The problem is that there's nothing holding the pins in place because they're just pushed into cardboard.
So if you can imagine taking a thin sewing needle or thumbtack and pushing it into a piece of cardboard, you can imagine how easily the slightest bump (from young fingers) will knock those pins astray or push them in too deep, or worse - make them loose such that they fall out of the board.
Then you get stuck having to disentangle your thread and remedy the situation and begin again.
It's a test of patience for a little kid. I love the look of the product and the concept of empowering the kids to do neat crafts.
But the flimsy cardboard backing makes it feel cheap and then often fall apart under the stress of the constant push & pull of the string and the constant bumps from little hands.
I wish the makers had come up with a pin & backing solution that was firmer. It might require a little more dedicated use of the insertion tool that helps you get the pins into the base but in the end you would wind up less frustrated and with a craft that's more durable.
My daughter is 7 so we did this together - I stuck the pins in place on the cardboard backing and let her use the tool to push them down. She was able to run the string between the pins for a while, but as soon as it got stuck she'd let go of the string and it would undo the previous times she'd gone around pins.
We noticed that the designs pop a bit more if you outline the shape with string once you're done filling the middle, but that wouldnt work on every design. I really wish the cardboard pieces to use were bigger, but we'll just reuse the box Amazon delivered it in and go by the scrapbook paper section in the store if we want to make a really big one. Basically this is the perfect starter kit!

That said the patterns are beautiful and easy to follow and I am sure that things will improve with practise.
