My 11 yr old loved making the paper circuits. He was able to do it on his own & was very proud of the end result. The lights are very bright & the little lamps switch out easily from the base. Just pick it up & put on a different style.
The directions were great and the kids had no problem understanding them.
It was fun having the different color options. It was easier than the other crates which my daughter liked she felt more like she could do it on her own.
