Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
1) It does use a lot of imagination
2) I like the idea/concept
3) The individual pyramids are a good shape for making
4) I like the ball it makes when all pieces are together, I can even throw it in the air and catch it and it won't break
5) It is very addicting and fun at first, provides days of fun
1) The magnets aren't strong, and you can't play with your creations without a piece falling off (I couldn't even shoot some hoops with it!)
2) The pieces get lost very easily if you aren't 101% careful
3) I got very bored of it after the first week of using this (maybe because I used it too much :)
4) There isn't a very wide variety of things to make
5) Can get very frustrating when making something because the magnets misbehave a lot (like ADHD)
Even though it gets boring after a week, I still use it sometimes. Maybe it would be better if they can make it stronger and come up with other cool shapes that can make a ball. I would recommend using it for car rides only.
It has a lot of potential, and it's very versatile. It's a great creative toy. You can make art out of it. You can use it to build. The sky's the limit.
It looks sharp on the shelf. It's a great office game. It's a great gift for a game or puzzle lover or people who love doing things with their hands. I did end up giving a few as gifts after people fell in love. It has been well-received.
My only complaint is that we have one. It's a great item to have a few of.
