One of our all time favorite toys with tons of re-play value
We purchased these for my daughter when she was about 1.5. Despite the fact that she was younger than the intended age, she loved them SO MUCH. At that time, she just loved clicking them together (as they make an addictive little snapping sound) and stacking them. Now that she is 3 1/4, she loves them even more and plays with them constantly -- using them to build little cars, little pens for her toy animals, shapes, etc. My husband and I enjoy playing with them too - and when my niece and nephew are over (age 9 and 13), then enjoy them too. This is a great toy for a family with a wide range of children. It also packs up very nicely; although the creations can be very tall towers, when you snap all the pieces back together, it takes up no room at all. We brought these on a cruise ship and it was great because she loved playing with them at dinner but they didn't take up any room in our bags. Huge success!
