My daughter had to put it away and hide it from my grandson, because he was so curious about it. They have to set aside time to assist him with it. He's only 6 but he's very academically advanced for his age. It was very hard ti decide what to choose. I'm on a budget but if I wasn't, I would have chosen at least four.
Great project. My kids loved building it and playing with it afterward.
Fairly easy assemly. Instructions could provide a little more detail. (Instructions do not show metal disc on head, so we do not know whether the disc should be on the top or the bottom.) One body piece was not cut correctly. We plan to build our snake without this body section. Should be fine. Still building. Not yet tested.
