What I Love: I love that the possibilities are endless. The manufacturer does sell WEDGit cards that one can use to try and copy designs to build or you can just use your imagination.
What I Would Change: I would love to see a “mini” version so it would take up less space
Rating: My kids played with this starting at age 3. It continues to be a favorite at ages 9 and 11. There are many pieces, but I love that they are not so small they end up lost.
