These are so much better than any traditional plastic straw, these straws can be built to serve any purpose you can imagine! Share drinks, mix drinks, watch drinks swirl in multiple different directions before making it to you mouth. The 44 dishwasher safe straw pieces and flexible rubber connectors in this kit help you complete crazy straw construction. You could even use multiple kits to build the world's longest straw!
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.
Identified Special Needs Challenges: Apraxia,
Speech & Language Delay
"Encouraged fine motor skills in putting the pieces together, but ultimately needed help in this regard. For kids with apraxia and difficulties with coordinating use of a straw, this is a unique twist that could make trying more fun again."
My son got these for his 8th birthday. There are lots of choices and pieces to use. There are also instructions in the package that help him build, and it is almost necessary as the package does not come with stopper pieces. Great for cause and effect though, and a very open ended toy that involves critical thinking. I have not washed the pieces yet, but will likely do it by hand when he is through playing with all the pieces.
This was a fun little supplemental gift for my son's 10th birthday. He had so much fun making a silly straw. My other three kids had a hard time letting him experiment on his own--they all want their own set.
My 7 year old daughter opened the package and instantly began constructing the craziest twisty straw. She has fun building the straw but then does not want it pulled apart.
I agree with on reviewer who mentioned that it would be better with even more parts to work with...(more to clean, but more fun as well).
