My seven year old son is very outdoorsy. He plays football, martial arts, and swims. But he and his dad are Star Wars fans. it was a total hit. Bot he and his dad bonded while putting this together.
The instructions are simple, yet interesting enough for him. The pictures are clear. At times he actually caught on faster than my husband and then he proudly showed his dad "how to do it right". It took them about 4 hours over a period of two nights. They took their time, enjoyed conversations about Star Wars movies, actors and actresses, and capped off each night by watching a favourite Star Wars movie!
The kit was complete. All the small bags containing the tiny pieces were clearly labelled. The instruction book was in colour, with clear pictures and instructions, and moving from one completed piece to another was a pleasure for both of them. I was worried that the small pieces would be annoying, but they enjoyed the detail that the small pieces made possible!
The final product was amazingly detailed. Whoever designed this thing is a genius. I'm not a Lego fan. I haven't got the patience for this. I'd rather read a good book. But even I got excited and tried my hand at it for a while when I saw how beautiful it was going to be.
We'll definitely get more of these as soon as we can find the space to display them!
