A posh version of the cardboard box forts I made as a kid, although this will undoubtedly last longer given the higher quality / strength of the cardboard. My kids absolutely love it and have not stopped playing with it since it arrived, highly recommended although I have to be honest I would not have purchased had the kits not been on sale. Standard price is quite steep in my opinion

This was a great alternative to the traditional blankets and chairs forts that we're consuming our entire basement. The quality of the product is good. The cardboard is not flimsy. My only concern long term is if the cardboard or black discs lose their ability to hold over repeated use.

We are so happy to hear you are enjoying your Explorer Kit. Our kits are designed to be used over and over. With that said, the Connectors (black foam disks) will experience some scarring over time but the friction fit tolerance should maintain to continue to build with.

I purchased the shark kit (1 builder kit + 2 creator kits) for my nephews and we had such a good time building it together! They’ve since created many of their own types of forts using the same pieces (also my sister loves it because the forts are easy to take down and store flat in the box). Such a great activity for kids!

My 7 year old daughter and I loved this gift. We spent a great couple of hours creating a fort and outfitting it with interior comfort living conditions as well as outdoor signage that reads: “No Boys” lol !!! I wasn’t allowed to go in and enjoy it after I helped her build it!! Long story short we had a great father daughter time playing/building together. Highly recommended !!

Nothing is perfect and I couldn't find excellent so good was the only choice. The kit was excellent for young (6+) active kids. This kit has provided hours of fun and learning for our two youngest grandchildren. They have developed creativity, problem-solving, building principles, and basic structural engineering. You do need a large area for this to be employed successfully.
