My son and I really enjoyed building this together. He would not have been able to build it on on his own and he is usually really good at building things. The instructions could have been a little more detailed and the pieces were hard to put together even for me. Aside from those items, we had fun.
This toy brought my son and I together and we were able to problem solve together. I helped him find the correct pieces since they were in different bags and we talked through how we thought it should be put together. We took turns on different steps and spent a lot of quality time together. It took us about 20-30 minutes to put together and we enjoyed each minute.
Even though I don't think my 6 yr old could have put it together unassisted we really liked doing it together and spending time together. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
