Rated 5 out of 5 by Gebby Hours of fun in the winter!
I have given a few of these for Christmas gifts in the past and the families I gave them too love them! They are very durable! With the bright red color, they are easy to see in the snow. I often order extra snow ball makers so all the kids can each have their own. They make great snow balls in a short amount of time, making them great for snow ball fights. Kids can spend hours outside making their block fort with the block makers. The product is made of really durable plastic that will last for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlaskaFrosty Great kit for active kids
This has turned out to be a very nice kit for my 5 and 8 year old boys. Lots of snowballs and forts have been made. Kind of expensive for a bunch of red plastic but the parts are well made and should last many winters. The free shipping was very nice and it was very fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanorator Too much fun
Never make a lame snowball again.
Make a snow fort that's the envy of the block.
Lots of fun. Only catch, the snow must be wet. Dry fluffy snow doesn't pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anarie Great castle making kit!
My son loves to make snow castles and sand castles. This kit is perfect for both. He and his friend are having fun with the two snowball makers as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kgegich Great snow toys!
These toys are awesome! We just got these for my son and daughter (8 and 4) for Christmas and, luckily, had snow over the Winter Break so we played with these toys a lot. The large,rectangular pieces are great for making igloo walls and the snowball makers are the best I've ever seen/used. Our children shared the snowball makers with a neighborhood friend who is only 2 1/2 and he was able to use them too -- very simple but effective toys. Great purchase and I'd recommend these for anyone 2 to 102 who'd like to make a perfect snowball.

My Grandson loved this item. He is 6 and New England cooperated by providing the snow!
His Dad thought it was an Architectural Wonder that they created! Adult in the picture Hated when it got knocked down...there is something for all ages in this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by horsejumping Outside YEAR round fun
Our kids got these as gifts this Christmas. The snowball makers are AWESOME! I can't stop talking about how great they are. The fort/castle block makers are really great too. My husband and 5 yr old daughter literally spent the "entire" day outside making this tall wall and snowball ammo. The set price was AWESOME as well. All we needed to do was buy an extra snowball maker for our 3rd child. Such a GERAT deal!
They also received a book on different things they could build in the snow from LL Bean and it tells you all kind of GREAT stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rozmova Nice gift
The children who received this gift seemed excited about the possibility of building a snow fortress (but we don't have snow yet). I was disappointed in the packaging, though. If you are getting this as a gift, get an extra-large gift bag for easier wrapping/gift-giving.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momto5inOh Great family fun!!
Thankfully, we did not have to wait too long until it snowed enough this year to use the snow castle/snowball maker set! We purchased these to encourage our family to have fun together this winter! Today, we had blizzard conditions, so we bundled up, took out our set (and a snowman family kit from L.L.Bean as well), and had a delightful time! The youngest girls even enjoyed the snowball makers (5 and 7) and the oldest (including Dad) girls enjoyed building a snow fort taller than their Dad!! We've only used it once so far, but we look forward to being able to use these for many more winters to come (hopefully with our grandkids, even?)!! :)

Saw this at a friends house and had to get it for my boys ( ages 9,7 and 4). Product was very durable and keeps the kids entertained in the snow!
