I ordered Connectagons to take on our vacation with our 4 grandchildren, ages 3-9. It was a fun activity for evenings/rainy days. They could "play" together but each could build his own creation as ablility permitted. Also parents & grand parents could join in and sometimes just one rather large "connectagon" happened.The wooden storage boxes are fine except it is tedius cleanup for young children to have to put them away in rows/stacks so lid will slide on--am going to find bin with lid to hold them all.Thank you for a great product!Parent--also now aGrandparent; and an Educator

Its Ok - not easy to balance, awkward
We all quickly lost enthusiasm. Looks like fun, but difficult to balance. Grandparent, father, and children 7 to 3 spent time playing, but didn't find it stimulating.

A memory from the past

About Me Grandparent
Comments about HearthSong Connectagons®:
This is a memory from the past. My grandmother had these in her toy box at her house. My cousins and I spent endless hours playing with these. As soon as I saw them in your catalog I had to order them for our toy box for our granddaughters. Can't wait until they are over and have a chance to play with them. Also can't wait to show them to my cousins. We will surely have plenty of memories stirred up.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fun but pieces break easily
By Mass Mom

About Me Education Oriented, Parent Of Two Or More Children, Working Parent
My 5 year old daughter really enjoys playing with the aquarium set. However, we were rather disappointed to find that the base pieces break easily. Within several weeks of purchasing this set, 3 of the base pieces have broken - all at the ends. My daughter is very gentle with toys. We have been able to glue the pieces back together with wood glue. But, we expected a higher quality product than this!

Connectagons are great! My boys, 3 and 6, are both enjoying playing with them; and I'm having fun watching them and playing with them as well. I would definitely recommend the drawstring storage bag. Makes clean up much easier.
Wonderful Building Set
from Chicago, IL
I bought this for my young nephew and the entire family ended up building together. The pieces are easy to work with and it helps with creativity. A well-made fun product. Would be even better if a small canvas storage bag was included for storing and transporting pieces.

Let your imagination run wild
from Columbus, Ohio
My entire family, children ages 5-9 and parents included, have really enjoyed having this product in our home. It allows children and adults to let their imaginations run wild with all the creatures, products etc that you can create using the bright colorful and fun pieces. I gladly would recommend it to others.

Fun for all ages!
By Aunt Gail
from South Lyon, Michigan
I brought out the Connectagons prior to Thanksgiving dinner. My nephews age 7 and 10 and my niece age 13 all began to make shapes like snowflakes, swords and pinwheels. The seven years old played with them often. A big hit, some of the adults even put some shapes together.

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children
On my sons 5th birthday, he received many gifts from family and friends. He initially gravitated to all the fancy toys. This is the only gift that he still plays with. This toy comes out of the closet 2-3 times a week.For creative play, this toy is on par with Zometool.

Product was fun and entertaining for my three children (ages 4, 10, and 12). I even got in on the fun and made some designs with them. Like any toy, they did get bored after a while. But they do pick it up from time to time and still have fun with it. The bag makes it a good toy for transporting and taking on vacations, but it should be included in the price (had to pay extra for it).

About Me Parent Of Two Or More Children, Stay At Home Parent
I love this toy! There are a million different things you can do with them. My kids use them as 'food' for their stuffed animals, money, tickets, etc.I have used them to help teach math and how to identify sets.My 18 mo old loves them as much as my 6.5yr old!
Maybe they will like it better next year

About Me Parent Of Multiples (Twins etc), Parent Of Two Or More Children, Stay At Home Parent, Working Parent
Well made and sturdy. However, because of the slat angles, it isn't easy to build anything that is recognizable to the kids (ages 3 and 4).
By Grandma Lynn
from Tinton Falls, NJ
This was a gift for my 5 year old grandson. He and his 10 year old sister had a great time building whatever their imagination led them to. Very durable, colorful and fun.
By Creative Mom
from Upstate NY
This is a lot of fun. We got it because my son loves playing with it in Kindergarten and wanted to bring it home.My only qualm is that the box it comes in is not the best for storage. The pieces easily fall out of the side of the box.Other than that, great creative toy!
Not very durable but fun to create
By User 123
from Washington, DC
It's fun to put the pieces together to create new things -- flowers mostly, but also unique designs. We have broken several of the pieces, though. The ends will break off easily since they are thin wood.
I would recommend to other grandparents
from Columbia, MO
Gave to our Grandchildren 5 and 3 for Christmas. They both enjoyed creating their own designs and seeing what they could make. The bag was a great addition, after they play they have a bag to keep pieces in. Even our daughter was pleased with the structure, durability, design of pieces and mostly making the children think and use their imagination.
