Shapes were much larger than I had hoped - up to 3 inches square - but are sturdily constructed and their translucency and colour appeals greatly to the kids I tutor. A lot of thought has gone into the design of these 3D shapes. I look forward to using them for volumes work. The plugs for the holes in the detachable sides are easily removable but are in some cases too loose (I envisage losses). Overall, a good product, well designed and reasonably priced.

Pity this item is a bit fragile. A couple of shapes have needed their sides gluing back on. But other than this a good item, colourful and a useful size. Good for understanding geometric maths facts.
