    We used to have something like this that used magnets and foam tubes. The kids loved it, but it was not stable. This seems much more stable and certainly has more parts!

  6. This is the neatest creation…..would love to win this…..really my kids would!

  7. I was surprized at all of the different designs available. What a great idea.

  8. This looks so fun! What a fun way to engage creative play and get their minds off the screens!

  9. Saw this on Shark Tank last night and it looks like hours of fun. Just what a Grandma needs for her grandsons!

    I love to make the castle and submarine for my niece and nephew!

  11. This looks like the coolest fort set EVER! I am bummed I didn't see it on shark tank. The round pieces look interesting. Thank you for sharing.

  12. I spent my time building forts in our garden as a kid, with bamboo canes, clothes pegs and plastic sheeting. There's nothing more fun! My boys would love this!

  13. THis is a prime example of all the ideas my son has in his head ON A DAILY BASIS! so great to support dreaming and building!

    I saw your presentation on Dragon's Den last night and can understand why you declined Robert's offer. His comments on your Magic Kits being extremely successful were a huge endorsement, congratulations! My grandson would LOVE to make all of them, he loves building forts out of cardboard boxes with his father, so I know he would get many hours of enjoyment making the rocket and castle.

    I loved the castle and the rocket! My boys and I would have so much fun building them!

    Endless emagination at work ~ if play is learning for children then this is a lot of awesome fun learning ♥ I learned that each time you can build something new ~ never ending ♥

    I was so excited when I saw this give away. I've seen Fort Magic before and it looks like so much fun!

    The pirate ship looks like so much fun! My son would love one of these kits!

  20. I live that there are so many options to get creative with what type of fort to make. My granddaughter's would have a blast making the castle. These are one of the top toys and I can see why as it allows so much imagination and creativity. Love it!

  21. I like the versatility and how kids are encouraged to use their imaginations. No need for instructions!

  22. I love that you can build so many different designs with just one kit!

  23. This looks like so much fun! I love the idea of making hurdles in the yard for the kiddoes!!

  24. We meet up with all the neighborhood kids in the park on the weekend, and I always bring snacks and toys. I can just imagine how much fun they'd all have building canoes and paddle boats–things you don't normally see in toy form! I'd be my kid's hero!

  25. This would be great in a classroom!! The reading center would be so inviting!

  26. I like that this is something my 9 year old can do. We have tons of things for younger siblings, but he's getting a little old for most of our toys.
