Great for your child's development:
The Build It Construction Starter Set is an inspiring open-ended building toy for your child to enjoy. This toy is fantastic for encouraging your child to think creatively, and for giving them the confidence to try out their own ideas. Your child will develop their problem-solving and thinking skills as they work on their models. Using the screwdriver and spanner on the nuts and bolts is a great way for your child to develop fine motor skills, which are so useful for playing, drawing, dressing and writing later on. Building toys – such as a vehicle or animal – is a fun start to imaginative play. Your child can build a robot dog, then enjoy bringing it to life as they enjoy some rewarding pretend play.

ELC star quality:
We love the Build It Construction Starter Set because it is a classic inspiring building toy that offers your child such rewarding play. This building set puts your child in charge, and because it is so wonderfully open-ended, your child will enjoy coming back to the Build It Construction Starter Set again and again. As they grow, your child can enjoy building more complex constructions, and inventing fun imaginative games to play with them. The combination of fun for little hands and exciting ideas for growing minds makes the Build It Construction Starter Set a really valuable toy, which will last your child for years of rewarding creative building play. Combine with other Build It sets for even more fun.

Playing tips:

Build a toy
Let's put the chunky building pieces together. We can use the spanner, or just our hands. We can make a trolley and push toys around in, or build a friendly robot with swivelling eyes.

Big imagination
Let's build something unique, and use our imagination to make it amazing. We can create a car, dog, dumper or weird dinosaur with a swivelling eye or two! The fun is in building and changing it, whenever we like.

Great for:
Building your own toys
Making new creations every day
Great practice for little hands
Learning to use a tool
Discovering how it works for yourself
Working together with Mum or Dad
Designing your own vehicle – or creature.

Leamington Spa GB
Really good for imagination and building things together. He really enjoys put things together. Like the car, lorry, robot and then leaves them up and plays with them for a few days. Then makes something else. Highly recommend it.

Bought this for my 3 year old son. He loves it although he can't quite manage to do the bolts up by himself but with a bit of help we've had a dog, wheelbarrow, car, lorry, truck...

This is an excellent construction kit. Purchased for grandson of almost three who started making the different models with his granddad but quickly got into making his own designs. Would highly recommend.

Both the 3 year old, for whom it was bought, plus his 8 year old brother has already had hours of fun. It is great for hand/eye co-ordination, manipulative skills and imaginative play. Just wish there were more sets so that the boys could build even bigger models.

This set was used to extend a smaller car set and my Garndson took to it straight away, ignoring other presents to build the robot. This then became his constant companion for the rest of Christmas.

Leeds GB
Only 1 thing to note. Its not as big as it makes out int he picture. By the picture it looks like it is nearly as big as the kids but in real life its a bit smaller than that. Other than that it is a great product and im very happy with my purchase.
