Plus Plus Mini Basic 250 – competition

You may remember that I wrote a while ago about a wonderfully addictive product called Plus Plus that I’d found through the great online toy-shop The Toadstool.  There are 2 different sizes of Plus Plus – the MIDI and the smaller MINI that we have, different pack quantities and a couple of colour options.  I reviewed the Plus Plus Mini Basic 250.

Well since my last post we’ve been busy using our Plus Plus Mini Basic to make a number of things which you can see on my Plus Plus Pinterest board.

My 3 and half year old son loves me to make him things with Plus Plus, while he sorts it into colours and makes piles of it to use as rubble for his diggers to pick up – it works very well in a number of ways!  I’m quite addicted to Plus Plus and am quite happy for Monkey to place his orders and for me to make him something.

The country is now mad for Smurfs (I am old enough to remember them the first time round, oh how I wish I’d kept my cuddly toy Smurf!).  So Monkey set me a challenge ….

Mummy make me a Smurf friend for my Smurf please!

Well I never said I was an artist!  But Monkey quite liked it.  You can see that the pieces slot together, you can make 3D objects and bend the structures.  The only limit to Plus Plus is your imagination.  This is something that can be enjoyed by all the family.  I can see this as something you could use as a Plus Plus alternative to Pictionary as Monkey grows up.  it’s certainly not something that will get shoved in a box and not used after a while, it is simply ageless.  I like the fact that you can easily build countless creations with even the smallest packs, but you can buy extra ones to make larger items.  Monkey still wants me to make a Combine Harvester at some point; I’m building up to that one!

I can see some of the children in our extended family receiving the Plus Plus Mini Basic 100 packs as a little stocking filler for Christmas and I think Monkey might be asking Father Christmas for a pack of the Plus Plus Mini Basic Neon 250 to extend his colour palette!  You can see the full range available on The Toadstool website here (they even do a 650 piece set).

If you need some further inspiration please visit the #TTPlusPlus Linky we have running with a number of other #TTPlusPlus fans and you can see their creations too and you can also see their competitions too – more chances to win!

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. What a cool and fun toy! My kids would love these. I’d have to say I’m with Anna, Nemo would be my first project! The film runs every day at my house!

  2. As I made one out of a paper plate & a lot of bits of photocopy paper last week, I’d have to try and make Nemo.

  3. I’m sure my son would try to build K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider or anything with a car like Lightning McQueen!

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
