My 10 year old really enjoyed making this mechanical tiger. The instructions were clear and although you needed tools it was quite simple. He did need parental support, but basically did it himself. It is a nice quality little thing, quite robust, and now marches around the kitchen floor. Great service from Wonderland Models.
