It was fun and easy to assemble, and I like that it used the box.

It conveyed this element of physics really easily and captivated my 7 year old’s imagination. The table to complete was excellent. The pulleys were fiddly to set up but not impossible so just the right amount of challenge. A thoroughly absorbing activity.

Instructions were amazing. My son does not read english and yet he figured it out on his own.
