I rather like these Simbrix – they are a bit like those beads that you iron but they interlock so don’t fall apart all the time. Plus they look a bit Minecraft-y. The all-new Simbrix kits are a parent’s dream and a children’s Christmas wish. Suitable for ages 6+, these award-winning, multi-coloured simulated bricks connect and hold together bit by bit without any ironing, forming an inspirational array of designs, which can be easily made and re-made. From wonderful wildlife to crazy celebrity creations, there’s no limit to the imagination when you’re young at heart! Simbrix is available from Amazon. For details visit www.simbrix.com
