    newspaper builders
    Posted 12/25/2013 by Gili Freeman

    Newspaper tube assembly requires some tedious work . They would rather not build anything rather than have to put together so many tubes. It's also one of those things that you open after spending so much money and say, "Oh that's it? I could make that." Although it allows for great creativity, (if you get through the tube assembly), it's too much effort for the end result. I wish I had similar builders that had the tubes already assembled so my kids could get right into playing.

    Bought this for grandson age 4-1/2 who is pretty technically and spatially inclined (for example makes 3 foot high Lego skyscrapers in imaginative designs and does 1000 pc puzzles with glee). The toy requires adult assistance both in the setup (making the tubes) as well as in actual construction because inserting the hexagonal joint pieces into the plastic tube ends is difficult to do without crushing the paper tube. This takes away the child's sense of control over the use of the toy. Will be returning this toy.
