PICTURES FROM THE KIDS BUILD OF
My kids loved putting these together. My son said they are fun as legos. The had a lot of fun and were able to do it independent of adult help. They are 9 and 10 years old. My younger son said that this would be hard for those that are younger and cannot read, but with an adult's help it should be just fine. They loved watching the sets come together and enjoyed all the aspects of the build and play. They also enjoyed the small book that came with the set. They stated that kids will be sad when the adult makes them put them away because they will have to be completely disassembled to fit back in the box it came in. A few of the pieces were loose when placed together, which caused a few small issues for keeping the pieces standing. There were a few minor issues, but overall, the kids thought these sets were really fun and a great way to work your mind through building and free play.
