I bought this for my 5 year old and she loved it. It was easy to use as the colours correspond to numbers on the picture. You just have to take the little coloured squares and stick them on the relevant numbered squares and hey-presto you have a super picture - particularly appealing to girls is the nice sparkly appearance. They feel that they have made something lovely and as a bonus it doesn't make much mess! There are about 5 (I think) pictures to do in the box, so you could even use it to entertain a small group of kids. My eight year old also loved doing it.
