It was a big hit with my great- nephew, the first project he worked on after receiving his box. He's always excited to get each new kiwi crate every month and the special box was especially fun!
Fun project. Sun and light were a bit tricky and fell apart easily. Father and 5 year old did this together.
We had a lot of fun building this and learning about the planets.
