My grandson was so excited to have this come in the mail for his birthday. He immediately opened it and put it together!!

The kids loved building the lantern from the easy-to-follow instructions. They didn't need any grown-up help! They also enjoyed playing with Morse code and practicing sending their own messages in dots and dashes.

My 3.5 year old daughter made this with my husband and could not be more excited! She is very excited to use it to pretend and real camp. Another high quality, educational, fun activity . Kiwico has been a lifeline during covid. Thank you times one hundred!
