My 9 year old granddaughter really enjoyed this box. The directions were clear and straightforward, the finished loaf was delicious, if not quite as perfect as the picture. Cooking is an important life skill and one children can enjoy, if presented correctly.

My 10-year-old granddaughter loved it, even though you labeled it for 5-year-olds. She’s a French cuisine specialist. You should develop more cooking/chemistry crates!
