Not a Toy
on January 15, 2007
A great EDUCATIONAL kit, but not really a toy. It took a little one on one time with my son (8yrs) to get him going on this himself. He's proud of all the projects that he is able to complete. But it would have been helpful to know before hand that this set makes several different types of loud, IRRITATING noise. This kit does not seem to have the lasting entertainment value that other bulding toys have--my son likes to check off each project he has completed, and as he has completed most now (3 weeks after Christmas) the set is seldom played with. Experimentation with the kit is a little nervewracking for him as shortcircuiting the set could potentially ruin some of the components. His twin received the Snap Rover set with the idea that the two sets could combine for more creative fun. That hasn't happened.
I wish I'd bought this set for homeschooling purposes, not as a Christmas gift.
