I remembered a similar toy from my childhood and wondered how this one would be accepted by the next generation. Well, any concerns I had about it being considered boring and thrown aside were unfounded. It was a smash hit when it arrived yesterday and everyone is looking forward to playing with these guys and seeing what configurations we can get them to stack in. We even intend to buy one or two more sets so that we can really get things going!
This one is a classic -- very well made I might add as well.
