If you have not heard about MAGFORMERS they are colorful, sturdy plastic shapes that you build with! I got the Power Construction Set which comes with 47 pieces total: 4 triangles, 10 squares, 2 diamonds, 2 trapezoids, 4 mini rectangles also including 4 sectors, 2 arches, 1 super rectangle, 1 figure, 17 accessories. For ages 3 and up as this has choking hazards for younger kids.
My Opinion: I have a feeling my great nephews will love this for Christmas as it has so many construction vehicles to build that boys will like and adults too. The perfectly stacked shapes fit together seamlessly and a great value for the price. To learn more visit http://www.magformers.com/index.html
