Construction kits are something that all the children have enjoyed doing from a young age. They allow them to use their imaginations and get creative. So when we were asked if we would like to try Bizzy Bitz I was intrigued as it wasn’t a construction kit I had previously heard of.
We were to receive a Bizzy Bitz 350 piece Builders Set and after a horrible day out during half term we returned to find it had arrived. Immediately the children wanted to investigate, something over a week later I am still grateful for because after a horrible day it brought the children together and enabled dad of 3 and myself to get on with dinner and catch our breath.
That first evening the children all sat around the box of Bizzy Bitz for almost two hours before and after dinner. They were glued to it and the creation booklets that came with the set. By the time it was time to go to bed Trystan had built a tank from the pieces, he was really pleased with it too and insisted on putting it up on the side until the following day.
The Bizzy Bitz 350 piece builders set is aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 9 years old. However Erin at three was also very taken with the set and happily sat alongside her brothers experimenting with the different pieces. The following morning Erin and I woke to find her brothers sat around the box in the sitting room while watching cartoons, each happily building a creation. Erin was quick to join her brothers and the four of them sat getting creative while I had breakfast and did some cleaning.
When I had finished I went to join them and took a closer look at the building set which was keeping them all occupied. The pieces fit together using a clever ball and socket system, something I hadn’t seen before in a construction set. So I decided to pop on to the Bizzy Bitz website, which you can find here. I wanted to know more about Bizzy Bitz and the people behind it. I discovered that Bizzy Bitz was developed by a husband and wife team who had both worked with children for over 25 years. Having done some research they created Bizzy Bitz, a sturdy but flexible pieces that fit together using the ball and socket system. Bizzy Bitz has been created to help children enjoy hours of creative play, the possibilities are endless.
The older two have enjoyed creating different models from the creation booklets while Erin and Rowan have been using the set to make their own creations. Just over a week since we received the kit and it is still keeping them entertained. After the children have finished the pieces can be neatly packed away back in the box which then can be stored away. I like the fact the pieces do not completely fill the box and even with the creation booklets in the box there is room for you to store some of your creations safely too. Anything that can engage all four children who span ages three to eleven and keep them entertained for hours, will get the thumbs up from me. I hope Bizzy Bitz continues to keep the children engaged as it has been. The children have certainly given it a big thumbs up.
The Bizzy Bitz 350 pieces builders set costs £37.99 which I think is good if you compare it to other construction sets of a similar size. If you would like to find out more about the this set you or to buy your own you can find them here. There is also more in the Bizzy Bitz range for you to explore from a 63 piece set to a much larger 850 piece set.
