Cool Building Bricks
I bought these blocks for my family child care. The kids absolutely love them. I love the bright colors they come in. I bought 2 sets, and they build castles big enough to fit 4-5 kids inside. (around them, but not real high). I taped all the seams as a I put them together, and they seem very sturdy. I would recommend them for anyone

Wonderful for creativity
I got these blocks two days ago. Within minutes my kids had pulled them out, read the directions, and begun assembling them. Total assembly was 15 minutes with three kids working on them. The instructions are clear and easy to understand (most of the blocks don't need instructions at all). They've already figured out how to make canons, keeps, moats, and stable walls out of them. My son has built a castle/throne for his stuffed animals. I may have to get another set to keep up with the plan they have for building things!

These were very neat. Exactly what I wanted. It took me a while to figure out how to put them together but once I did it took me about an hour to put all of them together. The triangle and hexigon shapes might need to be taped but the squares, triangles etc stay togethre well.

Good Product--just needs tape reinforcement
The bricks were well loved by the preschoolers at our church. I like the colors and variety of shapes. Assembly takes a little work, and using clear duct tape at the seem helps a lot.

My two year old sons love to play with these! They took a little while to put together and some of the flaps are popping up but I can easily use clear tape to seal them. We have had a great two weeks of building towers and knocking them down. The price seemed more reasonable than other sites.

Fun shapes/ not very sturdy
It took me quite a while to assemble all the blocks. Because they are lighter in weight than the cardboard blocks I already have, I taped all of the seams with clear book tape. I am using them in a special needs preschool setting and I doubt they will last very long. The kids love all the new shapes and are building much more creative structures with these. For the price, the increase in creativity is worth it. I would love to see the same blocks in strudier cardboard!

I've seen these exact bricks on other company websites for much more. This is great for the price. The box it came in was torn, but none of the pieces were ruined. Very easy to assemble and comes with instructions. Sturdy and should hold up well as long as kids don't try to step on them.

Great purchase and fun for imaginative play. A little tricky to assemble the first of each color, but after that, no problem. Didn't think the directions helped much, but did figure it out.

This was a good buy. They arrived opened and wet because of the rain but the rep was really nice and sent me a new set. Easy to put together and the kids are still playing with it! They are really sturdy and so much fun. They build castles and forts and go thru so much wear and tear! Good buy!

Definetly worth the price and a durable product. I own and operate a private preschool from my home and I just replaced my original set of bricks that I had bought about 7 years ago. Many kids later and lots of building and imaginations these were tuff and sturdy. I ordered 2 more sets so the creativity can fly!!! Product assembly : have patience and know that you will be putting each one together...True after first shape is figured out for each color the rest are easier to assemble. Discourage children from stepping on them...while constructed good, they can crush, or cave in if jumping or rough housing occurs on them.
