    I usually buy toys that the recommended age is 1 -2 older than the child I am buying for. I got this for my 12 yr old nephew who takes robotics in school & it was very difficult for him to build. Definitely needed an adult to help him. He enjoyed it very much once we helped him build it. This is one of those toys that I would recommend you stay with the age suggested.

    Pretty good kit, but not all instructions included

    Pretty good kit, but not all instructions included. You have to hunt down two of the three kit's options online and those instructions are not of the same quality as the included printed instructions. Don't get me wrong, you can build the other options from them, and it is a nice kit. It could just better. Also, the darts are not the same size as nerf darts. more like the size of the nerf mega darts.

    I bought this for my grandson who is almost 12. We started it together then he took over. Great way to spend vacation away from video games. He has ADHD and it kept him engaged until he was finished. Couldn't get to fly 7 feet but he was happy.

    Bought this for my cousin who this set is age appropriate for. It provided a fun challenge for him and he liked that their were different ways you could put it together. He hopes to get more sets from this brand.

    I got this for my son for his birthday. I wanted something other than video games for him to have. He loved it and it was just right for his age.

    Darts are top heavy and don't lay complete leveled on the track. Also, not as powerful as the Catapult Vex Kit. But, at $10 it was a good building experience.

    The product itself was good. I have it displayed on my TV stand. It came with extra additional parts. The instruction was missing a couple steps at the end. But it can figured by looking closely at the image.
