It looked like a really great project but turned out to be too difficult for my 11 1/2 year old grandson to enjoy by himself. He is now going to have to wait until he visits me & can bring it here to have me help him. Delayed happiness.
This kit exceeded my expectations! My son LOVED it, plus there were several great activities for him to do. I appreciated that it was a legit kit with good quality plaster and pieces vs just filled with junky plastic toys you buy nowadays that end up in the trash! With more plaster, we could easily reuse parts of this set as well. This would make a great birthday gift for friends too!
I liked most about the kit, the instant reception my granddaughter had on her 7th birthday.
