“My nephew is a Lego maniac, but when he opened my present, he was not interested in the Legos! He fully focused his attention on the Reptangles and didn't even play with the new Legos until the next day.”

These building turtles are a SNAP! 2 Reptangles can connect in 100+ combinations!

A highly evolved construction toy, Reptangles are a perfect fit for building intelligent imaginations! Because of their reptilian resemblance, children are immediately drawn to this building toy system. The snapping begins and soon leads to new levels of imagination, creativity and educational play!

Reptangles is a toy of innovative design. The geometry of the polyhedra shape is an essential component to the appeal and countless ways Reptangles can be combined. Children quickly advance their skills, first building simple polyhedra and then advancing to complex polyhedra. Truncated octahedrons never looked so good! Once they start creating, children forget these are turtles with purpose!

Dive into symmetry, reflections and rotations with the accompanying, full-color Exploration Guide. You'll find incredibly interesting geometry. The guide also features step-by-step diagrams to create complex and beautiful structures; it sparks the curiosity of even the most seasoned building toy veteran! Have you ever built a rhombicuboctahedron?

Well-built, with a focus on modern design, Reptangles is an inter-locking toy system that is superior to all predecessors. These colorful creatures engage for hours!

    Important Note:

    Reptangles are often purchased for younger children, (as seen in the graphs below).
    Young children may need a few years of growing before they have the fine motor skills needed to snap the turtles together effectively.

    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.
