    Functional and fun

    It was so fun for my daughter to build! It was one, more complicated project that was easily understandable. I loved the comparison of the mechanical sweeper vaccum to that of how a whale eats.

    Art and engineering

    It was a fun combination of arts and mechanics that provided a great learning demonstration. My daughter loved building the sweper just as much as painting the whales.

    Picking up legos

    We liked the different elements: painting, building, creating something that has movement, and then playing. Loved that it truly worked and could pick up a variety of objects -- especially functional for picking up legos!!

    A New Favorite

    My 6 year old son loved it because it was easy enough to build (almost) by himself. He was very proud and liked both the artistic aspect of painting the whales and technical aspect of building the sweeper. His favorite kit so far.

    Fun to build and play

    My daughter loved putting it together. She loves playing with it as well. She was so excited about it that she took it to school to show everyone. Well done!

    Great for Legos!

    Useful product once completed, steps to make sweeper were easy to follow and my 5 year old is still using it to clean up his toys at night. (Great for Legos)

    Love the utility of it

    Fun and straight-forward to put together AND the result is useful. Instead of more stuff laying around, this actually serves a purpose. It's great for sweeping stray legos.
