Comments about Product: Fun and nice quality, though they are hard to build with since they are light. I bought some large washers at the hardware store (in bulk they were pretty inexpensive) and taped them inside.

Love Them Still
Comments about Product: We purchased these blocks for Christmas for our then three year old. When assembled all four kids made a huge castle and made animals out of their Connectagons. It was perfect for indoor play. The only downsize is tht the arched block was not as sturdy. We got rid of it everything else looks and still plays great.

beautiful, but too lightweight
Comments about Product: They are just beautiful, and pretty sturdy. But they are so lightweight they won't stay stacked. My son will crawl through and they immediately collapse. All of them. Not just one or two. The boxes themselves are durable. So it's strange. If they were just a little heavier, they might stay stacked. They are nearly as light as a cereal box. Not quite, but almost. My son played with them about 4 days and now they are just in a heap in a corner.

Waste of Money!
Comments about Product: We purchased these for our younger kids as Christmas gifts and were FLOORED at the paper-like quality of these "blocks". They are nothing like the traditional Archiquest blocks we purchased from Hearthsong, and were so flimsy they didn't even fold together. They would not have lasted a day in our family even with our gentle kids. What an astonishingly bad product.

Great blocks, with one fault!
Comments about Product: We have always loved cardboard building blocks, so when we saw this castle themed set, it was a no brainer to buy it! The blocks are well made, very sturdy, and very brightly colored.
My one complaint is that the images on some of the blocks are upside down -- the tall tower with flowers looks great from the front, but if you walk around the other side of the wall you've built using that block, the image on the other side is upside down. Not a huge deal, but something that frustrates my daughter!

First impressions impressive!
Comments about Product: These very durable and attractive blocks were used for a preaching series themed on "The Chronicles of Narnia" as well as for a family-night dinner themed on the same subject. They were used to provide a look and atmosphere, and were well received! The product is a bit pricey, but if they last over the years, they will be well worth it!
