What our experts think
The Plus-Plus Starter Kit is great for inspiring creativity and encouraging children to construct different geometric shapes. Building different constructions helps to improve dexterity and hand-eye coordination. The older children enjoyed using their creativity and imagination to build upon the patterns laid out in the booklet, while the younger children did find it a bit tricker but still gave it a go.
Our testers really enjoyed engaging in imaginative play with their finished creations. We also found it great for nurturing numeracy skills, as the adults challenged the children to form different 2D and 3D shapes. We liked that there was enough pieces for several children to play with at the same time, however, our testers would have liked more designs to be able to copy and create.
