Not what I expected- not sturdy-not fun

I love buying toys that inspire my children to be creative. I also buy toys that we (the parents and my teen daughter) can use to play along side the children.I am generally a fairly easy to please person. I rarely write a very poor review. Maybe because I research things before I buy them - I'm not sure.But this was a disappointment. The peices were very difficult to put together (my 17 years old daughter and I were building it for my little ones - ages 2 & 4.5). And we had trouble. Building it was no fun at all!! The cardboard it is made of is difficult to connect; and when you finally connect it, you have almost destroyed the piece to do so.I bought two sets. And we got them out one time. I don't think we ever will again. It was too frustrating.The paper covering the cardboard is already peeling off in several places. Even if it was fun to assemble a creation, I doubt these pieces of cardboard with colored paper glued to them would last very long at all. Overpriced. No Fun. Not Sturdy. Frustrating. Cheap. Don't buy it. And certainly don't do what I did and buy two at once time!!
