    My son was so excited to get this for Christmas. Just challenging enough to keep his 10 year old interest and not to difficult that he gave up.Good price and fast delivery!

    Box arrived smashed and after my daughter put it together it didn't work. Not worth the hassle of returning.

    My grandsons had a blast, working together, which is highly unusual, building and playing with this while visiting with us. We enjoyed watching them work together to solve problems while succeeding in the end. It was a wonderful family project. We highly recommend. Our grandsons we ages 6-15. We celebrated with hot chocolate and s'mores in the fireplace. It was great fun.

    My son was able to put the second one together after i returned the first one. This toy is not for playing with. It reminds me of a model toy. Glue the pieces and never touch it.

    We gave this to our Grandson for a Christmas gift. They put it together and have changed the battery twice and it just doesn't work. It is long after the holiday so it is too late to return it.
