    "Good therapy for affected hands and brains in stroke victims."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "This Erector Set provides my son an opportunity to exercise concentration and focus, for extended periods on a detailed set of instructions and tasks. This led to interim reward plateaus, the ultimate reward of project completion, and a self-manufactured toy."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    ADD/ADHD, Autism
    "Our little guy also has a seizure disorder. He loves playing with an Erector set - this is his second set. He mostly creates his own designs, but then doesn't want to disassemble them. We'll probably be purchasing a third set before much longer. This little boy was totally shut down when he joined our family at age 27 months. He tested in the 14-month old range. He is in a regular third grade classroom now with minimal assistance. Erector sets are so good for developing dexterity, creative imagination. Also, they are so sturdy - they are hard to break."

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    "Like all -Aspie Kids, once my daughter gets hooked on something, that is it. She was doing Legos, and became frustrated with their problems with movement. They fall apart, but moving isn't what Legos were designed for. So, we have evolved to Erector. I went ahead and bought two sets, one that has a case, the other has a driver. I wanted the driver because I knew the nuts and bolts were small. My daughter has the typical fine motor skills of an aspie - that is to say, none."

    Erector Set Special Edition
    Posted 1/4/2014

    I purchased the erector set for my 11 year old grandson. I was disappointed with the set. The instructions were difficult to read and my grandson wouldn't even attempt them. I don't think this will be a toy he goes to when he wants something to do. My grandson loves Legos and builds them all the time, so thought this would be a nice change for him but it didn't turn out that way.

    Still as captivating as when I was a child!
    Posted 11/14/2013

    This creative construction toy can make easy or complex projects used for play and learning. Helps children learn basic engineering skills and design simple machines or complex creations. I played with an Erector Set for hours on end as a child and now I enjoy watching and helping my child do the same.
