iParenting Media Awards reviewers are a diverse set of parents, experts, licensed childcare centers and schools nationwide. According to the iParenting Media Awards' Reviewer:

"What are the positive characteristices of this product?" (Used to determine if the toy would be given an award):

1. "What a great learning tool! It is creative, and educational. The kit was in a really nice carrying case and the peices seem pretty durable. The FYI bits are a bonus for the 'builder.'"

2. "The building set is educational and fun as the children can construct and build models of manufacturing plants. The bonus is the tanks and pumps. The pieces are interchangeable as well so your model can be different each time you build, there are several variations."

3. "We found this toy challenging for our 10 year-old boys in a good way. It inspired them to use their imaginations and to make different forms. It also allowed and encouraged my children to work together."

"Do you think girls will enjoy this building set?" (Extra question not used as a factor in the determination of an award):

1. "Yes! And don't worry, I had girls check this product out before I completed the survey anyway. They enjoyed it just as much!"

2. "Absolutely! It was girls who reviewed this product, and they are excited to show it to their teachers."

3. "Boys rated this product and love it, but yes, girls will love it, too!"
