If you're looking for a complicated, frustrating way to build a fort or some sort of place for you kids, this is your product. In theory, it sounds great--really. In the pictures, it looks so easy! Just line up the corresponding Velcro tabs and viola! a fort.

It's possible I'm a dunce but we've tried using this many times and it's not only time consuming to hook everything together (Velcro is awesome until you have a million little tabs to unhook, untangle, and that get hooked all over *all* the tabs, not just the ones you *want* to connect) but so often it's like a magic trick to figure out which way to place the panels to be sure you're going to have them the right way for the tabs to line up. So while you're trying to be sure you have the panel facing the correct way, all those Velcro tabs keep catching meaning you then have to *unhook* all those tabs, try to line them up, they get caught, rinse and repeat.

Often, when we get to a corner, there's a gap (unlike what I'm seeing in the picture) because there aren't always tabs *at* the corners, or the corner tabs don't line up correctly.

Again, in theory, it's a great idea. But implementing it for me just leaves me irritated and that's too bad because I'd so looked forward to this when we'd initially ordered it.

On a side note, their customer service is okay. Our first set came at Christmas time and I was quite perplexed when I took it out of the box because all the panels had only the soft Velcro side, not the side with hooks. Thinking I was unbelievably dumb or something (after watching the Youtube videos and seeing how it went together) I contacted them, asking if I were some kind of moron. Turns out they'd had manufacturing problem and sent out a shipment with a design flaw.

I bought this for my 5 year old grandson. His father fashioned it on top of swing, slide, fort set to make the fort even bigger. He loves it and Dad also plans to use it when he makes a tree fort for his sons.

My 6 year old has a blast building forts in his room with fortamajig. Love that it comes in a bag so we can take it on vacations and turn hotel rooms into fun places, too. took it to a family reunion and all the kids made a fort in the backyard while the grownups caught it. Great fun. Easy to put together with the velcro strips.

The tent is cheaply made and difficult to put together for the younger child. Would not purchase for other 8 grand kids.

I purchased these last year for my 6 year old son and his younger siblings. I love the idea of open-ended play and creating their own secret spaces. But these are very difficult to work with. He can't do it himself. It's even tough for his parents! For one thing, you need to have lots of furniture with wooden parts for the velcro to hook around---it doesn't work on knobs of drawers or upholstered chair arms. It's limiting. The velcro is kind of "everywhere" and it's complicated to connect them, creating great frustration for everyone every single time we get them out.

The picture shows the thimajig staying up over the girls bed. Without other sticks to keep it up this is impossible and this is what she wants so a little difficult to make it work.

My children are children are 7, 3, and 1 year old. The two older ones have had nothing but good times building imaginary fortresses all over our home. The little one has no choice but to explore and enjoy the latest structure. They love this toy and spend hours redesigning. I recommend this product to anyone that has children that love to create and have fun. We no longer have to look for the quilts and sheets all over our home. This toy also needs a minimal storage space. Take that Legos and Imaginext!!!! We love Connectables and your children will too.
