Product Description

The box is large, making it expensive to return.

I think this was a lot of fun and would recommend it to anyone whose kids have an interest in architecture.

These are thin plastic that do not even lay flat.

I bought this for my 14 year old son and was very disappointed. The toy is limiting, due to the size and shape of the templates and the plastic walls. The support pieces for the walls are "chunky" and get in the way of the overall design. A pad of graph paper, plastic templates that are available at office supply stores, a good metal ruler, some paper and tape are a better investment than this.

This item looked like a neat way to make multiple designs and then take them apart and reuse the materials. However, I was very disappointed by the limited number of sheets of drawing paper and even more disappointed to see the "templates." These are thin plastic that do not even lay flat. They are not standard template weight plastic but little more than plastic film. My 12 year son is working with it, but it certainly was not worth the $50 we paid let alone the $85 that it is now selling for.

I am 16 now and remember using this when I was around 10. I loved it. I would build a lot of houses. Some people are complaining about the number of supplies that come with it, but I just went out and bought more large tracing paper. I think this was a lot of fun and would recommend it to anyone whose kids have an interest in architecture.

Costs way more than it should. Not much more than a few pieces of lucite, color pencils and a four page booklet. The box is large, making it expensive to return.

It's pretty pricey for what you get but my stepdaughter really likes it so I guess it was worth it. Basically the product could easily be replicated at home with a little effort.

I enjoy designing dream homes and have been frustrated by not being able to build models. With the Young Architect set I was able to put together a model of my design and see if it actually 'works'. So, even tho I'm a grown-up, I really enjoyed playing with the kit.
