Our grandson was truly excited with this as his b'day gift, especially when we suggested his dad could work with him to build the many different models w/motors. It would be even nicer if it had a hard case to ensure little pieces aren't lost or eaten by his 1-yr old sister!

This is very hard to build - even my husband has difficulty (and we're only 1/4 way through the first model). There are tiny bolts and nuts that stick to magnets while you're trying to connect them. I'm sure my son will like it once it is built. He is nine and could NOT build it himself.

    My son is a future Engineer and loves to build. He is 8 and has Aspergers. He gets a little frustrated by the small screws but he works through it. They are a little pricey but he builds and rebuilds and rebuilds so it is worth it.

              This was a Christmas gift for my 8 yr old nephew. My sister tells me that he LOVES it! While he's only had it a few days, he's played with it non-stop. She's all ready thinking about another set in the future.

                    We bought several versions of this product. We have a Giving Tree at work and many of the tags were for Age Appropriate Gift for a boy age 8 - 12. My husband found these and loved them. I'm thinking of getting him once for Christmas.

                      I bought this one for my son, and he loved it. It's a little hard to understand the instructions, but still fun to play with. I wouldn't recommend this to be played around small babies, since there are way to many small bolts and nuts.
