The book and plastic skeleton kit is not only great learning tool for kids the skeleton is nearly 1:6 for action figures.
Reviewed in the United States on April 17, 2008
The book and skeleton kit are terrific for any child or adult interested in learning more about the structure of their body and how it works. The book is well written and laid out, easy for any child from about seven to understand. Even though the main focus of the book is on the skeleton each chapter concerns different aspects of the whole body. There are pages on cells, muscles, the circulatory system, the heart, brain and sensory organs, respiration, digestion, the skin and nerves, even a small section on the reproductive organs writen simply to illustrate the difference between male and female and how life begins. The chapter toward the end of the book covering broken bones and sprains is particularly useful for any active child. The very finely detailed scale model of a human male skeleton is excellent. Well worth the purchase price alone. For me or any 1:6 action figure (12" tall) collector, customizer, and sculptor the skeleton takes on hew importance as an artists model and possible fodder for a diorama - the trenches in WWI, or a long forgotten prisoner in the castle dungeon, even archaeological remains (just use your imagination). So overall a very good purchase on many levels at an good price.
