I was surprised that this was paper and not plastic—originally I thought it was a snap-together plastic that could be used again and again. It's a good quality paper but it felt like a lot of money for what it was.
A bit challenging at first, once you make your first tetra (building block) you feel a real sense of accomplishment and satisfaction! The pieces fit together to make more and more complex shapes. The possibilities for what you can build are endless. Encourages imagination and creativity. A wonderful activity for older children and adults. Good family activity. Once you get the hang of making the tetras I find it to be tremendously relaxing and stress-reducing.

I had a great time figuring out how to combine these pieces in different configurations to make different shapes, and then combining them, endless possibilities! I took some to a family party and gave them to the kids to play with, they were ages 8 through 16 and all of them enjoyed this. I got these through the Kickstarter campaign and will be coming back for more after seeing how much everyone enjoyed them at Thanksgiving. Thanks to Jonathan & the Move38 team for creating these!
Troxes origami building blocks are just challenging enough to be interesting but not so challenging as to be frustrating. My son and I both enjoyed playing with them for hours, experimenting with different shapes and configurations. Overall they held our interest longer than I'd have thought possible. Highly recommended!
