Actually, GoldieBlox sued first and BBoys threaten to sue. In any case the toys are a great idea.

I like the idea.. some of that stuff (i.e. the swinging toy car in the front yard) looked pretty dangerous though haha.

Wow. I saw an interview with the woman who invented these a good while back on a not-so-popular show on a short segment...at least a year or two ago...and she was asking for pre-orders so she could fund her idea.

I remember the concept and her reasoning behind starting the toy. Cool to see it has reached this many people.

Bought it for my girls.

They played with it once and haven't opened it since. The initial play is cool because it has a story to go with it, but it's not a toy that encourages experimentation.

Buy an erector set or Snap Circuits instead.

Company seems like a bunch a dicks. Use a BB song and then preemptively sue the BB so they can continue to use it?
