Exercise N Play

Today I’ll be writing a review for Exercise N Play. Exercise N Play asked me to review one of their building block sets. I had a quick browse and instantly became intrigued. These building bricks are compatible with other branded bricks. Including some Danish branded brick 😉.

Anyway, back to Exercise N Play, you get a huge selection of sets from military, police, ocean, transport, space and many more. I chose a space explorer set, which has 1091 pieces, so it should be quite the test. The first notable thing you notice with the Exercise N Play sets is the price, if you’ve seen other branded sets, you’ll know exactly what I mean.

Is the Exercise N Play set any good? Time to test it out!

Packaging and Contents.

The Exercise N Play comes packaged in a blue cardboard box which shows product images printed on it. The box measures 41.5cm x 31.5cm x 10.0cm.

Inside the box you’ll find 11x separate numbered bags, 1x brick separator, 2x sheets of stickers, and 1x illustrated step-by-step instruction. You’ll be pleased to hear the instruction manual is clear and easy to follow, the set I have is broken down onto 78 pages.

You also get a brick separator tool. The tool is very clever as it can be rotated and flipped to suit a multitude of brick removals. There’s a prong on the underside to help push rodded parts into certain bricks.

Exercise N Play.

You get 11 separate numbered bags with the set I selected. Each one collates to the instruction manual and helps you to easily piece together each component of the set. The set I have has 6 separate builds that make up the complete build.

I thoroughly enjoyed building each piece, some even have open elements that allow you to use a crane for example, adding an extra element to your build and use. I think each piece is simply brilliant. Very detailed and very high quality too. You know that well-known brick brand, well, the Exercise N Play feels exactly the same to handle.

Exercise N Play does supply some extra spares, especially the little pieces that may become lost in the build. I thought this was a nice touch, and very welcomed as I lost a couple of pieces myself. The recommended age for this kit is 6 and above.

I really like the Exercise N Play set. I found the step-by-step instruction manual very easy to follow. There’s nothing negative to say to be honest, I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the build. You get excellent value for money in my opinion.

If you’d like to purchase this item, please check out the purchasing options below. The RRP for this product is £79.99.

Its worth noting the space set I reviewed is only available on Amazon. The Exercise N Play website has different models available. The website allows for worldwide postage but all currency is in USD, which is slightly annoying for those based outside of the USA.
