Playtime can be so much more exciting when a child can use their own imagination to build weird and wonderful things that are why traditional toys like LEGO and Meccano are still a firm favourite when choosing a Christmas toy.

Building toys

Building toys can be found to suit all age types and gender. For younger boys and girls construction toys are fun and colourful with safe and easy to use pieces. A good example is the popular Meccano Build and Play Funky Car. The recommended age is 4 years and over and is perfect for little hands.

The strong flexible parts are made with strong plastic rather than metal and are fun and colourful to play with. Best of all, the instruction booklet shows how to build five different models including a helicopter and a plane.

ELC have a selection of building it construction toys for ages 2- 6 years and 3-8 years and it won’t cost the earth to keep those little ones happy. Kids will particularly like the Robot poppers; a popping robot and alien that make popping sounds when stretched.

One of a kind themes like Romans, Knights, Police Seaplane, Zoo, Life in the City etc come with just the right-sized pieces for little hands to grasp plus the figures are bendable with pleasant faces.

Construction toys encourage children to use their hands to create and learn dexterity. The master of the construction world has to be the LEGO company who knows a thing or two about building with their famously coloured bricks. Lego favourites include LEGO MINDSTORM NXT, Deluxe Brick Box, LEGO CITY and LEGO Star Wars.

Construction toys

Other big players include Brio and K’nex and the recent inclusion of magnetic variations like Magnext; a revolutionary new magnetic construction system that offers excellent play value for both boys and girls. Children from the ages of 6 and over can enjoy building their own magnetic magic with endless construction possibilities.

MagNext

The MagNext 360 Degrees Magnacase is a great building platform where two can build at the same time. It is compact and portable making it ideal to take on long car journeys and holidays.

Wooden toys are a bygone favourite that still holds their place as top spot when it comes to building blocks, especially for much younger children. You can’t beat the smooth feel and warmth of wooden toys that can stand up to the rough and tumble play of youngsters.

A classic toy like the Wooden Baby Walker helps develop motor skills in children and comes with colourful wooden blocks featuring letters and numbers for learning, loading stacking and unloading.

Bob the Builder Construction Playset

Still with the youngsters the Bob the Builder Construction Playset is perfect for 3-year-olds and over. They will love this amazing playset with all their favourites: Tumbler, Scoop, and Muck as well as Bob himself. Little builders can help out with the building and hear Bob call out fun phrases as the vehicles move around the site.

So whether its traditional wooden blocks, building sets or complex model kits they make ideal Christmas presents where all the family can join in and have fun building stuff together.
