My children, two and four, were immediately taken with it. We haven't yet played it as a 'game' but that's really just a bonus interpretation of its uses anyway. It's fun to just stack it in really precarious ways (ie. those other than what's pictured) and see how long you can keep it from toppling while building it up as tall or wide as possible. If you were to build the cactus, as is pictured, it is very attractive and proves to be quite stable. This is nice for shelving the toy when I'm too busy to supervise my youngest with it. The real challenges are not in building what is expected, but are self-imposed; pushing the limits of what can be balanced atop this generally stable base.
This toy/game consists of a total of 19 pieces that fit together with a peg-and hole system. Each progressively smaller piece has less holes, and the coral-orange pieces have no holes, and so cannot be built upon. Another reviewer mentioned that the pegs fit loosely in the holes and this is true. A piece will often swivel downward from the weight of a successive piece. This doesn't bother me, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Here are the pieces that come with this set, and their measurements (information that seems difficult to come by per my observation before ordering):
- 1 Unfinished Wooden Base (5 holes): 3.5" tall x 2.5" (widest point at top) 1.5" (at bottom)
- 3 Large Dark Green Pieces (3 holes): about 3.25" tall x 1.75" wide
- 3 Medium Green Pieces (2 holes): 2.75" x 1.5"
- 3 Medium (Slightly Lighter) Green Pieces (2 holes): 2.75" x 1.Read more ›
Not only that, the design is beautiful and the craftsmanship is top notch. We really love this toy. I'll be buying more from this company.

I bought this for a toddler just turning 2 with no intention of using it as a game. He figured out how to put the pieces on right away, and really enjoyed making it topple. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Deanna Bush
The pieces don't lock into place as I expected, but my almost-two-year-old has a ball with this game. It looks pretty great, too.Published 2 months ago by Loni
This is a cute idea but my 3 and 4 year olds couldn't balance this at all. Probably better for older kids.Published 4 months ago by CrustyHopduster
Really nice toy-- such nice quality. My son (6) is a little too old for it but it is rather nice as a sculpture, and we still do play with it a bit. Read morePublished 4 months ago by RayRay
The whole chemical free and environmentally friendly part is awesome, however, this toy has very heavy pieces. The same idea could be accomplished using better (safer) materials.Published 4 months ago by Dave
