Description
Building type toy that was basically brightly colored PVC pipe. Had wheels and flat panels to build actual rolling cars and little forts. Kind of like a giant plastic erector set.

I had these as a kid and remember being tortured by my older brother with them. He built a large wheelchair out of them and would strap me in and not let me out. They were a lot of fun other than that instance though!

My brother and I had these too. we always complained that there weren't enough plastic panels in our set for "walls." They were great for making forts and throwing sheets over, though.

These were by far the best toys our parents ever bought us!!! We used to build forts, motor homes, cars, houses, and all kinds of other things. We loved them!!!

Wow! It is awesome to know that someone else remembers these! None of my friends seem to remember them. These are by far the best things I ever got. You could build everything with them. LIke others, My only complaint is that they needed more panels. Still, cars, a swing, monkey bars...a chair and desk...what couldn't you build with these things? I have a little half sister and little cousins who still play with these things and love them!! :)

The year we got Omagles was my best Christmas ever!

ahahahahaha! I'm going through papers, trying to get rid of warranties, etc, for things I no longer own, and I just found the parts price list for the Omagles. We still have them: the kids built lots of stuff with them. And we still have one table in use upstairs, and I use an Omagles table for my telephone in my office! btw... my older "kid" just turned 30. This is a classic that will be passed down to their kids!

My son, 28, has been building all sorts of creations with the Omagles I saved from his youth. It's really the only toy I have saved all these years. He has built a cart to carry his 17 month old son around, a desk, a fort, a mini house with plaid blanket for the carpet and Christmas blanket for the roof. Of course, all of this is on the premise that his little boy enjoys the creations, which he does.

My Kids got these from their grandparents for Christmas one year and they were, by far, the most beloved and played-with toys of their childhood. They are now in their 20's and STILL talk about them from time to time. Hands down, they were the best toy ever created!

My son and his friends built carts and forts. They would play almost every day from around the age of 7 to 11. I don't think any other toy was that popular!

I had these as a child and my older brother would help me build things. I loved these toys and now I have been able to pass them down to my 5 year old daughter who is enjoying them as much as I did.

We have a two year old boy and my wife is due with our second boy in less than four weeks. Our son loves the Omagles set we have (my wife and her brother played with as kids). Anyone willing to sell me another set so that we can have more pieces? I will be glad to pay through paypal to insure the transaction. Thanks, Rob, Bo and Caleb

Bought them for my 4 sons in the mid 80s. Older brothers would build wagons and such and delight the little brothers. We had two super sets and they were by far the best toy investment in terms of usage and enjoyment.

This was the greatest toy. My kids, now 34 and 30, had such fun with them. I played with them, too. I cannot believe that they no longer make them. What a shame.

We just remembered them thinking back, and when we used to/still call them "omagoggles" not the correct Omagles. Ha ha, they were so much fun - too bad they still don't make them. Boo. We probably would buy some to play with right now.

My 3 children now ages 28, 30 and 32 played with them for years. It was the best and most played with toy in the play room. They still talk about all the fun building with them. I wish I had saved them. Now I'm going to purchase them for my grandchildren.
