I like these because they are bath toys that don't fill up with water and get moldy. They are not very entertaining though. You can kind of connect them, but the slightest movement causes them to come apart. My 2 year old is too impatient for that anyway. She doesn't really play with these much, but she does put them in a bucket and dump them out. We count them when it is time to get out and put them in the bucket to clean up. They are nicely made and pretty colors. I wouldn't say there is anything wrong with them.
