Click-A-Brick Animal Kingdom Safari Set Review

My daughters have a few Lego and Mega Bloks sets and they love building and making things using their imagination. Of course they like to follow the directions too, so that they can copy the image on the box, but most of the time, they just build whatever they can think of.

This is actually the first time I heard about Click-A-Brick and I was excited to find out how my daughters would like it.

The Click-A-Brick came in colorful box with a drawing of the things we can possibly build.
The box contained the following:
- An instructional booklet
- 8 pcs. of the yellow brick
- 8 pcs. of the brown brick
- 5 pcs. of the flat brown brick
- 2 eyes
- 2 pcs. of the yellow triangular brick
- 2 pcs. of the brown triangular brick
- 1 yellow S-shaped brick
- 2 brown S-shaped bricks

There were 30 pcs. of bricks in total and each brick is made of non-toxic, ABS plastic. The bricks are sturdy and bigger than the small Lego pieces.
The instructions for the Click-A-Brick came with only a diagram of how to put the pieces together. As the blocks look different than Lego and Mega Bloks, my daughters, who are 3 and 6, didn't exactly get it the first time. Since the blocks have holes all around, I had to guide my daughters on how to do the only puzzle which has instructions, the lion. I had to guide them, and even I, was confused and took a bit of time to figure out how the blocks would interconnect with each other.

For the lion, I spent less than 30 minutes doing it. I had to do and re-do it, as well as figure out what I was doing wrong (the holes were a bit confusing) but as soon as I got the hang of it, it seems much easier to build and rebuild it.
My daughters saw the lion I made and was excited to play with it. The three of us had to figure out how to do the other figures because, as I've said, the only instructions printed on the instruction sheet was that of the lion.

I like these bricks/blocks because they look different than Lego and Mega Bloks and they require a much more active imagination. Now, my daughters can make a tower-looking building by themselves using these bricks but not yet able to do the animal figures themselves.

If your child finds Lego and Mega Bloks a bit easy already, you should give this set of bricks from Click-A-Brick a try because they're much more harder and challenging.
