This product is interesting. It works well, and is very easy to assemble. I bought it for a 7 year old nephew and it sits in his closet. His face was the look of disappointment when he opened it up at Christmastime. This kid isn't exactly a genius though, as he was dressed as a minion for Christmas morning... in fact I would say the moment that I saw him dressed as a minion I knew he wouldn't like this gift. That stated, if you have smart nephews, I'm pretty sure they would like this toy.
For the price and educational value this is an excellent product. The main drawback is that there are a ton of little screws and I don't think there's any way a child under 12 could get them all in alone. That's a tall order even for an adult. I put it together with 3 children ages 4, 6, & 9, and it held all of their interest to varying degrees, but I had to do 90% or more of the assembly b/c the screws are so small and it was tough for them to keep a hold of and tighten the screws. There were a few assembly issues along the way, but figuring out those issues and getting everything working is part of the fun of a project like this and everyone was very pleased with the final result.
Since he loves frogs, I bought this for my 7 year old grandson as a birthday gift. He enjoyed assembling it by himself. I thought there would be more parts than there were, but it was just perfect for his age level.
