Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanManna Family Christmas Gift
Ordered 2 of these as Christmas gifts for 2 families with children. They are sturdy and well made, with enough pieces for everyone to use. The plastic is heavy duty and should hold up with either snow or sand. Hopefully, it will be a gift they can use for several years, not just one season. The Snow Castle/Sand Castle kit has Flexible Flyer logo on the side, which gives me confidence - not sure about Snowball Makers, but they appear to be made of same material.

Grand daughters now have something different for their new cabin. Should present lots of challenges and fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NotSoOutdoorsy Snow Castle/Snowball maker
We got this as part of Christmas gifts and I let my son open it early so we could use them.
I was surprised to see how sturdy these are built. The other store bought ones we had are about half as thick in material and broke easily in the cold.
The other part is the snow castle makers stack! The nicely fit into the bigger size so we don't have a huge pile to deal with. I put them in a big plastic bag and we're ready to go!

One of the best Christmas presents for the grandboys together.
Better than we thought. They will have fun making forts and snowballs this winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deanner Our most loved Christmas gift last year
My son bought this for my daughter last year for Christmas. It was probably our most used and loved Christmas gift. It's held up beautifully, and the snowball makers are a blast.

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.

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.

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.
