Building blocks and construction toys of all kinds are much used in our home and I love it that way as I am a huge fan of good “old fashioned” toys – ones that we as parents used to play with and ones we can still play with alongside our kids! Don’t get me wrong we have allowed technology to infiltrate – but only recently when my son turned 6 and then always with rules and guidelines in place! Fortunately it hasn’t become an addiction (yet!) and he still loves to play with his toys – lego type blocks are always at the top of that list so as I mentioned in a previous post I was super excited to come across Brickland earlier this year – a website selling “lego” type bricks of a similar quality but at a more pocket-friendly price!
As “gifts” is my main “love language” (awesome book – read it!) I adore buying gifts but I realized recently that our present purchases were making up a large percentage of our budget especially as we have a large extended family! Now when I am finding presents for friends and family I still look for things that will be perfect for the recipient but I also need to remember that the gift must be within our budget! With the financial year most of us have had it’s always a pleasure to discover a bargain and Brickland certainly meets that requirement – they have a great range of quality, brick construction toys for boys and girls all at a great price! If you have kids in your life – be them your own, your grandkids or your nieces or nephews – you will be as thrilled as I am to discover them especially considering the prices of similar bricks! Prices range from R40 – R850 but their website makes it really easy to stick to your budget with different price range categories such as R40 – R149 and R150 – R349.
