Epic Imaginary Play with Gigi Big Building Blocks!
Bigjigs Play Patrol Our Latest Mission!
We were very excited to arrive home from our holiday to find a new delivery from the lovely people at Bigjigs. We opened the packaging box to discover we had been sent a box… full of boxes! Although not just any old boxes, they were the new Gigi Big Building Blocks to be precise. These are basically flat strong cardboard sheets ready for you to make up in to bricks and then you can just get on and play with them however you like.
The blocks were quite tricky to make up to start with and I needed my Dad to help with this but once they were done Lottie and I couldn’t wait to get started.
In the set we were sent they came as a mixture of double and single bricks but can be purchased in several different combinations depending on what you want to use them for – this set of bricks has been perfect for everything we have wanted to use them for so far but we might like to add to them in the future.

The bricks stack up really well and can be used to make almost anything you can imagine- we have made a boat, a fort, a person and a television which we had great fun doing shows behind as well as lots of walls and mazes. The bricks are great fun in themselves just for building and using your imagination but also awesome because you can actually play inside your creation.

The other nice thing is that because of the cardboard they are made of you could even paint or draw pictures or patterns on them- we haven’t done this yet but we definitely want to – maybe once we have build the perfect house we will decorate it!

I really liked these blocks and Lottie loved them too- we did have some little arguments about what we wanted to build but we soon started working as a team and really enjoyed sharing ideas together. My Mum liked the blocks to as she said she liked watching us really use our imaginations and loved how much time we spent playing with just this one set – this really was the perfect toy to spend the last few days of the school holiday enjoying and I can see us using them a lot more in the future too.
