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 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).
Information about Strawz

My husband will be using the produce for his Model Railroad display in the basement. He is using the strawz for a project with a refinery. He will use the strawz and pieces for piping on the refinery. Looks good so far - then he has to paint it also. A work in process.

My son has two sets of these and spends hours building new configurations. We have found if you stick to water for the drink, it is much easier to clean and store vs. a sticky option.
He loved it so much he just got one for his friend for his birthday
