My husband spent two full days trying to assemble this. Frustrating as there are no instructions, except for pictures, which are unclear. There are a million parts, which have to, with much difficulty, be punched out of the wood. Gears don't match up, so the "instrument" is unplayable...
I use it for fun and display purposes

I bought this for my husband's birthday, and was worried about how it would turn out. He spent 2 days in my floor playing with it! He had fun building it AND trying to figure out how to play it. 10/10 would buy again!

Our 12 year old, who is quite determined and proficient, took great joy in constructing this model of a hurdy gurdy.

Elegant and elaborate (gears within gears, and decorative flourishes) this 100+ piece kit comes together beautifully- all without glue! The directions are easy to follow, so if you're the type that spends evenings putting puzzles or legos together, you'll be entranced by this kit. I especially like that the wood is doubly thick, so it's sturdy enough to have kids play around with. This is well worth the price. I would like the makers to consider making an orrery kit too!
