The Fisher Price Trio Crazy Creatures Set are brilliant fun and a great option for over 3s who want something more grown-up than Duplo but aren’t quite ready for Lego

Flea has never been a massive fan of construction toys and struggles with Lego, while finding Duplo a little babyish for her tastes. What you get is a small box containing a series of plastic tubes which click together and apart quite easily. The Fisher Price Trio cubes can be combined with thin poles and eyeballs to make creatures – simple!

We liked: Flea opened this package while I was working and before I knew it she’d made the creature from the box – she was so pleased with herself!  She then discovered that the Fisher Price Trio Crazy Creatures Set contained a booklet with pictorial instructions on how to make half a dozen other creatures and she was off. She had great fun all afternoon and got a real sense of accomplishment out of being able to make something that looked like something.

We weren’t keen : Flea hasn’t played with these blocks again, and I wonder if they might be a little young for her, at five. There also aren’t THAT many bricks in the set, but I would guess you could easily top up with other boxes from the Fisher Price Trio range to extend the play value.

Overall: The Fisher Price Trio Crazy Creatures Set is really well made, bright and colourful and surprisingly robust, these are a perfect stepping stone from Duplo to Lego, so I’d recommend for 3-6 year olds. It’s great that children can use them easily, and make things you can actually recognise – and it means I don’t have to spend time doing that scary guessing thing, of, “Oh, it’s a … .dog?”
