Ash - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
These blocks are awesome! While I realize that they are just fancy cardboard they are perfect. The colors are bright and vibrant and they are light and pretty easy to stack if assembled correctly. I do wish there were more of the larger blocks but overall it's been fun so that doesn't matter. If you have a child that loves to build or knock down things these are perfect! I almost want a second set to make bigger builds.

Not exactly what I expected

3 out of 5 stars
izzyfl - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
These blocks are not exactly what I expected. Easy to put together but since they are cardboard boxes they are not exactly flat when wanting to build with them. Positive: they are light weight so when they fall they don’t hurt anyone.

ksneed - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
My 3.5 year old loves these blocks! He will build for hours which is saying alot bc his attention span is short. I didn't find they were complicated to put together. Probably took 30-45 minutes to put all of them together.

Best Blocks for Imagination

I bought these for my daughter four years ago and the her imagination soars when she plays with these. She has built forts, cities, singing stage, airports, castles, barns, bridges, etc. At 7 years old she is still playing with them and asking that I buy her more! Yes, after 4 years, they are still holding up!

15 Years Later...

We bought these blocks for our three children when they were about 5-7 years old. 15 years later, our fourth child (7 years old) is still playing with the blocks! He loves to build bridges, forts, walls, towers, and whatever else he can imagine...and he's asking for a second set. The only down side is storage for the blocks but we bought a large plastic bin and it works well enough. There is NO reason NOT to give your child these blocks and unlock their imagination!

Whew! Putting each block together is a chore, but our 3 and 1.5 year olds have enjoyed building and knocking them down. The blocks are a little more substantial than what you would think, which is nice!

Linzdd - 3 years ago, Verified purchaser
A little complicated to assemble initially but one you get the hang of it not too bad. Blocks are sturdy but not always straight/level as you would expect with folding cardboard. It would be nice to get another set to build taller forts, specifically for the bigger red ones.

Best toy ever!

I bought these blocks seven years ago for my first grandchild. We now have 4 grandkids and these blocks give all of them hours of imaginative play. During the pandemic we have traveled far and wide in the cars, spaceships, boats and planes we have built! Not to mention the castles, forts and veterinary clinics! The kids can walk on them, build chairs out of them and they hold up every time! We bought two sets - best investment we made for grandma's playroom! (We babysit 2-3 days per week). We even wrapped the blocks up and stacked them for our Christmas tree one year!
