Developed by a dad who didn't want to shell out lots of money for playsets that would be used once and then forever tossed aside, BrikBilt is a cheap LEGO alternative that provides the look of the toys for less, without sacrificing the interlocking features of the toys.

The crafty sets are essentially flat-packed environments that have been slotted to work with LEGO building blocks, so that kids can begin to build atop of the structures to create even more impressive creations. Items in the simple playset include fire stations, police stations and storefronts, which pleasing prints on them. Rather than being made from plastic, these toys use a recyclable material that BrikBilt calls "BrikBoard." Typically, this eco-friendly material is used for retail displays because it is ideal for processes like printing, manufacturing, shipping and delivering. Plus, by doing away with plastic, it's a lot better for the environment too.
