BEST CRATE EVER. So fun and creative!!!
My six year old grandson absolutely loved this project. He actually asked to send in a picture of himself making it. Both he and his 12 year old brother look forward to each month's selection and I've ordered extras!
My daughter loves it, easy to assemble, she loved painting the planets. The only downfall is the sun keeps falling off the top, I will need to super glue.
