      I do not agree with the previous review that the plastic is of poor quality. It is very durable. Yes, plastic is going to get scratched during play; but my set looks great just out of the box, and there is no other way to achieve the see through design in which you can explore volume. That's why I love these! My daughter enjoys adding rice & sand to the blocks, and she's only four. We've also used a light panel, & mirror as different surfaces to explore the blocks. These blocks will definitely grow with her, & I look forward to watching her make discoveries with them!

          You've heard the cliche "Don't judge a book by its cover." I think I should have listened to that. I looked at the neat packaging of this product and the very attractive display of the geometric shapes that are supposedly inside the carton... and I bought it. I loved the colors and all the possible math concepts I could teach using these manipulatives. But when I opened the box, I was so disappointed by the quality of the plastic. It was so scratched and low-grade, you would think it was a second-hand item bought in a garage sale. I just bought it today and I deeply regretted wasting money on it. If only I could get the chance to return it immediately, I would. I should have gone with the wooden or foam type instead. It might turn out more sturdy.
