Absolutely love them!
on August 8, 2011
I have both this toy and the related B. Stackadoos. There is very little overlap on size/shape/color combinations. I bought these bristle blocks as a 2nd birthday gift for my daughter. She loves to build and we have several types of blocks (mega bloks, little people blocks and wood blocks) These are by far her favorite.
They connect in a myriad of ways and directions and for little people they connect with relative ease. She is loving building "towers, monsters and cars".
Truly the possibilities are limited only by your creativity.
The faces and spinners in this set are well worth the cost. They help kids to create a story to go with their monsters. The faces also show "some" emotion. Happy, surprise etc... that have led to continued discussions of feelings. The spinners are great for fun, silliness and helicopters.
The entire set can keep her entertained long enough for me to cook or clean!
Having an open box for storage enables her to clean up and access the toys easily, which she loves.
The other educational element to consider in this set is the colors. My daughter will organize by color or size/ shape.
The only issue I have come across is that a few pieces connect poorly. For me, this is really a non-issue, but it can upset my daughter a bit when she needs help. I think that with use they will continue to fit better.
If you are on the fence.... just get them! The kids will love them and so will you!
