Despite the excellent reviews I read
on 29 December 2015
I had been really looking forward to giving my children this present as they played with a similar product at a neighbour's house (different brand, American). I ordered 6 boxes as live in New Zealand so wanted to kick start their collection straightaway. Despite the excellent reviews I read, I am quite disappointed, and the kids have barely touched it. The rods are very heavy, so the structures collapse in on themselves very easily as soon as the shape gets too big, and I, as a competent adult, have yet to build the larger shapes that decorate most of the boxes. I wish I had bought the other brand with the shorter rods that I know they work. The concept of the product is great, and I so wanted this to be the new favourite toy in our household, but it just doesn't work that well.
