Simple, but lots of play value

I bought this for my 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son. As expected, they enjoy building towers, but my daughter has also built roads with these blocks, and my son has loaded up his dump truck with "lumber" or "trash". Citiblocs definitely lets your child use their imagination, which is something I value in a toy. Both kids have used Twigs with the Citiblocs. Some of the blocks have some rough edges like they still needed sanding, but overall they were smooth. A booklet comes with the set that shows what you can build with the blocks, but no directions for doing so. I was scratching my head when my son asked me to build the truck. You also need to place the blocks perfectly when doing the designs, otherwise they won't be stable. Could be frustrating for a young child who is interested in replicating the designs; ours have been content doing their own things. Most of the designs portrayed in the booklet can be done with the 200 piece set; five of the more elaborate ones require 250 - 300 blocks.

Beautiful, but it may be complex

Beautiful block construction game. More difficult constructions require a lot of patience and careful planning and the lack of a manual or booklet with some examples does not help. It's surely a beautiful and fashinating game suited for ages from 5 up (my wife, loves it!) calling for a lot of spacial thinking, planning and design. Pieces are sturdy and perfectly balanced, so it's very easy to place them together. My son plays with it often and likes it.
