Roylco Straws and Connectors Review and Giveaway


As a kid, I loved to build things.  I remember playing with a box of Tinkertoys while I visited my great aunt.  My cousins and I would spend hours sitting in the floor building all kinds of contraptions!  When my daughter was little, I realized that she loved to build too.  Now that Little Man is at the building stage, I was thrilled for us to be offered the chance to review Roylco Straws and Connectors.  We received a box to review and Chefy and Little Man started building immediately.

Little Man was happy just putting them together to see how long he could reach!  Chefy wanted to build the rocket, but in the end, he and Little Man spent over an hour making POLES...LOL!  Future FBI decided to give them a shot during nap time, and she had a great time.  She made a bird cage, and we put a stuffed parrot in it.  Very cute!  I'll try to get the photos posted, but that particular camera is being aggravating! 




We enjoyed building all kinds of things with these straws and connectors!  I really feel that they are designed for kids 6 and older.  I have had a 4 yr old and a 5 yr old play with them, and they had more problems.  The school age kids seemed to enjoy them just as much, and had a much easier time designing things with them.  Theses are a good quality, and I was pleased that you could cut them to the length you want!  These Straws and Connectors are a great toy to have on hand to keep your kids occupied.  They make a great rainy day diversion!
