Dado Cube Review
Posted 7/24/2008 by Sanjay Bulchandani
Rating: 5

It is a lovely product and I would have never found it had it not been for your site. It is well made, the colors are pretty and it provides my son with enough challenges. Also his effots to insert one block into the next has given me a window into his spatial abilities that I never had before.

The cubes are well constructed and fit together nicely. Granddaughter (age 22 mos.) needed to be shown how once. After that she did her own constructions.

My 21 month old daughter LOVES these cubes. There are 10, 2 of each color. She stacks and sorts in all different ways, using the slots or turning sideways like traditional blocks. We also play match the colors to help learn our colors. Very cool. She plays with them every single day.

Wonderful Cubes!!!!

My 1.7 year old grand-daughter can't use it as a constructor yet but likes to put the Cubes each other with many pleasure. Also she likes to look at the various structures we do for her. All adults take pleasure also!:) And I think the toy is perfect because: a) very compact and lightweight. perfectly adapted for the travel b) very colorful and to pay attention of the child c) multipurpose and for long time use d) and a child and the adults are interested with the Cubes. It allows to play together.

Great for my little one!
Posted 6/30/2009 by Rebecca
Rating: 5

I bought these because my 14- month- old girl likes "nesting" toys, and I thought these would be right up her alley. She does like the blocks, especially when they are stacked on the pyramid plastic part of their packaging. The packaging is great for keeping them organized, and it helps the blocks fall in the right direction when she nests them. She seems interested in the shapes and colors, and has managed a few times to connect the blocks with the slits. She always is eager when I pull out these blocks and even brings them to me to open for her. These seem durable, and I'm sure they'll last her a long time. For now they are getting pretty good action, and I hope when she gets a little older, she will be able to learn new tricks with them. I can see her still playing with these in a couple of years. Keep in mind these blocks are meant for older children. The littlest cube could be a choking hazard. It should probably be saved for later, or a toddler playing with these should be closely supervised.

I run a home daycare & the kids seem to enjoy playing with the Dados. The toddlers like to nest them & the older ones are creative & also copy the designs on the box. They don't hold the kids interest for as long of a period as I had hoped but are a great addition to our ever-growing load of toys.

Both my children, boy and girl, love these Dado Cubes. We have the blue and the pink sets. They build them together and separately, almost always working together. It's a great toy for getting an 8 year old and 4 year old to find a common interest with play since they are far apart in age!

Rating: 5

These are in my pre-K classroom with 3 and 4 year olds, and in the process of exploring the classroom, they have found and started using them. They're light enough for the young hands to manipulate, and sturdy enough for the two hands it takes some of them to put where they want them to go. They've discovered that they attach together in various ways, and have also used them separately as houses, for example. The colors are attractive yet not too bright. They encourage solitary play, while inviting others to partake as well, leading smoothly into conversations about alone and cooperative play.

Few Cubes
Posted 12/28/2009 by Cindy
Rating: 2

My 3 year old loves to build things. For the amount of money, I expected more cubes to be in the set. I was disappointed when I saw how big it was. You have enough cubes for only one build which doesn't hold the attention of my three year old. I think if you purchase this and have the money -buy two sets for expanded play. It's expensive for the amount of cubes you receive.

Not Impressed
Posted 1/7/2008 by Denise Dibelardino
Rating: 2

We were not impressed with Dado Cubes. Our 5 children love building systems, we have many. These were clumsy, the packing was not suitable to store them in, the lid kept popping open. The product itself was not fun to play with. We would not recommend this item.
We contacted our customer with return instructions, but the Dibelardino family has given the cubes to another family who is enjoying them.

Product review of Dado Cubes
Posted 5/12/2011 by Theresa
Rating: 5

Our 3-year-old doesn't often choose it from the toy shelf, but when we pull it out, he enjoys manipulating the squares, figuring out how they can fit together without toppling over. My husband and I appreciate that it makes him think, plan, and imagine. We notice that most toys are so "easy" to play with that the harder ones that require patience and skill are often neglected. This is one reason we love the Dado Cubes--it challenges creativity and concentration skills. Our 15-month-old enjoys the squares as well, even though she has difficulty manipulating them to stick together. She nests and arranges them in her own ways.

My four year old twins(one boy, one girl) both love this product. I bought the accessory kit too and they have really enjoyed building with all the pieces. The only way to possibly improve this toy is if they made a type of roof for the kit or hingeing doors. I would definitely buy this product again and give it as a gift!

