Superstructs are like your old Tinkertoy set---on steroids! Kids can construct seven different models with this big 175-piece set. What's new are the 16 large gears that add motion to the Superstructs. It comes with a 59-page step-by-step building guide to help kids create a ferris wheel, clock, a drilling car, a thumping watcha-ma-call-it, a three-wheeled car, a crane with gears and a lawn mower. Kids can build these or create structures from their own imaginations. Comes in a sturdy storage container. Pieces are dishwasher safe. 5 & up.The container came full of pieces and an instruction booklet that is sure to provide hours of fun. The set is for children over 5 and Evan is 4, so I still need to help him. He would look at the pictures and get me the pieces that were next. He has even been doing some of the steps by himself as we use the set more often and he becomes familiar with it.
Building the machines is a lot of fun, but WABA fun takes it one step further. The gears work together on the one we made and it pops up one of the "Straw" pieces. Isabella thought this was so amazing, so we tied a string to the car and she pulls it along. I absolutely adore that there are so many pieces so you can build more than one "machine" at a time. It isn't necessary to take one apart to build another.
My only issue so far is that in the booklet, the wheels are red. There are no red wheels-only blue. This isn't a huge deal, but if you have a color coded instruction booklet, then they need to be the correct color. Also, there are two different size "straws" that are red. I feel like one should be red and the other should be orange or something.
