Great pipes, not so great base
Jumbo Pipe Connectors are a wonderful, age appropriate toy for preschoolers. They are colorful and made of a soft plastic, comfortable for little fingers. The intent is to build a pipe structure using the base to support the structure. It all works great until the hard plastic base nodes crack and break making the base unusable. Unfortunately, it is not possible to replace the base. The price is quite acceptable until you have a broken base, then the toy just sits, a waste of the purchase price. I would recommend this toy except for the problem with the base.

Pipes did not fit together well, and over half cracked when we attempted to fit them together! I bought this based on previous experience with the same product. Not sure what happened in the intervening years, but this was not the same quality as the previous product. My 20 year old got frustrated with how it fell apart as he tried to test the product, not going to work for four year olds!
I don't perhaps a different factory is now being used.

I bought this for my 4 year old pre-k class. They love it! It provides opportunities for planning, creating, and is a great tool to use to promote cooperative play. I will be buying more.

I purchased this for my kids ages 5,6,and,7. They play with it every day especially the two boys. Although it's can be difficult for younger kids to attach the pipes to the board it comes with, the older kids have no problem. They love to play with them without the board and they really get very creative!! This is a great toy, very worth the money!

Excellent teaching aid
I bought this for use in homeschooling my 3 young grandchildren. It is an excellent tool for matching, counting, patterning, and development of hand-eye coordination, as well as motor skills. As a bonus, the kids LOVE it! They have no idea they are learning as they play. A must-have for any play-to-learn environment.

This has been so much fun at home and in the classroom! I orignally purchased it because the preschool kiddos kept pulling apart our kindergarten whisper phones to build with them. When I saw this- I thought it would be great for them to use instead! It is well built and encourages discussion amongst peers as it comes with one base- so the kids work together to create their masterpiece! Great Item!

Great for Prevocational
This is an awesome set. I couldn't find these cheaper anywhere else. I was able to make several prevocational sets. There is 7 different colors. I have enough sets for 8 students. These are great for patterns, sorting, choice of direction and play reward.
