"I bought a set of these a few years ago, for my toddlers, and they love them. We have a lot of legos, and we build some truly impressive towers, cages, super slides, and vehicles, and I have to admit that these had me stumped for a while, but then my three year old explained that they are tube slides, and for the last year and a half she has been building tube slides and shoots... now she and her little sister like to see who can build a shoot to launch the ball farthest. They have even become pretty good at guessing where the ball will land and build traps for it, so they don’t have to catch or chase the balls... I know I am their mom, but they are pretty impressive toddlers.
LEGO has been a part of their early education since the oldest was a year old, and I do credit their extensive LEGO collection with their ability to Patiently problem solve, focus, and create... we like the tubes so much that I am actually here to buy them more, and after seeing the only review on these tubes, I felt it was only fair to share our experience... these are a definite must have, if free play and steam learning are part of your lesson plan.
We have almost all of the LEGO duplo education sets, and fully intend on continuing their LEGO education as they grow.
The only negative about this set is not enough pieces because now that we have three toddlers there are not enough tubes to share, which is why we need another set..."
