Trying to find a decent builder can be tricky, so why not slip on your hard hat, shove a pencil behind your ear and do it yourself? It’s easy with Bob the Builder Construction Sets.
Bob inspects a new shipment of bricks
Perfect for creative kids and infantile adults, these ludicrously addictive playsets allow wannabe brickies and frustrated architects to build mini structures using real bricks and cement. Better still they are approved by kids’ favourite and all round good egg, Bob the Builder. Can we fix it? Yes we can!
Bob builds a zig-zag wall
The idea is to mix the special mortar and construct your wall, house, wishing well or whatever using the mini clay bricks. But here’s the good bit: when you tire of your building you can ‘demolish’ it and start again. Simply plop the whole shebang in water and the mortar dissolves. No wrecking ball required. Before you know it you’ll be working on projects that’ll put Norman Foster to shame.
Blueprints for a zig-zag wall
Available in two sizes (30 bricks or 50 bricks), each set comes with everything you need to get building, including a mini trowel, mixing bowl, wipe-clean play mat, wooden board and blueprints that show you how to build Bob a house. We’ll even throw in a Bob the Builder figurine to oversee the project/pop to the café for a three hour breakfast/upset the neighbours/disappear for two months on another job.
Different shape bricks
Speaking of unscrupulous building practices, older Bob the Builder fans will enjoy creating their very own Grand Designs whilst sitting at work. And you needn’t worry about running out of bricks and mortar because both are available separately. Just make sure you get planning permission from the boss.
50 Brick Set - Clocktower
Bob the Builder Construction Sets can be yours for as little as £9.99, and unlike most quotes that includes labour, materials, *ahem* VAT and a quick backhander for the bloke in the timber yard. So get ordering, and in the words of every good builder working in Britain today: ‘Tak możemy!’

Genuinely on of the greatest items I have purchased from Firebox.
The bf is a builder but broke his leg so was sat at home playing computer games over and over again feeling rather sad :(
I found this mini building set and he LOVED it (even aged 28) we ended up buying more for his god son and every other child that came round wanting to play.
So easy to use, clean and start again, Highly recommended. Mojo, UK - 24th June 2011

Is it edible as I'm considering buying this for my neighbours 5 year old son. Chris, Leeds - 22nd October 2010
Firebox says: No, this is not edible but it is suitable for ages 3+
My Dad had these in the 50's which I used in the 80's. I am now a frustrated architect! Excellent fun and all you need to do to start again is boil the building to melt the paste, sorry mortar. Mark, Leeds - 22nd February 2010
Santa bought me this for Christmas and I love it!!! Its easy to build and not too messy. Mummy is going to order me more bricks so I can build something hugggge. Charlie, Hertfordshire, Uk - 9th January 2010
I bought this kit for my two month old son, and by god he only went and built life size replica of the Taj Mahal. He is a genius, I did not think that there would be enough brikcs. But the little Einstien made it work. Rosstefor the Boy Genius, he is going to do great things. Proud Parent, Cuckoo Land - 26th March 2009