Toy is difficult to put together. Maybe with more use it will be easier?
We assisted our customer. Dado pieces fit smoothly together when notches are aligned neatly with sides of the other cubes. The need to match Dado grooves squarely with an adjoining piece ensures that: 1. Small motor skills are developed. 2. Structures are stable and able to rise high and wide without collapse. If Dado Cubes aren't a good fit for your family, let us know. Our customer service team is securely oriented to delivering your full satisfaction.

Not a huge hit, yet
Posted 3/15/2011 by Ruth Bleidorn
Rating: 3

The cubes are sometimes hard to put together. They're just o.k. Our two year old was using them as garages and tunnels for his cars. They're better than t.v. The sharp corners scare me a bit.
We like the complex thought in aligning Dado Cubes' notches, the versatility, and the geometrics of perfect corners - however if Dado Cubes are just notch-your-thing, the building cubes may be returned or exchanged. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for details.

Rating: 5

My son is 15-months old, and he enjoys playing with it. Even though he doesn't make really creative towers yet, he enjoys nesting the cubes and stacking them however he can. They are actually easier to nest than nesting bowls or containers because they are bottomless. I can see him playing with this toy for a long time as there are lots of things for him to learn about and use it in different ways.

I love Dado Cubes. My 3 year old is so proud of the tall buildings he can make with them. My 15 month old is an expert at nesting them. I really enjoy playing with this toy as well. I am a stay at home mom, so I like to find toys that are enjoyable for us all. I feel this toy is a great investment, unlike other toys we have purchased in the past that quickly loose there appeal. I would like to have seen a better storage container for the blocks, that would be very handy.

High on my list!
Posted 11/27/2011 by Gina Marie Drakos
Rating: 5

When I evaluate a toy to determine its "play" value I take into consideration several factors: price, quality of construction, amount of space it takes to store, and the potential for open-ended, creative play. As a result Dado Cubes are very high on my list. I especially appreciate that they come in different colors. This way my children can have different sets that are compatible yet easy to distinguish which set belong to each of them.

Great educational toy!
Posted 10/26/2009 by Mary L Tan
Rating: 5

The first time Isaw this product was in a children's museum. It encourages imagination and it already has a form. So for younger children, they can actually feel that they are constructing something, as opposed to some other similar building toys which do not have a form until you "create" it which as we parents know, is a hard task to accomplish for toddlers. This is what I have observed as reactions from younger children playing with it.

Lets be honest there is only one thing to do with these, Stack and connect them. I love the colors but she's too young for it. It's a little boring for the adults. It doesn't have the same construction element of blocks with multiple shapes. We'll have to see if she grows into it or not.

I purchased Dado Cubes for my son's 1st b-day. He already has Melissa & Doug stacking blocks, so I thought these would be a great addition. This product seems fun, he isn't getting much use out of them now but I'm sure once he gets older he will. Only problem was that the cubes were smaller than expected.

My 13 month old enjoys taking the cubes out one by one and spreading them all over his playroom. I've worked with him a few times to create various shapes and buildings. The other day I watched him begin stacking them on his own -- his first constructive effort so far. I have a feeling this toy will grow with him. All in all a good buy.

Stacking fun
Posted 1/6/2011 by Leann DeBrock
Rating: 4

For starters the colors are a great draw and provide additional opportunity to practice color identification with our son who just turned three. At the same time our older children are curious when they are out and envitiably join in the stacking game with us (we bought two sets to increase the structure possibilities.) Stacking from the corners is still a little challenging for our three year old, esp with the bigger cubes, but he has better luck with the smaller ones and I like that there is room to grow; he's at a point where he is up for the challenge. Another bonus is they don't take up so much room since they are nested.... with four kids I'm always wondering how much room things will need ;o)

I picked this product for my 19 month old, knowing he would grow into it. He has 2 older brothers who teach him what to do. Since he is the 3rd boy he just doesn't want the traditional toddler stuff. This is a great product because it is safe enough for him to use with his brothers. I'm planning on adding the Dado squares to it so the older boys can get even more creative. This is a toy like Wedgits or Duplos, all the children who come over end up using these!

I was very pleased with this product. My great nephews (5yr old twins) like how they can build in three dimensions. They also learned that they had to watch how they balanced the blocks while building. Their parents also like them since they are homeschooling them for kindergarten. They also like the strength of the blocks.

