“My nephew is a Lego maniac, but when he opened my present, he was not interested in the Legos! He fully focused his attention on the Reptangles and didn't even play with the new Legos until the next day.”

These building turtles are a SNAP! 2 Reptangles can connect in 100+ combinations!

A highly evolved construction toy, Reptangles are a perfect fit for building intelligent imaginations! Because of their reptilian resemblance, children are immediately drawn to this building toy system. The snapping begins and soon leads to new levels of imagination, creativity and educational play!

Reptangles is a toy of innovative design. The geometry of the polyhedra shape is an essential component to the appeal and countless ways Reptangles can be combined. Children quickly advance their skills, first building simple polyhedra and then advancing to complex polyhedra. Truncated octahedrons never looked so good! Once they start creating, children forget these are turtles with purpose!

Dive into symmetry, reflections and rotations with the accompanying, full-color Exploration Guide. You'll find incredibly interesting geometry. The guide also features step-by-step diagrams to create complex and beautiful structures; it sparks the curiosity of even the most seasoned building toy veteran! Have you ever built a rhombicuboctahedron?

Well-built, with a focus on modern design, Reptangles is an inter-locking toy system that is superior to all predecessors. These colorful creatures engage for hours!

    My rating of Reptangles
    Posted 7/22/2014 by Happy mother

    I ordered it as a birthday gift for my 6 year old son. It was a blast!!! Very different than toys he sees at the store or got from friends. At first he was not sure what it is and what to do with it, but now it hard to pull him away from it! He came out with interesting designs and incorporated the "turtles" in his toy world! Great!!! Thank you!
