Space Chips – Space Ship
Each set comes with 22 Space Chips.

Space Chips Space Ship set is recommended for children ages 4 & up and will be available in early 2011.
 
MY THOUGHTS:
I am not a very creative builder, but my husband thinks Space Chips are pretty cool.  My boys are only 2 and 3 right now so they can’t build anything more complex than a triangle, yet.  They are slowly picking up on what to do and before I know it, they will be building all the Drons and creatures.  The Space Chips are pretty thin plastic (but not so thin they break easily) that you just slide into each other.  It is pretty amazing over what you can build with them, so far I haven’t built anything fantastic yet.  Inside this kit you receive 50 pieces – 32Traingles, 6 Sqaures, and 12 Pentagons.  Each is brightly colored and really there is no wrong way to slide them together.  I think this is a great starter set and was glad to hear they are coming out with more Chips Sets, since the more the better!  The recommend ages are 6 and up and once you get the hang of how to build, it is relatively easy.  Really the possibilities are endless over what you can build with them.
