The Bunchems Mega Pack has more than 400 pieces including 370 colorful soft plastic hook and loop ball shapes (they look like the burs of a plant) about 1 inch in size, 36 accessories (facial features, body parts) and a guide book offering a "how to" squish and connect the shapes to build 16 creatures; it even cites the number of pieces needed to create them. From there, it's off to the races.

Fair warning: if your young builders moonlight as scientists, they'll be exploring other surfaces where the shapes will cling such as upholstery, curtains and rugs. Yes, they do adhere to many fabrics, but they're easily removed. Did he really see if they'd stick in his sister's hair? The website provides a simple and effective detangling fix.
