We have two of these and I love them.

A few notes on the other reviews that I've read:
You can make triangles for rigidity. Quite easily actually.
Yes, it's tight to get the the rods into the connectors but you need that for the connections to stay.
No, kids under the age of 9 or so will likely get frustrated by these. However, I've had a lot of fun with my nearly 7 year old at explaining the geometry of structures we've built. As the son of a contractor and a former framing carpenter, I love talking about structural stability with her (even if I have to simplify it down some ;) ).

Ultimately, this toy is cool, even if it takes a little work. Treat it like and educational opportunity and not just something to shut them up and you'll be quite happy. Moreover, have some fun with it and be a kid with it and you'll be geeking out pretty hard soon enough on your own!

Nov 29, 2014 UPDATE:
Almost two years later and we still break these out. I make a pyramid for my younger one, now 5 1/2, for he and his buddy to play in just the other day. They helped out on the construction and on where to put things. Still fun!

I carefully reviewed two other similar fort products, and then found this one on sale for 50% off MSRP at a local department store for Christmas (at the time their were no reviews of this brand on Amazon). We bought my son two kits so he could build big forts (this was due to concerns raised in the reviews for the other products - and the fact that we paid half price). So far all of the forts we have built we could have built with one kit. You can build a lot with one kit.

My son is almost 5, and a parent does have to help him construct each fort. Especially the first time. It does require some pressure to stick the pieces together. Some of the ball connectors have holes that are a little tight. But I imagine they will loosen up over time.

We have built 3 structures in 4 days. The rocket ship fort photo that I uploaded is ours. Our forts have easily held the weight of 3 sheets. (This was also a concern listed in another products review.) My son has a sensory processing disorder, and as a result he often plays roughly with things. He hasn't broken any part of this yet. And if when he is crawling in and out of his forts a piece pops apart, it is easy enough to pop back together. We are very very happy with our purchase.

The components are sturdy. We use a Queen Sized 600 thread count sheet PLUS a fleece throw over the structures we create and it holds up.
My 9 year old daughter has to put muscle behind the rods to get them in, which is a nice change from watching tv, and sitting idle.
She and a friend have to use patience, imagination, coordination, and trouble shooting skills to get the structures to work, and the payoff is a great place to play!
When my kids ask me to build something, it takes less than 15 minutes to get a simple hut built.
My toddler fits inside the structures with the two girls, and there's plenty of room to sit facing each other eating snacks.
To clarify the description, this set actually comes with 77 pieces.
This is the best thing we purchased this Christmas!

My son is too young to have the spacial reasoning required to make a fort out of this. However, he and I have had hours of fun with this when I have done the building and he is around to "help" (pass me the pieces). There is not a problem with the lengths or the sizes; there is a level of knowledge required for positioning the connectors and angling the rods. We have had two sheets on ours, both very heavy, without problem. The key to getting the rods to stay is to twist, not just push. Yes, it falls apart, but it stays up for a day at a time. My little boy actually slept in the igloo we made the first night.

The toy is a little expensive for what you get, but it is really fun. I am considering buying a second one so that we can build even bigger!!

As a lot of the other reviews stated, the assembly is not easy. But given the choice between having a somewhat difficult time putting the sticks in the holes versus the fort falling apart, I side with the difficult time. Having an adult help to assemble it will probably be necessary.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By D. Packard on June 29, 2013
My sons (5 and 7) love playing in the forts we build with this set. They like building forts but, until we bought this, they used furniture. This has been a great solution - encourages creativity and cooperative play without tearing the living room apart. Also, because the parts are made of durable plastic, the set can be used to build forts outside. The structures are sturdy and I use clothes pins to keep fleece throws and sheets attached. My 7 year old still has trouble inserting the tubes but I think he'll soon have the strength to give them the twist and push they need. The structures wouldn't be as sturdy if it didn't take some effort to insert the tubes. For one set, it takes about 15 minutes to help them build a fort. I want to get at least one other set so we can build more elaborate structures and tunnels.

Found these in a store so we purchased them for our kid and he loved them from the get go. I ended up buying more here on amazon because one box just isn't enough for his crazy imagination. We have so much fun as a family using these to create forts of all different sizes and shapes