Not nearly enough cubes to really build. More appropriate for younger child. My one and a half year old grandson was able to build with it. My four year old granddaughter was finished in five minutes. Didn't hold the interest of a four year old child, better suited for two year olds.

Not the creative design toy as expected. My wife is a retired geometry teacher and she was also greatly disapointed as she introduced the Dado Cubes to our grandchildren. Too few objects for the price! You need another set to express creativity.

These cubes are a lot of fun for the kids. I think the parents like playing with them more. I say any toy that gets the parents as involved and as entertained as the child is a good toy. These are very easy to stack and seem very durable.

My children were instantly attracted to the vibrant colors and the novelty of this set of building cubes. They are sturdy, flexable, and slide together fairly easily. My children made several individual designs on their own, but lost attention after about 15 minutes without any input from me. This is OK for the younger kids, but for over age 6 I would suggest a small pamphlet of design ideas to stimulate them to try more unique designs. I also would have liked more cubes. There was a suggestion that I buy two sets if I thought I would like more cubes, which is good, but some how it did not come across to me that I would not really be satisfied with only one set.

I think they are a bit young for my boys of 6 & 9, but for smaller kids they are very suitable. I found that the cubes sometimes stick together somewhat especially when they don't go in at right angles - that just means you have to take care what you do.

Rating: 5

The cubes are well built and sturdy. They are similar to nesting boxes but there are only four sides (no base). Each cube has offset slots cut in two of the four sides so that one can connect the cubes producing a number of different geometric patterns. The cubes are easy for a child to manipulate and the colors seem to be well liked.

Dado Cubes were a gift in combo with Dado Planks for a 3 1/2 year old grandson. The planks caught his eye immediately and while they can be used in conjunction, he preferred the creativity of the planks. Once he was shown how the cubes could be hooked together, especially in cantilever formation, he was much more involved.

we gave it to our grandson last night, age 2. He was very creative trying to stack them (does have stacking blocks) and then would try to knock them over. His big sister got the knack right away and starting building most interesting creations. He is watching and I expect he will get it real soon. But then having fun and being creative in your own way is just fine. neat toy has a wide age of interests.

My daughter actually enjoys these more than I thought she might. We have made all the shapes shown on the package, I am hoping soon she might venture out to try some of her own. My only complaint is that I wish the plastic were a little more rigid, when she doesn't get the slots alligned just right she gets frustrated and pushes harder, causing the sides to bow in a little. They seem to be sturdy enough to handle it- it just would be easier if they kept their shape better.

I ordered The Original Dado Cube set for my three year old grandaughter for Christmas. This was the first gift she wanted to have opened to explore. We worked together stacking them to have weird angles with cantelevered extensions. She had a little difficulty learning how to match the slits with the block placed before, but she is catching on and as she grows she will no doubt become an expert. Later on I saw her mom and aunt explore the toy, too.

We gave the cubes to our 5 year old grandson on Christmas Day. Approximately 45 minutes later he was proudly showing us his first composition (it took that long because he was initially engaged with the activities of his siblings and cousins !). After a round of praise for his handiwork, he proceeded to produce another 4-5 variations of the cubes. Clearly it was a stimulating and creative activity. The colors are wonderful too.

i bought the dado cubes for my 2 1/2 year old son. he took to the bright colors and interesting material right away (the very light but durable plastic is not quite like any of his other toys)-- but as for playing with the cubes, so far all he does is separate them and re-nest them. when i show him how to build with them, he enjoys disassembling my castles, but shows no inclination to build structures of his own. i think this is a toy that he will grow into-- and that's a very good thing!

My two year old daughter loves the product. She likes to stack them on top of each other. She also uses them as nesting cubes. I've seen her categorize them according to color and descending size. Her tiny fingers have a difficult time "building" with the cubes. However, I suspect that within the year, this will not be an issue. I'm very happy with the purchase. It turned out to be a multi-use toy. Highly recommended!

I figured I couldn't go wrong with the Dado Cubes - The Blues because my two year old daughter loves to build and stack, and loves blue. I was right! She really enjoys playing with this toy and, so far, it keeps her interest for quite some time. Because she can do so many different things with the cubes, it's almost like a new toy each time she gets them out to play with them. Sometimes she likes to sort the pieces by shade while other times she builds towers, buildings, etc. I definitely recommend this toy for young children. I also bought the Cubes because they were not made in China.

Gorgeous Pieces of Art and a Toy Too!

