This is a great toy for 8yr olds and up. I bought this as a birthday gift for my great- nephew who chose it. We are still in the process of connecting the pieces. It gives them
a chance to look at the blueprint / instructions and choose the pieces that fit. It makes
them think and it takes time. Nice gift to buy ,causes one to spend time with the child,
great for building relationships.

This was a gift for a boy and he did not seem to like it.

The boy opened it and played with it for maybe 5 minutes before he lost interest. Although everything with the product seems to be well.

    We had fun building this together, lots of small parts but once you get started it goes quickly. Easy to operate but keep small kids away because it can break.

                I did already know it'd be a 3 hour setup to play it but just wished it was more like 20 min. Doesn't seem like it needs that many pieces. I'd only recommend if the person was willing to put so much time into it for assembly.

                Of course my husband ended up putting most of it together but it was a good bonding experience for him and my son. Once together my son was mesmerized by it. I've gotten him k'nex before but this is the coolest one because it has motion. Would definitely recommend for children interested in building and physics.
