I made this with my 8-year-old granddaughter and we both enjoyed the process. The finished product is close to perfect, but not 100%. The cams don't stay in place properly and need to be adjusted almost constantly. The good part is that she understands exactly why and how.

My grandson loved it. He made Christmas 2021. And already was excited to pull it out this year again.