Rating: 5

I really love this toy. It helps build children's spatial awareness and teaches them about balance in a different way then regular stacking blocks. You can build horizontally as well as vertically. This really is a beautiful toy as well. The colors remind me of the ocean and the shape is like a modern piece of art when constructed. I am a preschool art teacher as well as general preschool teacher and have watched many children in action with this toy. Some stack them, some sort them by size or shade, and the older children figure out how to balance and construct a building that is sturdy and sound both horizontally and vertically. The children can work together or alone problem solving. It is much more complex then you would think. It is challenging and rewarding to children of all ages. You can't go wrong with this classic toy with a twist!

Rating: 5

I recommend purchasing 2 sets of these. My 2 1/2 year old really likes them. He opened the box and stacked them immediately and then said "more please". One set does not stack too high or wide, I imagine an older child (even one older than 2) could get bored with the single set. They are especially good for teaching your toddler about 'counter balancing'. He is forever getting frustrated that items will fall over when he is trying to balance or stack them. These cubes easily show him you must balance on both sides. A really good alternative to original basic stacking cubes.

I purchased these for my 2.5 year old grandson, who had recently received the 2-dimension Dado disks and built enormous modular structures, which delighted in carrying around the apartment. He enjoys combining the sets and likes to spread out his structures. Although the cubes are easier to build with, he prefers the disks. Perhaps this is because he has so many and can build larger structures. In any case, I recommend them because they are easy to use, quite colorful, sturdy, and allow for imaginative play. I forsee him using these for many years.

Dado cubes engage a child for many hours, they are colorful and eyecatching. This toy promotes hand eye coordination and also works the hand and finger muscles. It makes the child think and figure out how to nest these cubes. However the nesting shape could hurt a child if the child were to fall on it

They are a great stacking toy and will certainly be used for a long time because they can be used in many different ways depending upon the age level. The smallest cube was too small for my boys who put everything in their mouth. It would be nice to have a package that lasts that this can be stored in between uses.

The baby is too young to play with it. However, if the corners of the cubes were somewhat round; I would not hesitate to give it to him. Please, look into this idea.

It took a while for my two year old son to express an interest in this toy, but once he opened it and really took the time to understand how the blocks work he has truly enjoyed playing with them daily. He seems to have fun building them into differently shaped "towers" and regularly has to adjust his creations to account for the weight of each block. It's fun to watch him explore a more abstract toy.

I gave the Dado cubes to a 4 year old. He was distinctly unimpressed with the box. He, his older brother (6), and their Dad play with Legos all of the time. Hmmm.... Later, I learned that the 6 year old brother had been busy building with the cubes and really enjoying them. The little brother usually follows the big brother so I expect the 4 year old will be playing with them soon. Thanks!

Maybe he's just not old enough yet
Posted 1/27/2010
Rating: 3

Well, my 18 month old wasn't interested in these, but I can't hold that against the toy- to each his own, and at 18 months, he's under the target age. I was a little disappointed in these in the way they fit together - or rather, the way they don't fit together. They require that you line up the slots on both squares; the slots don't fit over the solid cube wall. I find that odd and limiting.
Dado Cubes slots do fit over the solid cube walls. Please select the "More Images" tab -found above the Dado product image- for a closer view of the building capabilities of Dado Cubes.

Review of Dado Cubes
Posted 1/8/2010 by Coleen Zellner - GRANDPARENT
Rating: 3

I wish the slots were a larger so the cubes would slip onto each other easier. Some of the cubes have to be pushed into place and pulled out of place. I'm afraid this will cause them to break. Plus it makes them less fun to play with. The Dado Cubes have not caught the interest of my grandsons. I will continue to work with them to show them different ways they can be used.
Dado Cubes are manufactured with precision. When placed at proper angles, the cubes slide together and come apart from one another smoothly. The Dado Cubes are designed so that users must think logically and use fine motor skills to interlock the pieces. It is highly unlikely that the Dado Cubes will break with usage. Please contact us through our Returns & Exchanges center if any problems of this nature should occur.

I wanted to purchase a toy that was made in America so it was safe for my one year old. I also wanted to purchase a toy that he could "grow" into. The Dado Cubes fit the bill perfectly! For now, my four year old son is using them more. But boys love to build things and I know these cubes will get years of use! Thank you, Fat Brain Toys! Count me as one satisfied momma in KC! My only suggestion is to produce huge ones so you can build "forts" with them.

