This toy is AMAZING. It appeals to the particular interest of my child, both stacking and plants but it's also very well made. The ONLY one thing that might need improvement, is how the base interconnects, the pieces don't sit just right and they wobble, my solution for this was to hot glue them together so my child could stack the flowers and move the base around. I was surprised that the base of the leafs and the small stem pieces are very hard and durable, they are not 100% resistant to chewing but they resist chewing without much deformation so if your kid does this, this is a good thing to consider. I also love it's recycled material. I'll definitely be buying a second set and more toys from this company.
I bought these for my 16 month old to practice her fine motor skills with. She LOVES this set. The bases are awful - she doesn't even use them nor do we (adults). The bases are unstable, too lightweight and have a hollowed out (vs. flat) bottom, which means I cannot retrofit them to be more stable - eg. velcro. But, the stems and petals are great. Now, because she puts everything in her mouth, I took out all the stamens and top pieces, leaving her only with pieces that have holes in them. But this creates endless fun and flowers upon flowers. She walks around with one hanging out of her mouth (blowing it like a whistle, though it's not...), and carries the pieces everywhere. It did come with a "storage box" made of cardboard, but we tossed it. Sad, because that's not very "green." However, the box was too small to functionally work for storage. Overall, if Green Toys would put a flat bottom on the base or a way to stabilize the base, that would be great, along with a plastic storage case that actually fits the pieces.
Funny story; I bought this for our three and a half year old for an Easter gift. The product description says ages two and up. While she enjoyed playing with it for a bit, it soon lost her interest. However! Her newly turned ONE year old sister LOVED this toy! She immediately started putting the flowers into the holes. The pieces (at least the ones we received), aren’t small enough to swallow, and hold up well to rough play. My younger daughter is now three and a half and STILL builds flower towers with this toy! I would say in general that this is geared toward younger children, and a big factor of how much play time it receives is also your child’s personality. My older daughter was not an early builder, as in she didn’t like to stack blocks, etc., but my younger daughter is! This was an excellent purchase for us!
I purchased this back in December 2014 as a Christmas gift for my son. It has been one of the most used toy (if not THE most used toy) in my house. My son is now 4.5 years old and my daughter is 2.5 years old. They both love it and always have it out. It's so durable (watch out if pieces are left around since they will hurt your feet!) and invokes creativity. They constantly are bringing us flowers stacked as high as they can make them. Now today my son just did something new with them which made me want to finally write the review. He put the flower pieces on the bottom and top which made it like a sculpture! Really awesome and such a worthwhile toy I've never regretted getting.
My 2-year old loves this! Bought as a second birthday present and she immediately knew how to do it without any instruction. Very intuitive for her age. Nice colors without being overly pink. There are 3 of the center pieces that I had to put away in storage because they are choking hazards for her age now (too small and thin), but the rest seem fine. She can spend up to an hour playing with this. My only suggestion would be for the pieces to snap together. They just rest inside of one another loosely, so if it gets knocked over they fall apart. Often she will bring a flower to me, but if she doesn't hold it upright, it comes apart and is frustrating. I think this would be appropriate for minimum 18 months to up to maybe 4 years? We'll see when she gets tired of it, but for now it is great!
Got this set for my 27 mos old daughter for Christmas since we got her much older brother a building kit. She loved building her flower towers along side him, but 8 mos later still likes to play with it, though usually she is using the pieces with other games. It appears to be one of those toys that just clicked with her and her little purse usually has a flower in it. She has also put crayons upright in the green base on her craft table. These have turned out to support quite a bit of open play, like blocks. Oh, and the pieces are very sturdy and NOT stinky plastic.
We bought this for our daughters 4 year olds birthday party. She loves flowers and I think this will get a lot of use out of it. Her and our 2 year old were both playing with it a lot when I first opened it. I love toys like this, rather than most things you see in regular stores.
I bought these four a 14 month old and she ABSOLUTELY LOVES them!! She has sat content for at least an hour or longer putting different combinations of flowers together! A child's a attention span is only supposed to be the amount of their age... This set has thrown THAT rule completely out the window! I was also pleasantly surprised with how many pieces the set came with! Maybe I just didn't read, but this set comes with a decent amount of pieces to keep little ones busy (and parents too!). I would totally recommend this set to any family!! Love love love it!
