Nice kit, had a lot of good things to add. The final product was very nice but it did take 3 adults to help make it. Not for kids under 10.

    The package was shipped very quickly. This is for my special needs nephew for Christmas. I wanted to get him something he could make himself and use, and something that would peel him away from his tv touchscreens for a while. I truly hope he'll enjoy this, he like to build and be creative.

                The product arrived in pristine condition, even packaged in recycleable cardboard. The items are just enough to be used completely without leaving a big pile of leftover materials to make a mess! The Easter Bunny is very creative this year and substituting items from Uncommongoods for an overly sweet-filled treat!

                    I bought this for my 10 year niece who loves arts and crafts, but has done it all. I'm super crafty too, and I was struggling to find something new for her to try craft-wise that's age-appropriate. Then I found this great kaleidoscope kit and knew it would be a fun, creative exercise and create a lasting gift to look at again and again. I'll keep looking back to the catalog for other do-it-yourself crafty kits.

                      I got this for my cousin for his 7th birthday. He thought it was pretty cool (I also got kudos points from his parents) and we had fun deciding what should go into the rotating part to make the pattern when you look into it.

                      The only thing is the directions where a little confusing. It's not like I'm bad at directions ( I can read Ikea direction really well) its just they described things in a weird way. Really just use your common sense and it'll be fine. Also the glue took a REALLY long time to dry.
