Bought the product as an alternative to Legos, and because they "do something", rather then just sit there.
1.) I put it together with my 7 year old grandchild. It was fairly difficult, so I did most of it.
Pictures were nice, but need to be CLEARER, so we can see the parts better. Plus I had to keep flipping the rather large paper instruction to see which parts to use. If you are familiar with Legos instructions, you will also be disappointed. Legos instructions are easier to follow and understand.
2.) Part broke after using for 10-15 minutes, due to having to pull back the catapult as far as possible so the dart would fly more then 3-4 feet. My grandson was very disappointed that we couldn't get the darts to fly farther.
3.) Darts were hard to load, they are top heavy and kept tipping, falling and/or jamming; hard to get to darts to rest properly in the catapult;
4.) The gear designed to hold the catapult cocked so we could load the dart didn't work under heavy pressure (pulled back all the way). Gear kept slipping and would only hold when catapult was pulled back half way.

    This product was for 14 and over. I admittedly purchased this for my younger son. There could be better instructions with it our check points to ensure you're doing it correctly. We had a couple mistakes that were arduous to resolve.

              My nephew went to work immediately on the 1st model, which took hours (because he is only 11). He finally got it put together & was beyond stoked to try it out. Unfortunately, the string broke on the first try. We talked him into trying the next model but were quite disappointed when we noticed that there were no directions for the 2nd model. This was such an awesome gift, since it was equipped to build 2 models. We were only able to make the 1st one though.
