Want To Know More?

Little ones will have hours of fun playing with these bright Building Bugs, and there are lots of ways to play too: sorting the colours and counting the bugs is perfect for building colour recognition and numeracy skills, while bringing the bugs to life through pretend play will inspire the imagination. Arranging them into patterns and stacking them also helps to boost dexterity skills and hand-to-eye coordination.

You can also play a fun falling tower game with the Building Bugs: stack them up in groups of three, with each layer facing in alternating directions. You've finished building the tower, take turns to remove a bug one at a time, being careful not to make the tower topple. For an even more challenging game, place the removed bug back at the top of the tower!

Suitable from 24 months.

Don't Forget...

… We have more classic games designed for little hands to choose from.

Ask a question

how big are they? Do they come in a box? Don't want something to big or heavy as its going across to the USA. Cheers.

Asked by: Sophie
They do come in a box approx 30cm by 10cm it's not heavy at all. Although the pieces are made of a hollow plastic they are very sturdy. Hope this helps
