Experience the most advanced building system ever designed!
Building in two, three, and even four dimensions (or, at least the shadow of the fourth dimension), kids, adults, and scientists alike get a hands-on experience with the underlying structures of nature.
Each node is covered in holes of three different shapes - Squares, triangles, and pentagons - Designed to fit with three different types of rods.
Connect them together and suddenly amazing structures come burgeoning to life in so many unbelievable ways.
Read through the manual to discover the building powers of two, three, and five-fold symmetry inherent in Zome Tools and often found in nature.
Discover how to connect 2D structures to build 3D structures and then learn all about the shadows from the fourth dimension! (This might sound spooky, but it makes for brilliantly beautiful structures!)
Build a parallel hypercube shadow, a fractal cube, a squashed virus, a 5-crystal, plus all kinds of other structures. Discover how to build real-life structures within the realms of 4D hyperspace, nature, science, and structure.
Then, equipped with your newly acquired building skills, unleash your creativity and start building amazing things never before seen!
With 558 struts and 180 nodes to work with, there's no telling just how many, how big, and how amazing your creations will be.
The possibilities are as endless as the universe! (At least, that's how it feels.)
Inspired by nature and built with brilliant precision, the Zome Tool Creator Three set is the ultimate, most amazing building set your intellectual and creative mind has ever experienced.
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.

The product was purchased for a fourth grade project in school. The students had to design and build a greenhouse for a space station. I ended up ordering the large kit as well. The students enjoyed using the Zome tool.

I purchased this as a Christmas present for my son. He was introduced to this toy in QUEST lab at school. He loved playing with them so much at school that we decided to purchase them as his Christmas present. He has visited the QUEST classroom regularly after school to play with the Zome Tools. His creations are now on display in the technology classroom!!!
Top 5 toy in our family

My kids love this toy. It is intuitive and simple, but yields some pretty impressive structures. It took my boys about 2 minutes to get up and running.
My 4 year old also likes to sort the pieces in various ways in the case compartments.
Check out the Zometool website for additional instructions on how to build other project.
Keep it organized! If you don't clean up, the pieces will spread throughout the house.

Pieces will break with little kids, however, Zometool will replace them for free. Out of ~760 pieces in the kit, we have broken maybe 5 pieces. No big deal.
We love it!!!
