I don't write many reviews, but this one needed a quick one. I really want to like this product. In theory, it's great. It works more or less as advertized. However...

NEGATIVES:

1) Of course, it all depends on your children, but the advertized "4 years old and up" may be a little young. My 4-year-old still hasn't been able to master "locking" the pieces by turning them a quarter of a turn. And quite honestly, they can be a little tricky to get out, even for an adult.

2) It's overpriced for the number of pieces you get (build a thing out of the directions and you're left with very little). I got it on a lighting deal, so it was tolerable. But there's no way I'd pay full price for it. In fact, I wouldn't pay more than $75, AT MOST. If it were made in USA, it could see how the cost would be so high... but it's plastic and made in China. Which leads me to my third complaint.

3) The pieces are cheap (probably because they are made in China). At the end of each tube is a little collar that is attached (by glue?). Without this collar, the connectors won't stay locked in. I can't tell you how many collars have come out of the tubes. I'm going to have to try and glue them back, but as they stand, it makes that end of the tube unusable. It's bad enough that if I had paid full price, I would have sent these back.

POSITIVE (I hate when reviews only tell you one side of the story or the other):

1) Certainly forces the kids to use their brain. I love toys that do this. My older daughter has made a bunch of stuff, including most recently an obstacle course for our dog.

2) A lot of the creations encourage kids to move. I do fitness coaching ([...

I bought the 57 Piece Set for my 5 yr old and 2 yr old daughters for Christmas so they would stop using my living room to build forts. Christmas morning they were very excited and we got right to building one of the structures shown in the instruction manual. At first, I was very pleased with the purchase. However, shortly after we completed the "fort" my two year old used one of the bars to pull her self up which instantly lead to two of the yellow connectors breaking. Apparently, there is a failure point on the connector where they attach to the ball joint which sheers relatively easily rendering that connector (and by default one of the bars) useless. Shortly after 2 more broke.

I did not let this setback deter me and I convinced myself these were probably a handful of pieces that were not cast 100% correctly. The next morning I called Toobeez and emailed them in hopes of getting some replacement pieces mailed. On the phone I was met with a recorded message claiming they were on the line with another customer and I should leave a message, which I did. Since then I have called between 40 and fifty times, and without fail, I am met with the same recorded message without the option to hold. Nobody has returned my call and I have received no response to my emails. Clearly, the automated message is just a shell to avoid providing any customer service what so ever.

Since Christmas, 8 connectors in total have broken, all at the same place. As if it weren't bad enough, there is no way I could even order just the connectors since I can't talk to anybody or get any response. At first I thought I would be buying anther set for their birthday to expand our building capabilities.

I just bought this for my son's 4th birthday. The kids had a blast putting it together. The age range of the children was 4-9. The younger ones needed some help getting the yellow end connector parts on the tubes. But once that was done they were able to connect the tubes to the balls and build. I had been looking for something to build forts with. I read reviews of other products and the complaint with all of them was that they weren't sturdy enough. But the Toobeez were great. At times we had 5 or 6 children playing in the structures and it did not fall apart.

It is a very versatile toy. The first thing we did was build a fort. Then it became a helicopter, a bus, a pirate ship, a house, you name it. I was initially concerned that there may not be enough pieces to build everything we wanted. We were able to build a house/fort that was big enough for 4 children or an adult and a couple of children to play in. You can't build the super-fort shown in the instruction booklet but you can do everything else. You also have to consider how much space you have. I don't think our play room is big enough for more pieces.

I highly recommend this product. It is one of the best purchases I have made.

I purchased Toobez after reading about the different teambuilding activities you can do with the product. I also watched a few YouTube videos and I was quickly impressed.

I work with college students and teambuilding is an essential component of my work. Toobez offers a lot of creative possibilities. The product is durable and simply fun to handle.

As a toy I think it would be perfect for any young kid with an imagination, I know my younger self would have loved this.

My product actually was missing a piece when it arrived. I contacted the company via email and they immediately sent several replacements. I was very happy with the response. Any company that responds that quickly deserves five stars.

I would highly recommend this to anyone.
