I would say it was hard but it is really cool. I find lego parts with it. The writing was hard. But we finally got it.
The life of this toy wasnt very long maybe three months with moderate use but my kid enjoyed it together
We had this as a project for the 7 and 9 year old during the holidays. They had help from their older cousins. It was a great group learning experience and the kids really liked the end product.
