We’re in the midst of the Formula One season at the moment, and of course Monkey and I are avid watchers. Seeing a race taking place amongst the streets of Baku in Azerbaijan at the weekend was rather surreal, it has to be said. I’ll be off to Silverstone again next month for the British Grand Prix, I still think Monkey is too young to enjoy the weekend properly so for now I’ve come up with a solution to keep him happy. He’ll be creating memories with Liberty Trading and having his own Oxfordshire Grand Prix!
I’m always on the look out for gifts that are a little bit different, and the online retailer, Liberty Trading has a great selection of unusual gifts for all the family. I quite liked their Instant Table Tennis set as we’ve haven’t had the opportunity to play since our visit to Coombe Mill last year. But then I spotted the Formula One Building Brick set for £31.99 and knew that was meant for us.
The set is aimed at children aged 6 years and over, so perfect for a 6 year old Monkey. The brand is Jubilux, which is compatible with other brick construction sets, but a brand we’ve not tried before. It comes with 3 racing cars and drivers, a podium, breakdown truck, race control and pits sections. It was love at first sight for Monkey.
We spent an evening putting the set together, creating memories with Liberty Trading, as we did so. Monkey is getting so much better at following instructions and buildings things for himself. We work well as a team, and I was rather impressed with the quality of the set. The instructions were considerably better than other non Lego brick construction sets we’ve had, not perfect, but not bad to follow at all. The stickers were easy to place and the set has been played with every day since we completed it.
We’ve had races and crashes and celebrations on the podium. I know Monkey will be having lots of fun with this set in the months to come, and it’s a bargain in my opinion.
If you’ve got a football fan in the house, they have a whole range of gift ideas available over at Liberty Trading, and I know of a friend’s daughter who would love their LED Light Up Laces too. The prices are reasonable, the range offers something a little different and I’ve found the service good.
