Zome is a completely unique construction 'toy' in that it is easy enough for a 6-year-old to play with, while at the same time letting adult users build truly mind-boggling models. Many of the construction toys available today use magnets to stick together. That’s pretty cool, but unfortunately the weight of the parts restrict building any large or mobile structures. Zome uses precisely constructed pieces that fit together perfectly and offers the ability for kids to expand their objects in up to 61 different dimensions! When completed a Zome built object can be picked up, turned around, and examined from any angle. This kit has 121 pieces and is packaged with a plastic tray for sorting and storing parts.
