Move over building blocks. For the younger set these are no-fail building toys. For older kids they are a challenge to the creative design minds.
These make great imaginative play and dexterity practice. The smallest set [15 pieces] is under $20, but if you can I would go with the 30 piece set [around $27]. The stack compactly when not in use and when in use can make all kids of towers and designs, limited only by imagination.
The manufacturer says ages 3-8, but I've used it [without the smallest piece] from 2 to teens. GREAT for independent play or playing with a friend. My favorite part was that they were small to transport, fast to pick up and pack up, but gave kids something to "build bigger."
My kiddos built up to having 60 pieces and created whole futuristic city-scapes for their toy cars and midget people.
AND.... when no one is looking the teens and adults in the house will likely be playing with these as well!
