When I was offered to review the alternative construction block toy to Lego - Nanoblocks - I was intrigued to see what the boys thought of them.
Nanoblocks have been around since 2008 but to be honest I hadn`t heard of them before. They have taken Japan by storm and are featured in some of the biggest department and toy stores throughout Japan.
The main distributor of Nanoblocks in the UK is Marbel, check out the whole range available HERE
Nanoblocks are so intricate seeing is definitely believing.
The amount of Nanoblock`s in each construction set varies between 80 for the miniature sets to 6000 for the ultimate in Nanoblock creations - the Behemoth!! Prices range from £4.99 - £199.99.
We were sent the Statue of Liberty set to test out.
All I can say is WOW, these pieces ate TINY!! I`ve taken a photo next to a one pence piece to get a perspective of just how small they are.
Alfie and I sat down and laid everything out that we received on the table. Straight away I realised that even though at 7 1/2 years old and an avid Lego constructor that he was going to struggle. The pieces are just so tiny that he found it hard to hold them and press together, also the instructions were very complicated for him to understand.
I received this kit free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
