Bigjigs Safari Building Blocks: A Review

With a sister a few years older than her, it's not very often that Evie gets shiny new toys of her very own. The majority of her toys might be hand-me-downs but luckily for her they are all still like new, because I have a thing for old fashioned wooden toys that are super easy to keep clean and last forever!

But nothing beats getting a parcel from Bigjigs, especially when it contains a building block set, which just so happens to be your favourite type of toy!

We already have the wooden Rolling Shape Sorter from Bigjigs, which has six different coloured and shaped blocks that Evie loves to stack on top of each other and, to me, the Safari Building Blocks set is a natural progression from this toy. For ages one and upwards, it's made up of 32 different shaped blocks, including six animals, the sun and moon, some trees and flowers and some plain and coloured ones too.

The colours are bright and bold and there are some lovely details, such as the animal blocks having faces on the front, and having the back of the animals head on the reverse.

The toy is meant to help develop dexterity and balance skills (both of which it most definitely does) but it is also perfect for learning colours, shapes and animals, counting and encouraging imaginative play.

Daisy and Evie both love the blocks - Daisy is four - and they have been playing with them together really nicely. I think the fact there are plenty of them helps, but Evie has just started to appreciate her big sister's help in building super high towers too!

A part of the toy that I didn't expect to be so much fun was the little drawstring storage bag that came with it - Evie loves tipping all the blocks out and putting them back in again which makes it a great game to play close to tidy up time!

The Bigjigs Safari Building Blocks are available from the Bigjigs website here for £11.99. You can also follow Bigjigs on Twitter here for information on new products and special offers.
