Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Galt First Octons (Toy)
I bought this after reading the rave reviews and both my children (2 and 4) do seem to like it very much.
I do think, however, that the pieces are rather difficult to slot together (certainly for a 2 year old) and the instructions are difficult to follow. My 4 year old daughter seems very happy slotting them together and making necklaces, flowers etc.. but at the moment has no real idea how to follow the instructions - and neither do I!! but she loves it and I think it is good for her imagination and spatial skills. She caught on very quickly. My son (2) gets excited when he sees it and calls the pieces 'trampoline'and can slot a few pieces together. He likes the different colours and would probably be interested in stacking and sorting games - except he wants to be like his sister.
The pieces are brightly coloured and sturdy - pretty durable - which is good considering they are likely to get thrown about.
I think it is something that you can continue to get pleasure out of for a few years - I think the 3-10 age guide is valid.
