Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible for a kid of any age My son wanted this for Christmas, and my engineering father bought it for him. My 10yo and I have built many wooden models from TinkerCrates, and are expert Lego builders. This looked perfect for us to tackle together. Sadly, this has become a lesson in frustration and blistered fingers. Most of that is caused by the need to use tightly fitting, toothpick-sized dowels to hold everything together. Inserting the dowels has caused blisters from trying to squeeze them into the holes. The kit includes 15 dowels, but you will need over 50. The directions say to cut the dowels with scissors, but that leaves a “nub” that interferes with the operation of the gears and other moving parts. Also, it doesn’t tell you that you shouldn’t discard the leftover dowels, so I didn’t know to keep them until a few had already found their way into the trash. We have not finished this yet. It will be a miracle if we complete this without me breaking anything else. The pieces fit too tightly, and a few spots have broken while trying to assemble. The directions are also a bit nuclear, and we have had to go re-do steps. I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone, especially kids.
