My daughter loves "Russian dolls" and when I saw this kit, it was a no brainer purchase. What a great idea as I know many little girls love these. While, for the money, it was overall good quality there were some elements that niggled. It only came with one paint brush and one of the paints was off - only half filled and so watery it was unmixable/unuseable which was a downer.
Also, 3 of the inner dolls were very difficult to take apart while the largest doll fell apart when it was lifted so the factory machinery needs adjusting/checking when the wood is cut.
It's also quite intricate painting in parts and the brush supplied is too cheap to reach some of the smaller areas without painting over lines, etc.... It's also a bit challenging for kids under 6/7 I would think.
My daughter is happy with it though and we enjoyed painting it together so for that reason alone, I recommend would it.
