some in a party bag back in the day :) 

We got sent a big bundle of plasticine goodies too and had a blast outside playing .

We actually recreated some Montessori figures which Nila spent ages playing with . Plasticine lasts forever and it never dries out .

Hours and hours of fun and the possibilities are endless!.

These sets all come with cutters and accessories to use so a great little starter set for anyone and a great birthday gift too.

Plasticine is aimed at children aged 5+ and can be purchased from Smyths Toys.
