Consumer review by: jeffreyleng (



Good for super basic user like my 8 year old boy. Seriously a toy that you should introduce to your children at a young age. Its not easily broken. Cannot play too complicated game, so after a couple of months, my boy will proceed to more complex stuffs.

Robust - not easily broken and spoilt.

Slow and sluggish, bulky and old "square" design.
