Fun and challenging! Great product
| Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
I love to give my son Lego products. These building kits really encourage his ability to read & follow directions, troubleshoot, and improvise when needed. This kit was challenging for an 8yr old, but that's why he liked building it, plus all the little details, e.g. moveable moonstone wheel,6 minifigures + skeleton, potions desk w/flasks, wind up chains, motion staircase, and Jack McHammer's car. They always include extra pieces of those that are most likely to get lost. Too bad they are so expensive.
