My four year old daughter loves to build with anything and everything she can get her hands on. You can bet when I presented her with this set, that she was extremely overjoyed and bubbling with happiness.

This Candy Set is ideal for building all sorts of candy structures that develop skills in your child such as challenging them to to follow instruction. I like that there are full color illustrated instructions in the included manual that demonstrate what pieces they'll need from the set to make things like a car, swing, and a house to name a few. But this set isn't limited to just those things, children can then be encouraged to think up and create their own personal masterpieces!

Ninety-two pieces of various candy are included in this set. There's plenty to go around and would be fun for more than one child to share and use at the same time. I found the pieces to be quiet durable and are sized perfectly with their chunky weight and colorfully sweet shades of red, green, orange, yellow, purple, and chocolate!

My daughter could easily put pieces together and take them apart with no trouble. The set is really durable and that something I appreciate in any sort of product made for children to play with. She loves playing with this set and discovering what interesting new things she can make up to show everyone! I asked her thoughts and she said it was really fun to play with and that she loves having something other than just blocks to use to build things.

Overall, we all really adore the Candy Building set. It's great for developing fine motor skills as well as thinking up new things in a fun exploratory way! If you have a child that loves to build as much as mine, you'll most definitely want to think about purchasing this really neat set for them too!

I usually am a big fan of Learning Resources, but not this time. It is very appealing visually but that stops there. All the pieces keep falling apart and it is very very frustrating, even for me. I do not recommend at all this set. It is kind of useless as you cannot build what you want because it comes undone every time you add a piece.

    Comments about Learning Resources Candy Construction Building Set:

    My almost 5 year old plays this game at least 3-5 times a day. He plays with myself, my husband, and even will play by himself. When we first got the game, we used his fingers, and our fingers to show him how to add and subtract, but didn't talk at all about the evens and odds stones.

    Now that he's comfortable with the addition and subtraction, and is starting to know some of the answers without having to count, we've introduced evens and odds to him. He doesn't even know he's learning!

      Would never recommend this product. Maybe kids may have enjoyed it at age 2-3 for the colour but if you think your kids could actually build anything forget it. The pieces don't stick together at all. Unless you use glue all you have is a big box of colourful plastic and disappointed kids.

          My Special Education 7th & 8th graders love it! We added some of our own rules, they loved doing this. For example: when you land on a number, you roll only one dice & multiply the number you landed on by the number you rolled. We also keep track of how many times each one wins, comes in second & rolls zero. When you roll zero you have to go back to start.
          Excellent way for my students to learn their facts while having fun.

            This game was gifted to my 5 year old. He loves games, and this was no exception! He took to the bright colors and the fun animals pieces. The game is easy to play and the math concepts he is practicing is embedded into the game play. He doesn't even realize he is "learning" while he is playing. A great game for any child ready to take on some addition and subtraction skills!

                My 5 yr old was excited to use this toy, and built some wonderful things. He became extremely frustrated as the pieces kept falling apart. Nothing held together tightly so his amazing creations kept getting spoiled. I will not use this toy with my kindergarten class, and am returning it to the store.

                  My little boy loves playing this game. He is 4yrs old. We play this nearly everyday after school. It is wonderful for improving his understanding of addition and subtraction, plus understanding odd and even numbers. It is also aiding him from jumping from using his fingers to count on to mental arithmetic.
                  It's fun too! He doesn't realise he is learning as he plays the game as its lots of fun. Have recommended it to lots of friends.

                    I use this product in my Inclusion Preschool Classroom. Children may select it independently during Free Choice time (which they do almost daily), or I will use it to work on specific targeted objectives during Learning Centers, such as sorting, counting, adding groups, etc. The fine motor components and embedded math/problem solving opportunities make this a great classroom choice.

                        Learning Resources Word Construction makes spelling and word building a lot of fun! It's definitely a unique and different option than what I've seen out there. The nuts and bolts approach is clever and it's appealing not to just boys but girls too. I would like to mention that the age recommendation is for children ages five and up but even younger children can benefit from this learning tool. My son is is three and half and he's been using these like a pro spelling consonant vowel sight words that we've been practicing this school year.

                        This set comes with thirty printed nuts, six bolts, a helpful activity guide, and a plastic tub for easy clean up and storage. I like that the set provides enough pieces that more than one child can use it easily. The nuts come in the colors orange, blue, green, and purple. The colors are vibrant and the pieces aren't too big or too small making these easy for kids to handle. Each nut has a little lip on the inside which needs to be lined up with a part on each bolt to slide it into place. Once in place, the nuts twist easily on the bolt to make a variety of different letter and word combinations. There was no trouble or frustration whatsoever for my kids to figure out how to begin building words.

                        The green bolts feature vowels and the letter y while the remaining colors feature a variety of consonants . Note that not every consonant is included in the set. It's not a huge deal but something to take into consideration. Each bolt can hold up to four nuts. My kids have been spelling all sorts of two, three, and four letter words! I've used this set for them to practice sight words as well as to reinforce my 1st graders spelling lists for each week. They've also asked to play with these throughout the day aside from our schooling time!

                        After testing them myself and offering them for use with my kids, I've come to the conclusion that it's totally hands-on learning at its finest. This set will get much use and I think it's a great way to reinforce spelling, phonics, & word building aside from pencil and paper. Highest of recommendations!

                          Learning Resources has become a big part of our home this year with our daughter starting preschool, learning word recognition, and so much more. Learning Resources allows us to keep the fun and learning going at home not just at school. Our 4 year old is full of energy and motivation to learn new things and get down to business when she receives a new Learning Resources toy. What i love most about Learning Resources is they have allowed children to continue to enjoy themselves while learning. She never gets bored and thoroughly enjoys sitting and trying out these new tasks. Learning Resources sent us their new Word Constructionnofollow set. It involved putting together words in a creative "construction" themed way. She learned quite a few new words and had many questions and kept her mind going figuring out new words to create. This is definitely a new favorite to add to our list.
