My four year old daughter loves to build with anything and everything she can get her hands on. You can bet when I presented her with this set, that she was extremely overjoyed and bubbling with happiness. This Candy Set is ideal for building all sorts of candy structures that develop skills in your child such as challenging them to to follow instruction. I like that there are full color illustrated instructions in the included manual that demonstrate what pieces they'll need from the set to make things like a car, swing, and a house to name a few. But this set isn't limited to just those things, children can then be encouraged to think up and create their own personal masterpieces! Ninety-two pieces of various candy are included in this set. There's plenty to go around and would be fun for more than one child to share and use at the same time. I found the pieces to be quiet durable and are sized perfectly with their chunky weight and colorfully sweet shades of red, green, orange, yellow, purple, and chocolate! My daughter could easily put pieces together and take them apart with no trouble. The set is really durable and that something I appreciate in any sort of product made for children to play with. She loves playing with this set and discovering what interesting new things she can make up to show everyone! I asked her thoughts and she said it was really fun to play with and that she loves having something other than just blocks to use to build things.Overall, we all really adore the Candy Building set. It's great for developing fine motor skills as well as thinking up new things in a fun exploratory way! If you have a child that loves to build as much as mine, you'll most definitely want to think about purchasing this really neat set for them too!

Would never recommend this product. Maybe kids may have enjoyed it at age 2-3 for the colour but if you think your kids could actually build anything forget it. The pieces don't stick together at all. Unless you use glue all you have is a big box of colourful plastic and disappointed kids.

Disappointing, frustrating toy for all!!
By Disappointed educator

About Me Child Care Provider, Educator
Comments about Learning Resources Candy Construction™:
The children were excited to see the bright colours of this building set but that is where the excitement ended. The pieces do not stay together when attempting to construct the toys in the booklet. The green and blue connectors, the chocolate panels and the bendy twists do not snap/hold together which makes building frustrating and a HUGE disappointment.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Hi Disappointed Educator - Thank you for taking the time to let us know we've dropped the ball. Our goal is 100% satisfaction and we've clearly missed the mark. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and allow us to get your students building once again. Thank you -Selene

Pieces keep falling apart. Very frustrating
from Bothell, WA
I usually am a big fan of Learning Resources, but not this time. It is very appealing visually but that stops there. All the pieces keep falling apart and it is very very frustrating, even for me. I do not recommend at all this set. It is kind of useless as you cannot build what you want because it comes undone every time you add a piece.
Merchant response: We are so sorry that you received a defective product. We would love to send you a new one, please contact customer service at email@example.com. Thank you.

My 5 yr old was excited to use this toy, and built some wonderful things. He became extremely frustrated as the pieces kept falling apart. Nothing held together tightly so his amazing creations kept getting spoiled. I will not use this toy with my kindergarten class, and am returning it to the store.
Candy Construction considered a favorite
By The Teacher
from Summit, NJ
I use this product in my Inclusion Preschool Classroom. Children may select it independently during Free Choice time (which they do almost daily), or I will use it to work on specific targeted objectives during Learning Centers, such as sorting, counting, adding groups, etc. The fine motor components and embedded math/problem solving opportunities make this a great classroom choice.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Wonderful toy of high quality
from Charlotte, TN
As it is a gift to our young grandson, the colors,texture and "feel" of the set provides endless possibilities for him to design. The flexible "twizzler-like" rod allows for movement and tactile differences that are not found in other building or creative sets. The colors and candy design draw him to the set, giving him another perspective of shapes and movement he can incorporate into whatever he decides to make. I would highly recommend this set to anyone who wants to engage their child/grandchild in something other than watching television or playing video games. The set allows children to use their imagination and promotes their small motor skills.

I have this in my Preschool and bring it out in December. The children LOVE it and have built cars, lolipops and lots of other things with the pieces. I just gave one to my sons family and got the same reaction!

My preschool class LOVES this set. It engages both the boys and the girls. They like to follow the directions to build items and also create things on their own. Really GOOD quality pieces!
Building Fun for All!
By Second Time Around
from Salt Lake City, UT
This is such a fun set! It comes with a guide that has step by step instructions for building different things. The instructions are so easy to follow that my 4 year old can understand and do them himself. I had almost as much fun building as my son did. The parts are very durable and easy to put together. My son can build these on his own but it's also fun to play with him. We love that all the pieces look like candy and that makes it even more fun. It really brings out my son's imagination and I think it's a great set. I would highly recommend this fun and creative toy. **I received the product free of charge in order to do an honest review. This in no way affected my review**

Candy Cars and Candy Houses are a hit!
By Stephanie J
from Richmond, VA
Just looking at the box the kids got excited. Thankfully there was a booklet included to get you started on the candy building. The kids didn't need it, my daughter had suckers for everyone where as my son was building candy houses and candy cars. The pieces are large and easy to connect together so even small hands can put them together.There are plenty of pieces included in this set for multiple children to play together. The pieces are very strong and withstand toddlers well. The Candy Construction set is fun and unique. It's great for both boys and girls...parents too. At our house we need to work on returning the pieces to the handy box when we're done playing. My daughter likes to carry the "suckers" around with here and share them with her baby dolls.I received this product for review purposes.