We got the Dado Cubes for our 2 1/2 year old son for Christmas. I think the adults had as much fun playing with them as he did. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the cubes don't fit together real easily sometimes. But that could get better as they are used more.

I purchased these blocks for my son who is 20 months old after he broke his leg. :( Even at this age these blocks are great. He loves to nest the smaller squares inside the larger blocks, and can stack them if turned sideways. Also I can build more complex shapes, like a tower, and he can drop smaller blocks or a ball through the openings.

A really interesting and fun toy for kids. I thought our 1 year old might enjoy them, but it's better for my 3 year old due to the materials. The hard plastic corners make it a little perilous for little guys. It would also be more fun to get more than 1 set since there is only 1 block of each size. Also, keep the plastic container they come in for storage.

Excellent product. My son is only 2, but he still has a lot of fun with this toy. He stacks cubes on top of and into each other. He has not gotten the hang of building anything with it yet, but I expect that to come over time. The toy is marked "from 3 and up," after all. He has problems getting the parts apart if I build something. I am afraid he may break something the way he tries to break them apart, but so far the cubes are holding up. The material may prove to be even stronger than I think it is!

These cubes are beautiful and amusing to play around with. Whatever you make ends up looking like beautiful modern art.

I was very impressed with the durability of the product, strong plastic-not cardboard. Since both my 5 and 6 year old kids love blocks I thought they would enjoy manipulating and configuring these "cubes." I will say that yes, they enjoy playing with them. It does not seem to hold their attention for a long period. I'm not sure if that is because of their age or that they have trouble using their imagination to manipulate the cubes. I was disappointed in the cheap plastic container they came in. I was hoping I would not have to purchase another storage container for them. They stack with in each other so there is no way for them to be self contained without them being in some sort of box. I have spilled them twice taking them off the shelf. I do not regret purchasing them, I feel they are a timeless toy.

I must admit, I was more excited than my son opening these. In fairness, he's probably a bit young for them, but has so a far enjoyed stacking them and pulling apart my creations. I took the Dado Cubes and Squares to a family member's house, and they were a big hit with the older children and adults. I would recommend them to a friend.

Dado Cubes Rock!
Posted 11/13/2007 by Regina Cranford
Rating: 5

This is an amazing toy for developing and encouraging creativity with toddlers, preschoolers and beyond. The sky is the limit on what you can build with this toy, and gravity is no longer an issue. We have built castles, trees, gardens, and abstract oddities galore. I highly recommend this toy for kids who love building. But for those like my child who really aren't that into it, I found this toy engaged them more than regular blocks. My child is very into puzzles, and I think he sees this more like a puzzle than a bunch of blocks. These are made from very sturdy materials.

I opened the cubes along with my 3 year old granddaughter. She immediately found ways to stack and link the cubes. She shortly identified the dado cubes with another set of stacking cubes illustrating graduated sizes of cubes with the numbers 1 through 10, mixing and matching the different forms of the cubes. I purchased 2 sets of dado cubes, the other set for my 3 year old grandson and his mother reports that the dado cubes are very cool and he loves them.

The Dado Cubes are an interesting twist on blocks. My husband loves to build things with my son. These cubes allow for a variety of configurations to be built that keep my son's interest. I would however suggest getting more than one set to allow for a greater variety of things to be built. We thought that just one set wasn't quite enough, though one set is still fun, interesting, and a great start.

Interesting, But Difficult
Posted 8/3/2007 by M. Hutcheson
Rating: 3

Neat toy that's good for builders, but difficult to get the pieces lined up and connected right. It requires an adult to help manuever the pieces until they're locked, at least for 4 years and younger. I'm sure an older child could do it easily. Also, 10 cubes is not enough to build anything neat. You should buy at least 2 sets for it to be fun.

Fun For All Ages

Rating: 5

I purchased the Dado Cubes for my 2-year-old grandson. I gave them to him at a family gathering. He loved them and began to play with them immediately, but he was quickly joined by the adults. I was amazed at all the different ways they found to stack the cubes. I loved it when my grandson turned the cubes into a multi-level parking garage and put a car or truck into each of the stacked cubes. He also really enjoys stacking them inside each other, and because they have no bottoms, he can nest them in any order, fitting each cube into its place. A great deal of fun that entertains all of us.

