The materials were attractive to all ages of students from 1st grade through 8th—and adults.
The youngest students had no trouble using the materials and building the first half dozen simple constructions.
The pieces held up very well under six sessions of student use; no materials were broken, bent, or torn, even though some fell to the floor and were stepped on.
Though most students followed the tasks on the cards, some students preferred to be creative, and the materials lend themselves well to creative play.
