It's time to create the 1st Wonder of the Living Room.
The Great Pyramids-regarded as extraordinary works of art & architecture by ancient Greeks & Romans-are the only remaining of the 7 Wonders of the World. With Haba's Master Builder Block System Pyramid Set, you can uncover the mystery of how these imposing, engineering phenomenon were built! Hide the sarcophagus (coffin chest) of the ancient king & create a maze on multiple levels. Create chambers & passageways throughout the interior structure of your own great pyramid! Grace the surrounding landscape with 4 palm trees and a model of the famous Sphynx and wa-la! Symetrical beauty in block form. The dimensions of the completed structure are 8.5" x 8.5" x 6.5". Ages 3+.
This product was given as a present tonight and was shipped with only 108 parts instead of the 110 advertised. It was missing two small stairs. They shipped 14 of 16 needed to complete the set.
I purchased the Pyramid set and it will be given as a gift next week. I hope that it has all of the pieces.
This should be a great toy!
Three adults put this together. I will be using it this summer for my summer reading program at our library. We will be drawing and building wonders of the world. The pyramid was a little difficult, but we numbered the peices. This helped. We had a great time putting it together. The older kids will love it!
A fabulous alternative to video games. A product that encourages analytical problem-solving skills. It was fun. I liked the fact that it contains passages and a tomb. It reinforces the idea that pyramids were not solid inside, therefore encouraging one to marvel at the stability of early Egyptian architecture.
I like the fact that the toy was just not "here's some blocks, not stack to make a pyramid." It's quite a challenging puzzle. The box says it's for ages 3 and up. I do wonder how a 3 year old would complete the pyramid without an adult's help. Before trying the pyramid set out on school children, I tried it out with 2 adults. They couldn't finish it without the instructions.
It would be nice for the toy to contain a piece of paper detailing the history and the significance of the pyramids.
