The 5th Element Zome Tool Kit is great for people who like to make crystalline shapes. After earth, air, fire and water, this form was revered by ancient Greeks as the shape of the universe! The dodecahedron is widely regarded as the most beautiful of the 5 "perfect" Platonic solids. Anyone can build this big, beautiful model in a snap! The Kit contains 71 parts: 21 white nodes, 30 medium blue struts, and 20 long yellow struts, plus detailed instructions.
Ages: 6 years +

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. Ages: 6 years +
In the Cube Madness Zome Tool Kit, three different sized cubes seem to spin randomly around a central point... yet there is beauty and order to this madness! Each cube is in golden ratio to the next, and its corners touch the faces of the next -- always in the exact same relative place. The geometry is related to the 5 cubes of the dodecahedron and represents a mysterious link between nature and the human-made world. The Kit contains 83 parts: 25 white nodes, 12 short blue struts, 12 medium blue struts, 12 long blue struts, 10 short yellow struts, 8 medium yellow struts, and 4 long yellow struts, plus detailed instructions. Ages: 6 years +
