Who’d have ever thought I would enjoy playing with Bunchems? The kids did as well and still enjoy making their own creations but I was completely hooked at making the perfect owl.
We were sent the Bunchems Mega Pack and Glow in the Dark Sea Animals to review.
Bunchems are colourful little balls that connect to each other allowing you to build your own creations. They can be pulled apart so you can build something new whenever you want.
The Bunchems Mega Pack includes 370 Bunchems, 36 accessories and an instruction guide. We created a tiger and an owl to start with. I like that there are also accessories that help to add more depth to the creations.
The Glow in the Dark Under the Sea pack includes 40 Glow in the Dark White Bunchems, 40 Blue Bunchems, 40 Purple Bunchems, 40 Orange Bunchems, 40 Green Bunchems, 13 Accessories and an Instruction Guide.
The glow in the dark Bunchems are quite cool and really do glow in the dark.
The children of course love the Bunchems and spend their time creating all sorts of weird stuff. They can really give in to their creativity.
I also enjoyed creating with Bunchems. Don’t you try out your children’s toys too?
They are great for motor skills as well as creativity. The Bunchems stick to each other well so that you can create 3D shapes without a problem. Also it does help that the animals you make can actually stand.
The instruction guide include step-by-step instructions making it easy for younger ones to follow too.
The sets are aimed at children aged 4+ and I do feel that this is the correct target age.
Please do read the warning on the pack as the Bunchems should not get tangled in hair. They would be difficult to remove. Having said this, there is no worry of it getting entangled when one is building. My little one has very long hair and we didn’t get any tangled.
I would definitely recommend to encourage motor skills and creativity in children.
The Mega Pack is priced at about £24.99 and the Under the Sea pack is priced at £17.99
