These are just ok. I had a couple dents and knicks in a few of mine because they fell out of the box during shipping.
I was not sure at first how I would like these but they are so beautiful and versatile. I also love how they incorporate with other Bauspiel products!
*Everyone* is drawn to these. They are fun to stack in a window and watch the light come through, use as loose parts, make patterns out of and use with other Bauspiel pieces. Littler kids love to plop in the holes of the grids and its fun for...everyone to make a wall of x-blocks and fill all the holes with cubes to watch them sparkle. After seeing my set, several other people have bought these themselves!
So many ways to play with them!
2 year old loves these, especially on a light table and with paired grid blocks. Some cubes have scratches after play, which happens fairly easily. Not an issue, just something to expect with the material.
