Behind the design
“When you look at it, the project looks like a simple box. The coolest part is actually hidden. Building and customizing the electromechanical guts is where the real fun is.”- The KiwiCo Product Design team

Times we tested the spin art outside the crate and splattered paint everywhere: 1
My 8 year old completed this on her own. This is her first ever kit and she can't wait to do more. You can look on Youtube for step by step directions by KiwiCo. Very helpful for kids that are visual learners.
This was a HUGE hit in our house!! My 7 year old needed help with assembly (mainly with the breadboard and resistor part). She was SO proud that she helped to make this. Additional paint color choices would have made this even better (maybe red, so that some of the colors could blend to make new colors?).
7 year old son loves this project. Even though for ages 9+ he was able to build it with minimal adult assistance. It is very cool to make different spin art creations. The two things I would recommend KiwiCo to add to the crate are 4 additional empty paint droppers to add other colors and a paint syringe or other tool to easily refill the paint droppers.
