Those of you who read yesterday’s blog will know that I thought that the new LEGO Friends sets for girls don’t encourage creativity as well as they could. That got me looking for something that would, and could be enjoyed by both girls and boys.Calafant’s Build & Decorate Your Own kits are simply fantastic. Like LEGO, they easily fit together with no glue needed, to create a Palace, Robot or Treehouse. They are made entirely from white cardboard, and simply slot together. Then, they can be decorated in any way.
If you really want to let your kids’ imaginations run wild, and not get stuck into the idea of ‘Girl’s toys’ or ‘Boy’s toys’, you can’t go wrong with the Build & Decorate Your Own Kits from Calafant. If you decide to get one, perhaps to keep the kids amused this bank holiday, send us a picture! Either upload it to Facebook and tag us in it, or tweet it to us on Twitter; just be sure to mention @bird_kids in your tweet!