My then 19 month old son got this for Christmas, and loved it immediately. He continues to love it and can spend 10-15 minutes (a very long time for this child) stacking and knocking over and stacking again. My 3.5 year old likes it too, but has never been as interested in stacking/building toys and it doesn't hold quite the same fascination. There's enough pieces that they can play with it together without constantly stealing each other's flowers which is wonderful.
I bought 2 for Christmas- one for my 3 year old niece and one for my 2.5 year old second cousin. Both were a big hit, even with their mothers! I thought the plastic might be a bit too brittle for little hands and easily snap but they tell me they've held up well so far. Just a neat idea to build your own garden, create your own flowers. I just thought that was so cool for a little girl (little boys would probably dig it too- any kid who likes to garden and grow things!) And its nifty during the colder months when real gardening is limited.Great price, good quality and nice gifting option.
I bought this toy for my daughter when she was three years old, and she has loved it ever since. She is six and still plays with it! Her younger brothers, ages 18 months and 4, also LOVE this toy! My toddler is just getting into it and loves the fact that he can build with it - other toys like Duplos are still too hard for him. (Seeing how much he loves it is what prompted me to write a review! Three kids out of three!) My older two do a lot of role playing and make up stories and pretend to give people flowers. Every once in a while I put this toy away in the closet for a few months, and my kids always notice and ask me to get it back out. That does not happen with most of our other stuff! This is a great gift for kids ages 2-5 (boys too, if you can get past the girly colors!), but I think even 18 months is old enough. Such a unique, creative toy. Now I'm getting 3 of them for my nieces for Christmas!
I bought this for my 2 year old daughter and she loves it. She's really into things that she can put together and take apart.PROSThe flowers are easy to put together and take apart. They are very cute and there are plenty of combos you can make. So far, she will play with this toy for an extended period of time. Plus, it's recycled, which is wicked nice.CONSThe base is light weight and can tip over if you make the flowers too tall on one side (I just help my daughter rearrange the base to better support the taller flowers she likes to build).I highly recommend this toy, especially if your child is a "tinker" and likes to put together and take apart.
This toy is so awesome!! I have spent hours online trying to find something different to entertain and interest my daughter, who is 2 1/2. She loves blocks and puzzles, but needed something new. This is the ticket, mammas!! Such a fun toy. And I cannot express UNIQUE enough. It is such a nice blend of building and creativity.GOODLots and lots and lots of piecesBeautiful colors - it is so pleasing to the eye, that I am continually compelled to play with it tooFlexibility - It's super flexible for how you assemble your own flowers in the garden. - Practically every piece will fit into any of the other pieces. The only ones that won't are the pistols, which have to be the last part you put in (if you choose). - There is also a lot of flexibility in how you construct the base. Each of the 4 base sections can be attached to each other from either side. As a result, you can create a garden that is a serpentine line, a circle, or a combination of the two. - Your garden always looks different because there is so much variety in the pieces. Even the stems with leaves come in 2 different lengths.Satisfaction - This toy provides such a feeling of satisfaction when the child is done building his/her garden. They start with pieces, and end up with this beautiful creation. With blocks, you get a tower. Big deal. With this, you get a masterpiece!No Smell - A lot of plastic toys come with a funky smell that makes one wonder if there is any bad off-gassing going on. These do not smell. (though I haven't tested them for lead)BADDesign - It would be nice if the designers made each base piece a bit longer. It is quite a challenge to use all of the flower pieces because the holes in the bases are too close together and the pieces are too big to use adjacent holes in the base.Storage - I wish it came with a better way to store the multitude of pieces. It comes with a super-flimsy, thin cardboard box that isn't even big enough to close the lid completely. It would be nice if the makers packaged it in a small plastic container to use to keep all of the pieces. I will have to go and buy one, because the box cannot hold up to even light use, and it is necessary to be able to keep the pieces together in a more efficient way.Overall, a wonderful toy. I think this is going to be tucked away when my daughter outgrows it so she can use it with her children. It is so unique that she surely won't be able to find something similar when she grows up.
