As soon as my daughters saw the Flexo Bricks they hassled me non stop until I relented and let them open the pack. I hadn't had chance to examine the contents before they got in to the packs with was a rookie error!

My 8 year old daughter came to me with the bracelet pack which we opened and it contained flexible 'tendons' which were in a gel pack stuck together, some 2 x 2 pieces and some triangle bits. She had no idea how to separate the tendons and as I pulled one apart I thought there must be a simpler way. I found that if you stretched the pack, the tendons did start to separate which made it easier to pull them apart. The real fun came when we tried to put the tendons into the gaps in the bricks and my 8 year old couldn't do it. I was silently cursing thinking this was going to be a mission and struggled to put the tendons in place with my fingers, wondering how on earth anybody could put these in easily! I did develop a technique of pushing them in place although some tendons kept trying to escape. We finally finished the bracelet as per the instructions which were easy and comprehensive to follow.

I then looked at the other packs (there are 5 in total) and realized my rookie error as one of the packs contained a pack of Multitools!! These claim to be 'the perfect companion when building with Flexo which you'll find invaluable!' Once my daughter used the multitool she was off and mum was only needed when she couldn't get some of the tendons out. She successfully made the 'Glow in the Dark Spaceball' by herself and showed me how it glowed in her wardrobe. My 10 year old made the starfish and I had 15 minutes of peace and quiet!!

The Foil Pack Collection is a great introduction to Flexo and a great present for any child that loves using building blocks. There are enough bits that you can combine and make other creations and you can use your existing building block collection with them which is great. The foil packs come in a large resealable bag which means they can be contained and used when out and about.
