Product Description

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?

I think it is a great educational toy that encourages creativity.

My kids (ages 5 & 7) both love this toy although the 5 year old daughter is more enthused than my 7 year old son.

It would take a long time to try and get them together before they fall apart again.

Reptangles are a fantastic toy for the 5 and up crowd. I made a mistake and bought them for my newly 3-year-old here on Amazon based on the fact that on the fatbraintoys.com website, it was listed under "top toys for 3-year-olds." I should have checked the age rec also, but did not, so my fault. I was a bit frustrated when I received the box in the mail which said ages 6 and up, but I thought he would still enjoy the toy. However, when he opened the turtles, he is not able to even come close to snapping these turtles. Thankfully, he loves that they are turtle-shaped and just carries them around. Also, thankfully I have 4 older children that are having a blast with them and the puzzle book that comes along with them. They are a challenge to snap together though, it definitely takes some good fine motor skills. My 4-year-old daughter was struggling with it too. My 3 children 5 and up all were able to do it wonderfully though!

I just wish it would not be on the "top toys for 3-year-olds" list on Fat Brain Toys when it is obviously for older kids. Great, cool toy though, so I gave it 5 stars!!

I got this toy on a recommendation for my kids and I think I enjoy it as much as they do. These colorful turtles can be snapped together in an unlimited number of shapes and figures. Young ages will have fun just playing with the individual turtles. Older kids will begin to experiment with various patterns and shapes. They easily snap and unsnap and hold together very well. My only criticism is that if you force a nub into a slot misaligned you can damage the nub causing the turtle to have difficulty snapping together.

This toy has provided a challenge for my 8 year old, keeping her away from the electronic game systems for 4 hours! She enjoyed working her way through each level. My only dislike is that she did get cut as she was pushing hard to get some of the pieces together and pinched her skin.

The pieces are really difficult to fit together. Also, all of the edges really hurt your hands and you're trying to force the pieces together.

I'm REALLY disappointed in this toy. I bought this very early on and set it aside for a Christmas present for my 5 year old son who loves animals and building things. A sure win, or so I thought. Lesson learned: if only I opened the package upon arrival to test it out before setting it aside and wrapping it for later. My son opened them on Christmas morning and we were so excited to use them. Unfortunately, they are near impossible for an adult to snap together, never mind a child. My little boy said, "That's okay Mama, we'll just use them as turtles." So sweet of him to look at the positive side but in my head, I couldn't help thinking, "Sure, just what we need... 30+ plastic turtles around the house with no purpose other than being colorful." And since I ordered them so early on, I can't return them as it's well past the return policy timeframe. What a waste of money for us and a waste of a Christmas present. I don't even think I could give them away since I don't know what other child that we know could put them together. Ugh, well... that's that!

These things are impossible to take apart when you open the box and impossible to get them back together. Plus the cheap plastic that it's made out of kills your hands, very sharp. Plus the box stinks to high heaven.

I was amused to read other reviews. I discovered this "toy" as a teaching method for protein crystallography at a Top Ten University for a graduate student course. Ages 6 and up is true! Our 22+ year old university graduate students are learning symmetry that they could have learned as a Toddler! The Exploration Guide (or most would say, instructions) inside the toy's box is the true value of the learning experience. Education at a fraction of university cost found in a toy.

We bought these for our 4 year old for Christmas and all of my children - boys and girls (all the way up to 12 y.o) continue to come back to play with them. Because you can make geometrical shapes with them, they seem less childish than other blocks. I am sure they are played with every single day. Initially, they did not know what to do with them, but they caught on quickly and are definitely a go-to toy for all the kids. I am planning on buying another set as the biggest problem is that they are always fighting over them.

One thing I would say is that some of the tabs that connect the turtles have broken off. This could be because the boys "karate chop" them after they assemble them in a line. For the most part, they are pretty durable.
