Building Imagination with Brackitz
STEM Product Review
Brackitz have been one of our favorite STEM products for awhile now. We were introduced to them around a year ago and since then have made many fun projects with the wide range of sets we have. This past week we had the pleasure of playing with this new Driver set. It’s all about designing your own car. I knew the kids would be excited and we couldn’t wait to see what kind of car we could build. It includes 43 pieces for use in building your own driving machine! I knew they were going to come up with something fun!
Brackitz are unique plastic manipulative construction toys that snap together nearly anywhere and you can design your own awesome creations with. This set came with wheels to create rubber band cars. It has an idea you can use to create on the box but we like to free build. This set actually comes with 10 designs ideas!
The first step to exploring any new STEM product is experimentation. The first thing we did was check out all the included pieces. There are plenty enough to build an awesome car inside. I love the bright colors of the pieces. They really stick out!
Our first attempt didn’t roll because we had a few pieces touching the ground. That is what makes this such an awesome product because they are so easy to change and move around to build your design. In the end we created this beauty that rolled perfectly and actually moved quite fast across the floor.
Brackitz are one of those products that kids have fun with and don’t even realize they are using their engineering and creative thinking skills. They are perfect for fine motor practice and once you get your car built, they can even become gross motor skill builders as they chase their cars across the living room floor.
There are several different sets that can be used to build lots of different projects. They also work great together. As you add to your sets, you are adding to your designs! We have built everything from robots to houses with these fun and colorful tools!
