A child of 7 or older needs this basic building set first. It has all the parts necessary for creative design. Then the other building sets can be added.
My son is 22 and married, a salesman, musician, engineer and entrepreneur. He was playing with these until he was seventeen. He was able to create and play with these building toys to make all sorts of other toys that were only limited by his imagination. This is the type of toy that lasts for years as they grow up morphing into what ever they a ready for at the moment.
You will be astounded at the creative things your child will build. It takes some time on your part at first, building models with them, but then it just takes off and the sky's the limit! Be sure not to skip the step of working with them at first, or you will be wasting your money and the product will be sitting in the closet for years, your fault if it does. I just can't say enough for it!
P.S. Don't waste your money the on little sets that just build one thing. Rather invest in the larger sets that add to their collection of building materials! And one more thing, get them a plastic box or two that keeps the small parts together safely so they don't get lost! They are very important especially in later years when the building projects get more intricate.
This set is for another generation, my little niece and nephew. Who knows what they will build?
Have fun with your kids! They are only young once!!!
