CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Squigz are fun little suckers! Apply pressure to two Squigz. Air rushes out and the fun rushes in! Connecting to each other and to any solid, non-porous surface - Squigz are a species all their own. They flex. They stick. They suck people into creativity. Once they take hold, it takes some pull to separate them. When Squigz POP! in protest - you'll have to admit. your hands and ears are shamelessly delighted! They are flexible fellows and committed joiners. Squigz and fellow Squigz have one chief enterprise - creating things. Willingly, they assemble to become rockets, vehicles, a cushion for the cat, jewelry. they thrill in uniting as a ginormous octopus or squid. Squigz are scientific sorts - always up for playful experimentation and defying gravity - sticking to bathtubs, windows, school lockers, tabletops, and office desktops. (And they are mannerly guests too - never leaving a trace of their presence.) Playful curiosity. It's a whole new gig - thanks to Squigz.

Top Customer Reviews
Essentially, each piece has a solid silicone ball and one or more flexible "stems" with a suction cup on the end. Each shape is a different color and the longest pieces (lime green) are about three inches long.
The pieces are easy to connect by pressing the suction cups together, and they pull apart with a loud, satisfying POP!
In addition to sticking to one another, the pieces also stick to tables, floors, windows, bath tubs - just about any smooth surface, and then pop off again without leaving a mark behind.
The only down side, potentially, is that they are not that great for complex construction. The suction cups tend to sometimes just come "unstuck", which can cause the child's creation to fall apart. Don't expect to build structures that can be carried around or played with for extended periods of time.
If you're shopping for a kiddo who likes to build big structures and would become frustrated by this, you might consider K'nex or some other "stay put" building toy. However, our kiddos seemed to quickly accept that Squigz aren't that kind of toy, and instead turned their attention to popping them on and off the table and enjoying them in other ways. Even just one Squig is fun as a "fidget toy"!
Another minor con - the canister that the 24-piece set comes in is thin, cheap plastic. It isn't sturdy enough to store the toys in for the long run, and ours arrived slightly smashed from shipping. I plan to order another set for gift-giving and hope it arrives in better shape!
Squigz are made in China. I wish they weren't, but they do at least seem to be of a high quality silicone and are from Fat Brain Toys, a reputable toy company.
