We wanted to get my daughter something different for her christmas that would last a while as she's tired very easily of her other toys. When I saw this in ELC, it reminded me of the old big builder products we had and I jumped on it straight away. ~~ The Product ~~ Build it seems to be the new version of big builder that early learning centre used to sell. It's basically a construction set for little people to play with and use their imagination to build something new every time. It comes with over 75 pieces so you never run out of things to do. The pieces include nuts, bolts, plastic strips with holes in (all different shapes) and some box type ... Read the complete review

I had this toy as a child. I have mild cerebral palsy and my parents bought this for me when I was around 4 years old to help with my motor skills and co-ordination. Not only did it help me I have fond memories of building a pram and a wheelbarrow with my sisters.

There is even a screwdriver and spanner to make it more full for little hands to play with (although parents can easily screw bits together without these). There are two main box shaped pieces, four wheels, 2 eyes, and a range of connecting pieces to fit them all together. There are plenty of nuts and ... Read the complete review

I bought this christmas '08 for my, then, 2 year old son; although he mostly had me making things for him and claiming them as his once i'd finished for a while! He soon figured out the point of it and made his own uses for the pieces aswell. Obviously, coming from the Early Learning Centre you expect a decent quality product that is good value for money long term and this genuinely is. With over 75 colourful pieces (probably 76, i didn't count) there's a lot of scope build-wise. All the pieces are strong and durable and a great size for little hands. The set is complete with a spanner and screwdriver so they can be like proper little builders, and ... Read the complete review