Small-Scale Fun
Posted 4/16/2007 by Joanne D
Rating: 4

Ten beautifully-colored, progressively smaller (or bigger) cubes with small slits on each of their four sides that allow them to fit into each other in endless combinations and configurations. Fun and interesting for a while but the novelty wore off rather quickly for my 1.5 yr. old son (and me as well) and now he barely plays with it unless I set it out in front of him and put on a show of being throroughly engaged with it. Perhaps when he's a bit older (as the age suggested on the box - 3+ years), he'll be better able to appreciate its architectural potential. Personally I'd have liked it if there were more pieces, like if the set came with two blocks per size. The more the better? Yes. The more the merrier? Definitely.

For the participants in our program with good coordination, this activity is a great challenge...beyond just being a stacking activity. The colors enhance the activity as well. My only concern is hard wear, and the thickness of the pieces. Time will tell whether they hold up to daily use/abuse. A similar set made of wood would be fantastic in terms of durability, I think.

Dado Cubes a Smash Birthday Present
Posted 2/5/2007 by Nora Evans
Rating: 5

I purchased these cubes for my 2 year old cousin, Ryan. He seemed very interested in primarily nesting these cubes, but hopefully he will be able to use them in other ways too as he gets older. The colors are very interesting. It would be even cooler if you could buy sets that had one color get lighter and lighter as the cubes get smaller, to thereby allow children to see that both volume and tone are variable in a set. The colors, while interesting, are random. The blocks are NOT random! [FAT BRAIN TOYS: Stay tuned for some exciting announcements regarding new Dado colors in February 2007!]

I bought this product for a new spin on building blocks. The blocks are very durable as my nine year old Autistic brother is able to actively play with these blocks and not break them. This is very important since he is special needs. It is also great that the items are so versatile. While regular blocks bore him easily, this item provides hours of entertainment time and time again. He loves that he can build in several directions and use the corners of boxes instead of just building up. I only wish it had a case for easy storage and transport.

They have turned out to be a great learning tool for big and small since there is one of each color and have helped him with dexterity since it takes a bit of practice to learn the stacking tricks. He took them with him to preschool and they were a big hit there as well according to the teacher. I am plesantly surprised with the end result, and his continued desire to play with this product that on first glance seemed ultra simple and boring...But it ended up being just the opposite in our house.

Being an early childhood educator, I was pleased to see your Dado Cubes and gave them to our just 3 grandson. Amazingly he immediately began using the slots to make all types of oblique shapes, taking them apart and rearranging them. His enthusiasm and attention span were amazing. Just think: eye/hand coordination and spatial orientation all in one.

I like these blocks, but my 2 1/2 year old grandson was a little perplexed as to how they went together at first. He is very adept at puzzles and other blocks so I knew he would get the hang of it and he did. We have a great time now. He has an unusually long attention span for his age so these are appropriate for him.

I really liked manipulating the large cubes. They're colorful, and easy to use. The real test of these products are whether my students will appreciate, and enjoy them. One thing, I wish the cubes came with a detailed guide with pre-arranged designs so that my students could problem solve recreations of the structure from pictures. I predict they'll be a success.

My 3 year old daughter also likes them to connect and store small items in, like jewelry, hair clips and chalk/crayons. A bonus is that they are beautiful to look at-actual sculptural qualities when constructed!! Highly recommended.

This has been a much played with and seriously attractive toy. My toddler has managed to use one cube as a step stool and break it, so be aware! The kids use the cubes to build structures and also use the cubes individually and imaginatively for other games/play. I like that they are not prescriptive and can be played with in many ways.

I have been using this toy with developmentally delayed 2-3 year olds. It does get everyone's attention and everyone can be successful in some way building with in. Some children are able to just stack the cubes on top of each other while others can succeed with the slots. My only criticism is the storage container is not durable and is not going to last anywhere near the lifetime of the toy.

She's able to nest them, but they're very difficult to put together...you have to use the correct next-size-up, or it won't work. It would be an awesome product for an older child (9 and up) but it's NOT good for little ones.

Love these toys!

WE first saw these at our local Please Touch Museum. Our granddaughter (4 years old) was so taken by them that we practically had to drag her away to see the rest of the things to see. I will admit that I, too, had a blast making various shapes with her -- that led me to buying them for me to play with. I have some ideas for other structures but that means I'll need to buy additional sets. Haven't seen a toy this contagious in years.

My 2 year old grand daughter absolutely loves these and her parents like playing with them as well. She wants to play with these all the time.

Would not put the toy down all day. Bought this for a 2 year old and he was able to make things with them.
