My name is Nick, I live in the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne & I am the father of 2 amazing, crazy, super active boys.
By day I am Coach Nick, running soccer classes for pre-school kids aged 1 – 7 years around Melbourne & by Night I am transformed into KICKBrick™ Nick !
The bricks were originally used by us as target towers in our soccer classes & it was obvious from the start that they were a massive hit with the children. We also noticed that however crazy the sessions had been, whenever the bricks came out we got attention back very quickly. There was co-operation & a lot of focused thinking. The chaos would turn to order as challenges were set with the bricks. Shy children too who had spent the whole class clinging onto their parents leg would all of a sudden venture over to see what was going on. Inevitably the focus would turn to laughter & excitement when the wall or structure was finished & the final challenge to knock it over was announced.
On taking them home I found my boys loved them too & it increased their creative play & camaraderie. I’d say the top 3 things that I have learnt in the past 5 years as a pre-school coach are that children love to be challenged, they love structured but lively play & they also love to knock things down ! KICKBrick™ provides all of these & more. Having tested the bricks on hundreds of kids (& quite a few adults) we thought it’d be a good idea to bag some up & let everyone have a go.
We hope they enjoy them as much as us & we’d love it if you’d share your photos & videos on our Facebook page, Instagram or You Tube channel for the chance to win some cool prizes.
