Ages: 6 & Up
Manufacturer: OgoSport LLC
Price: $29.99

OgoBuild makes it easy for kids to concoct inventive creatures, sculptures or whatever other wacky contraptions they can think of using durable plastic parts. Shapes in this set include a bouncy spiral, orbs, silly hands and feet, paddle-like parts and a number of connectors. Pieces attach by locking into place using a ball and joint mechanism that is easy for small hands to manipulate. For additional creativity, children can place the reusable stickers on their objects giving them eyes, mouths or other designs.

Although the recommended age for this product is 6 and up, our younger testers were quite adept at working with the pieces. Just beware of smaller parts around children that might stick them in their mouths.
