    A completely unique building set that feels a little bit like simplified, geometry-based K’Nex. Zome is composed of struts (slender, colored plastic rods) and balls. The balls are a white plastic that are covered in holes that are either triangles, rectangles or pentagons. The struts have connecting ends that match those shapes and since certain holes face certain directions, you can create some very cool and interesting geometric shapes! I’ll admit, these little guys are trickier than I expected, but were quite addicting as the challenge only made me more determined. This set has 30 balls, 15 blue struts in three sizes, 10 yellow struts in three sizes and 6 red struts in three sizes for a combined 93 struts. Parents should note that the included manual is the general manual from the creators, and not all of the designs presented will be buildable with this basic set. ~ Laura
