The inventive and colorful Clicformer building pieces can connect four different ways: click, stack, fold and roll. Because the pieces fit so well together, it's occasionally a bit difficult to pull them apart. The Clicformers Basic 150 piece set brilliantly includes a small tool to separate stubborn segments.

The Clicformers come in a variety of shapes—hexagons, squares, wheels, axles, buttons, and curved parts—which easily became vehicles, birds, headphones or musical instruments. The children then created abstract items, vividly using their imaginations as they described what they were making. While children diligently worked on individual constructions, they examined and discussed, they helped each other, encouraged each other, and complimented each other. An excellent play experience.
