Geometric Connecting Shapes
doesn't have a box
i plan on giving this to my niece, i wanted to find a toy that would snap together so her sister couldn't knock it over. amazons price kept changing and it was far more expensive than it was here, especially have a free shipping coupon i found.
however - there is no box. its just a bag of lose parts. not even a picture showing how to use it. so besides the pieces being rather small (about the size of an oreo cookie, and the thickness of dime maybe? there is no box. i had to look around for a box she can carry these in. there are 400 pieces, it needs a container. the bag isn't even a ziplock. it needs a box of some kind. you'll need a shoe box size container if you get this product.

LOVE this building set!!!!!!
I am thrilled with this set and have heartily recommended it to several Moms and Grandmas. The colors are bright and the pieces are sturdy. They are also fun to sort by color and by shape. We all had a blast creating interesting designs that held together very well.
I love that there are enough pieces that several kids (and their parents!) can all build at the same time.
I'm planning on purchasing more sets as gifts.

Perfect for our "shapes" party
Good buy! 400 pieces that are sturdy and interlock well with each other. Bought these to put in the party favor bags and am not disappointed at all.

Great building set!
This is a Christmas present, and the first product I've ordered from OT. I am so pleased with it! I've spent an hour just playing around with it. The pieces connect together nicely, not too tight or too loose. It builds big despite being able to be stored in a smaller area. It comes with enough for a group to build with.
I would say this would be appropriate for, say, 4-10+ year olds. I purchased it for a 6 and 8 year old, they have traditional knex, legos, and mini unit blocks that they play with daily- I expect these to also be a popular toy. The simplicity is great, and honestly I can't imagine how someone could not be amused with them.

This was exactly what I was looking for and the price was better than I expected. The quality is great, lots of colors and shapes that easily snap together. I bought them for young Girl Scouts but found myself playing with them too!

This is one of the best quality activity toys I have found on OT -- the colors are bright, the plastic discs are strong and hold firm, the kids (age 6 and 4) can carry their creations around, gently toss, roll and in so many ways have a blast! And there are so many pieces the neighbor kids can join in and nobody feels left out as they create! Do not hesitate to try this product!
