Surely if you have been in a Five Below (NOT Five and Below) recently you have noticed these lego-like toys called Micro Brix.
Touted as the world’s tiniest building blocks, Micro Brix is currently sold for $3 which is a perfect price point if you aren’t ready to make the investment. Now, I’ve been an occasional shopper of the Five Below up the street from my place but I don’t think I’ve ever noticed these in the store.
Micro Brix Pros:
Affordable gift for kids and adults
Beautiful finished product
Extra pieces provided just in case one goes missing
Micro Brix Cons:
Hard to follow instructions
Blocks are slippery and lightweight
Requires a lot of patience
Both sets took us about two hours total to complete and it was a joy to put together on a Sunday before the work week. While many may call these Lego-lite, I would highly reccomend them adults who have some down time or parents who are on a budget. While Jamea teaches 3rd grade, she agrees that this would be a perfect STEM-focused gift for kids 9yrs and older.
I think we will head back and pick up some additonal ones for the long weekend. Stay Tuned!
