I loved the idea of this product. I thought my craft loving space obsessed 5 year old daughter would be excited, too. Unfortunately, the pieces included in the kit were just too subpar. The "moon stand" was a plain lightweight paper bowl. As she attempted to lay her plaster pieces on the inflated balloon, the stand would constantly tip over - making the process frustrating. The stand couldn't handle the varying weight of the plaster. The gloves included were adult size and she could not use them. The paint containers - little light weight plastic bowls - and the poor quality brush included did not lend itself to creating a quality piece. Great idea - but the contents are very cheap (I could have put together a better kit going to a local craft store). Certainly not worth the money. I am disappointed not only in the cheapness of the contents, but also feel bad that I purchased something so "disposable" and wasteful.
This is not necessarily a "play" toy, so the question regarding frequency of playing with doesn't really apply. However, I purchased this gift for my neighbor's 5 year-old grandson, he loved it and so did his 8 year-old brother!
My 5 year old received this as a gift and was very excited to do it. At 5, she needed some help, but enjoyed working on the model. Our box included a small, purple squishy ball toy that we weren't sure what it was for as it's not mentioned anywhere on the contents/instructions. There was also some confusion if we were supposed to do something special with the paint as the directions say to "follow the directions on the paint tube" and there are none-just had her paint the model as she liked-we'll see how it turns out! Great read along book to go with the kit and the plaster strips made things very easy to assemble!
It doesn't glow in the dark & isn't really sturdy enough to "play" with. Would have loved to have the option to purchase a little astronaut to use.
Made a space obsessed boy very happy! He opened it right away.
I gave this as a gift to my friend's five year old for her birthday. She wanted to build it right away!
The kit was amazing! My daughter loved building the moon. The kit has great high quality materials that were fun and easy to use.
I sent this to my 5 year old grandson for his birthday and he loves it. He also got an astronaut suit and a rocket tent...so it all went together perfectly! Thanks for having awesome things!
I purchased this item for my 6 year old niece and we both had a great time building the moon model and reviewing the other items provided in the kit. I don't believe it is stated in the item description on the website, but the kit does include two balloons and enough materials to make more than one model. This item helps children to develop motor skills, and is a good item to promote interest in astronomy and science. I really try to get my niece toys with a STEM focus when I can. The book that is included in the kit has great pictures, interesting facts, a nice story, and a quiz at the very end. I was unaware at the time I ordered the time, but my niece had already taken an interest in learning about space, so the timing worked out great!
