I purchased the explorer and creator kits as a Christmas present for my niece. I will be delivering them to her next week and spending the weekend building forts with her. Just want to say that the customer service was astounding. I had accidentally typed in a wrong digit for my address. John answered my urgent phone call and followed up with multiple emails to assure me the issue was resolved. I received the kits a few days earlier than expected. Super excited to have this fort building adventure with my niece!

The product was superb. Easy to use, grandchildren loved it. Get some battery LEDs and some glow stickers etc. I cannot express how much they loved it. I got two kits. Not only easy to put up but critically packed down to very flat boxes that slid away so not taking up huge room (hardly any). Genius!

As a tiny suggestion (and this in no way reduces the 5 star rating one bit) consider better delivery options. Allow me to choose a next day/nominated day delivery experience. But dont take that as criticism - just a suggestion.

Actually too early for exact reviews because I bought the kits for the great grandchildren for Christmas gifts. However they did ship on time with updates on delivery. Soon after the Christmas Holidays I will be able to give better reviews? Looks like a great idea for family bonding with the children.
Thank you so much very much.

I have yet to open the box (it is a Christmas present) but I have to tell you I am so impressed with the personal customer service and attention given by this company! I cannot wait for my 7 year old mine craft crazed kid to enjoy the mine craft kit! It may end up fully built in his room! (It’s decorated Minecraft).

I ordered these kits a few years ago for our grandsons. The boys are homeschooled and hands on learning, creativity and imagination are always a focus for these busy little minds.
These kits have mostly survived not only the three owners, but adventures with additional playpals.
The boys are older now and we are giving them 3 additional explorer sets to allow them to extend their builds and/or replace a couple of older pieces.
Our one dissatisfaction is that we requested these be mailed to their Mom, mailing address confirmed, but it ended up coming to us. Can't afford another shipping fee to forward it on, so they will not get this until after Christmas as they live in another state and we are not traveling during the holidays.
