Age recommendations are not correct
on February 10, 2014
This is a very nice kit. Well made, nice in concept and execution.
I think the recommended age of 5-10 years old is incorrect though and most 5-7 year olds will have limited ability to put these together without significant help. The pieces are intricate and the directions require a good bit of patience. Have twin 5 1/2 year old boys and they received some Bloco kits for Christmas, this one included. They are very proficient at most building toys, puzzles, and crafts. They do well at Legos with minimal guidance, including the 7 yr+ kits. The Bloco kits however are just beyond their abilities at the moment and they were discouraged at how difficult they were. They can do them with significant help, but that's true of amost any building toy. When the age says 5-10, one should expect a 5 year old to be able to play with it on their own.
I think a better age recommendation is 8+, or at least 7+.
