An unopened tough paper bag of "Spears Brickplayer Cement, printed with the company name.

The cement was mixed with water and used to fix Brickplayer bricks together, with the finished buildings then being able to be dismantled by soaking them in warm water.

However, since the water-soluble cement apparently contained flour as a major ingredient, some users found that they had to scrub the bricks quite carefully, otherwise if they were put away wet, the residual cement could encourage mould.
