Fun gift!


My son is a civil engineer and it sits on his desk at work. He gets a number of people asking him where he got it. I may have to add to the set so he can actually build something.More > < Less


Works well with the red bricks


The mini materials red bricks are a joy, but they wouldn't be nearly as fun without the mortar to cement my son’s ‘masterpieces’.


too much fun!


We gave this to our son-in-law, who is currently building a new home. He LOVED it, and started playing with the blocks as soon as he opened it. He is now enjoying it as a conversation piece on his desk at work. He had never seen anything like it, and feels like he is the first kid on his block to have these cool blocks!More > < Less




My husband use to deliver concrete blocks. These remind me of him. They are so accurate and with the pallet they are wonderful. Made very well, and the price was really great. Thank you for the memories.More > < Less
