Pix Brix T-Rex Building Set Review
Pix Brix is a construction toy with an uncanny 3D pixel art appearance. They’re familiar to the building block toys you know and love, but in addition to sticking together on the top and bottom, they stick together via all sides! The tops have pegs, while the sides have very precisely molded interlocking ridges. It can take a little getting used to, sticking the bricks together this way, since the details are very small and hard to line up correctly as a result. However, the more you build, the more you get a feel for it. Also, it’s easier to stick big pieces together than one pix-brix at a time.
We built a cute little big-headed t-rex dino, and it was very fun! The instructions threw us at first, but they clicked pretty shortly after starting. Also, at points you’ll have to connect layers carefully, as you might push down pieces lower than they should be. Once done though, you’ll have a perfectly balanced and VERY solid construction! Based on how fun this small project was, we definitely recommend the Pix Brix Bucket for greater creative freedom, and the Great Wave set if you’re looking for more of an endurance challenge!
