PlayPlax Review and Giveaway

Look, what arrived last week:


Originally designed for toy company Trendon, by Patrick Rylands in 1966, Playplax was a best seller at the time and is in the permanent collection at the V&A Museum of Childhood. It hasn't been around for years but now Portobello Games have bought the toy, found the original factory that made it in Cheshire and PlayPlax is back in the play rooms!
In the box, you get 48 interlocking squares. They are in beautiful colours. If you are a regular reader, you know how much we love toys that foster imagination and creativity.
Here are a few things that  my daughter made:

building a tower

a carousel for our little people
and a bus for our animal friends

I am very happy to be able to giveaway this toy to two lucky readers, thanks to Portobello Games.
