    Our Santa's shirt wasn't long enough to cover the torso but the instructions were clear and fun to make (easy to assemble). My daughter had fun building it.



    Santa wobbler seems to have some disconnects in sizing so my granddaughters weren’t able to even get him together. The cloth for Santa's clothing was not big enough.



    Did it together with my 2.5 year old. She loved doing it, was really patient and actually focusing. Now carrying it around everywhere!



    My granddaughter has not even done it yet. She only got it 2 days ago.



    So festive and fun! My 5 year old was able to complete the project from start to finish by herself and had a blast doing it!



    It was so much fun to make with my 5 yo. He loved how it turned out and was very proud to display it with the rest of the decorations! This couldn't have been cuter or more fun. Good work!
