My 7 year old son is obsessed with this crate!! He loves showing us how the clay coral changes color depending on the water temperature. He was thrilled to be able to complete this mostly by himself, too - so proud!

The whale and shark kits were so easy and well put together! The clay was dried out in the coral kit, though, so we couldn't do that one. :(
