This is such a great rainy day activity! My four year old loves building forts and spends hours inside. We’ve also used it outside on sunny days too. It’s durable and strong. Highly recommend!
Great quality, stays together well and YES they do glow in the dark!!!
At first glance, this is relatively unimpressive - it's a bunch of balls with holes in them and very thick, sturdy, long straws. Everything is plastic and fits in a box that's just a little bigger than a men's boot shoebox. But really, that's where the genius lies, because before this, when my kids decided they were going to build a fort in the living room that meant that all my dining room chairs, couch cushions, and several sheets were being commandeered and used to make a wonderful (and messy) play area. This solves a good portion of that frustration - they can build a solid two-person fort, use one sheet, sometimes two to cover it and all my furniture and cushions are safe from the construction.
It's easy enough for them to assemble on their own, but goes much faster with adult help. It's not the most sturdy construction, but it's enough to have a fort last a couple of days. My son actually uses a few pieces at night to build himself a mini-fort in his bed so he can read at night with a book light without disturbing his younger brother's sleep.
Bought as a gift for my kids, he likes building , and this toy is really what I am looking for, it was very easy to assemble, kids and parents can play together, like it.
I actually love these more than my kids. We've only put it together once, but I had tons of fun and 1 set/package made a decent size fort, especially for kids.
My daughter likes this they play a lot of time on it. Stay away from the cell phone,
My kid loves it. I build a house for my son. He likes stay in it.
Bought this set for my friend’s daughter. She was really happy and built it right away. Quality is very good, it’s a good tool to teach kids how to think and build. I am very impressed.
My husbands best friend invited us to his sons 4th birthday party. I really wasnt sure what to get him however I know for Christmas I got a fort building set similar to this one for my nephew and he absolutely loved it. I know when I was younger I always loved building forts in the dining room using the chairs and couches as a structure to support my blankets. This fort set does all that for you! The birthdays boy was so excited to play with this he started to set them up right at the party! Along with this kit I gave him a larger sized blanket so he would be able to build the fort then hide in it. My husbands friend says he plays with it all the time. They have fun building forts they play with it for a few days then tear it down and build a new one. The kit is easy to understand and build with. It may be a tad difficult for smaller child to get the "rods" to fit into the balls to support them so if you have smaller kids they will most likely need a little help building their empire. I wish they had a cool toy like this 15yrs ago when my daughter was little.
I was so excited to set up a fort for our 5-year-old niece who was visiting. We wanted to do more than just take snaps of her with our smartphones while she is watching TV or her tablet, so we thought a fort would definitely make things more entertaining.
We popped together one of the pictures on the box and still had a ton of leftover pieces, so we had her build another square to connect to it. This kept her busy for HOURS during her visit since we can create so many different shapes! This set even comes with a handy bag to keep all of the pieces together.
As the set warns, it is NOT sturdy enough to climb on! However, it's plenty sturdy to hold up some sheets and blankets. The connectors can be kind of tough to put together at first so adult help may be required but after a few inserts the holes start to allow them to slide without so much kid white knuckle force. Overall this is a great set to combat screen time and pandemic boredom.
When I opened this box and saw all of the pieces, I was trying to figure out how I was going to store all of these pieces and then I saw that this comes with a bag. After taking all of the pieces out, I put them all in the bag and they all fit. This bag really does make it convenient to store these. The instructions it comes with helps with the variety of ways this fort can be made. I included a picture of what it looks like to install the sticks to the balls. On the balls themselves, there are holes that go in every which way so you're not just limited to either top, bottom or sides. The angles on the balls allows you to make a tented style fort if you want to. While this is just the sticks and balls, my kids wanted their fort covered. I just took an old sheet and was able to cover it with no problems. I found that these help build the structure of the fort and if you want it covered, it helps to keep whatever you are using up. This really does beat using sofa cushions that fall with a single nudge or tap. With this fort, if my kids tap one of the stick, this fort is still up. They have even gone as far as taking naps in their fort.
Definitely recommend! Originally purchased for twin 6yr olds. They weren't that enthused (my own fault for not including a picture of what it can do, not just sticks lol). HOWEVER, spouse's if you have a significant other like mine... Entertainment for hours! You name it he made it. The kids by default enjoyed many hours. Honestly though, great family play! We all love them.
Also a great purpose for unused flat sheets! Grab some clips to secure!
My kids absolutely adore this set! They love building and adding on and coming up with new dreams over and over again. It's like life size kinecs. They have started incorporating my linen and making true blanket forts which isn't my favorite but they're having a blast even being stuck indoors so I'm not complaining too much
I work with kiddos and took this building set to my work and the kids were absolutely drawn to it! There are 200 Pieces that consist of 122 sticks and 78 balls with frooves for the sticks to fit in. These are fun and easy to build with and you can make different structures to hidslr and play in! Love toys that get kiddos thinking, constructing and using their imagination instead of electronic type toys. Great buy!
As a kid one of my most favorite memories is building forts with my sister using chairs and other random items. We would then rip the comforters off our beds and use it to make the cover over our new "playhouse". I remember it always being good times so of course as soon as I found this awesome kit to build your own structure I was intrigued. I ordered it as a gift for my nephew, he is on the spectrum and is basically non verbal but he is getting much better and working hard every day. He absolutely loves building and creating so I had a good feeling this fort building kit was going to be a hit. The kit includes 122 sticks and 78 balls for you to fit together to create the best fort you have ever imagined. Anytime I can take my nephew off his electronic devices and into the real world I certainly do. He is very smart I cant wait to see the designs he comes up with. This is definitely better than any fort I ever built.
So fun as the possibilities are endless! It is so good for imaginative play and creativity!
It can be used in so many ways that it makes learning through play fun!! Children can problem solve, use creative thinking, and teamwork skills! I have seen other fort builders where it could be difficult for children to piece together but not this one! The pieces and connectors are so easy to piece together and I really liked how it came with a bag for storage. Active fun never disappoints with this Fort Kit! I have there straps, swing, and now the fort builder which I’m looking forward to purchasing a second fort builder set!
After guiding my kids a few times, they now spend time building an Igloo, Villa or various other forts. Once constructed, they spend hours hanging out under their fort playing together. Great toy set for learning and keeping the kids entertained!
Great product, my kids spent at least week on backyard play and puzzle houses, castles and labyrints. Well packed and 200 pcs more than enough. Also great gift we bought 1 for our friends.
I can't say I expect the kiddos to climb and hang on the forts they build since this is not designed for that purpose, but it's definitely sturdy enough for them to build and play inside. Just toss a light sheet over the fort and they will spend hours playing inside their "play tent". I'm very impressed by this quality build and product. And the best part is I see my kids use their imagination and creativity as they build this into various shapes. I highly recommend this product to any parent looking to entertain their kids both indoor and outdoor.
My kids love using this to help them build their castles. Good idea for your fort building kids
Absolutely love this Fort Building Set! Great product! Fast delivery! Kids like bright colors and the variety of figures they can make with this fort building kit! I love the quality and design! Storage bag is a great addition! Totally recommend!
