The girls have played with this several times already. We discovered more instruction plans online here. At first the grid-like plans seemed really confusing and difficult to interpret. But once we really looked at them, they are not hard at all. Both my 6 and 8 year olds were able to navigate them. They created the heart (shown at the top of this post) and the robot.
And finally, here is one of the sculptures my 8-year old created on her own.
Big Box Set so she can make even bigger structures! This is a MUST-HAVE on any kid's wishlist for this year!
Here's a video that shows the owner/creator talking about Q-Ba-Maze and I was even more delighted to learn that this was created right here in the Twin Cities! I LOVE supporting local products!
