The Newest Toy to Hit the Market – Your Hearing About it Here First


You probably don’t know about Simbrix and it’s not because they are hidden on the shelves,  it’s because they are a hugely popular product in Europe and now they are launching here in Canada for the first time (lucky us).

I don’t know where to begin because there are so many things I love about this new toy Simbrix.

A Contained Mess: If you know me, you know I hate toy mess, it drives me CRAZY!!!! It’s like my boys know this about me and purposely take their toy and flip it upside down so it scatters all over the floor and then likely within 10 minutes someone steps on a piece and ends up in tears (by the way it’s usually me). Well Simbrix comes in this amazing, two level plastic container and has a handle for easy carrying. First impression … like WOW!


Be Your Own Designer: the Genius kit comes with a large stack of cards and by colour they show you how to make a fun design. The cards start with easier images and then gets to harder images giving the little one’s a challenge which is great for different age groups.


Let’s Get Creative: Getting my kids off their device is always a challenge (don’t judge), but as soon as I unpacked this and showed it to him he immediately put down his iPad and asked how it works. He decided to be CRAZY and use his imagination. He decided to make a face and after countless hours of working on it, he finished and was so proud of himself (frankly so was I).


Keep It or Leave It:  once your mini is done with their design and feeling proud of themselves, there is a chance they will want to keep it and collect their beautiful masterpieces not to worry, all you need is parchment paper and an iron to preserve their creations. HOWEVER, if they don’t really care and are onto the next design, simply pull apart the Simbrix pieces and put them back in their case. The beauty of not keeping their designs is that you will never run out of the pieces or colours.

Assembly: slide two Simbrix pieces into each other … that’s it! It’s just that easy.


Word of Advice: obviously I had a lot of fun making a design with my son (because I love testing the toys for myself), I HIGHLY recommend when making something, start from one side and work your way in. Do not do the outline and fill the inside, I found myself having to rearrange the way the Simbrix pieces connect (left side, right side, top and bottom is how they connect).
