Bunchems! from Spin Master are clever little colourful balls that stick together and can be built up to create 3D structures simply and easily. Just as quick you have built one, you can also pull it apart and rebuild into something totally different. My children have been eyeing this up over the last few months so I knew they’d be eager to try them out and have fun seeing if they were as good as they thought from the adverts!
We received a Mega Pack and Under the Sea glow in the dark pack of Bunchems! to try out. Within these sets there are plenty of coloured pieces to start playing with a long with what I thought was a good selection and variety of accessories which can be stuck onto your creations to add personality and bring them alive.
My 6yr old who has been eager to try these for a while, got stuck straight in and was building things all by himself. I was really impressed at how easy and quick they are to build and certainly kept both him and his 9yr old entertained all afternoon. The circle pieces have tiny hooks on the end of the spikes which simply hook together as you push them close. There are also small holes in one side which the accessories attach to.
Within just a few minutes my little boy had recreated this rather cute bird that he saw on the front of the box. He was very proud of it and I was amazed he made it so quickly and independently.
Before long I was being shown lots of wonderful creations – they all look fabulous!
I think Bunchems! are great and perfect for a range of ages although I’d say my 6yr old enjoyed them the most. They are non messy and great to do on a table or tray and can just be stored in a box when play has finished (we found a lidded plastic box perfect). For a different way to craft, create and have fun, then Bunchems! are a great toy to try out.
