WHAT A FANTASTIC NEW CREATION !
MY KIDS ARE NINE AND FIVE AND THEY BOTH LOVE THE LASER PEGS. THEY SAT AND PLAYED FOR OVER AN HOUR AT A TIME WITH THESE AWESOME LITE UP BLOCKS. I HOPE TO SEE MORE TO CHOOSE FROM IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
My son received this as a gift and was very excited to put it together. The idea is cool, but the quality is very poor. The first sign this wasn't going to work was when the box contained a wrong piece and we could not build the rocket according to the instructions. We received 3 wing-like pieces of the same direction, and one of the other, instead of 2 and 2. There was also a broken extra piece in the box. When it came time to put the constructed sections together, they did not fit together well, not all of the pegs could even reach the pieces they were supposed to lock into, and so my son couldn't play with it without it falling apart. Finally, the pegs don't stay lit well. You have to basically hold them in just the right spot and not let go.
Unfortunately, while the idea is cool the craftsmanship is lousy. The pegs do not stay together well...my husband had to help build and the toy kept falling apart as it was being built. Once done, my son picked it up and it crumbled. The fact that it has to be connected to the base for it to light up is kind of lousy as well. When the kids want to play around...fly the helicopter/launch the rocket.. it's not lit up. Loses its fun value right there
