5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Lego set!!, May 22, 2010
This review is from: LEGO Star Wars Death Star (10188) (Toy)
Outstanding Lego product. My seven year old saved for over a year to buy this himself. It is worth every penny and for him every "little" toy and sweet he couldn't buy while saving for this. After reading other reviews, I decided to keep a long to see how many hours it would take for him to complete this set. The grand total was 18 hours over a 4 day period. The only help received was separating the pieces once a bag was opened, the time to do that is counted in those 18 hours. He found the directional booklet (which is HUGE) easy to follow. The piece itself is amazing, the level of detail, the amount of places in which to re-enact movie scenes, the number of minifigs, makes this Lego at their very best. My son says he'd buy it again if he didn't have it. Truly worth the amount it costs. I would HIGHLY recommend this to any Lego, Star Wars fan or collector.

How did your 7yo save $400 for a year?

Some kids just save - I was blown away when I discovered my son, at 14, had 2K in mutual funds. When I asked him how, he said, "for every gift money I've received and every lawn I've mowed, only 25% went into my pocket, the rest to the bank."

Yes it is totally a nice surprise when you find that some kids actually understand the value of money and how it is acquired!

And by the way, it took my son only two years to save and invest that much.

sorry...just found out people could post questions on reviews..
He saved money he received as Christmas Gifts, Birthday Gifts, "lucky money" given to children from my husband's side of the family for Chinese New Year, as well as doing odd jobs, above regular chores. ie: $2. for dusting, or helping vacuum, and being given 50% of whatever received for recycling, if he helped take the cans/bottles in.

That is awesome. I'm hoping mine will continue to save for different things, he already knows a set amount of anything he gets for Bdays & holidays goes to his college account and the rest is his to save or spend.

Awesome to see the success he had in saving. I'm sure this is likely the case, but I have learned how to stretch a dollar a little further. Watch this site for Amazon Warehouse deals, they are used set (just damaged boxes Amazon receives, bags are almost always sealed) that go for much cheaper than MSRP. If he is going to build them watch for those, just another way to make that hard earned dollar go just a little further.

Birthday, Christmas, and Chinese New Years monetary gifts (last one is a tradition on hubby's side ). Plus money made for doing extra chores.
