This review is from: LEGO Star Wars 8038 The Battle of Endor (Toy)
We chose this set for our 8 year old son who loves Star Wars as it contains his favourite characters. He received this set as his main Christmas present along with several other Star Wars Lego sets. Needless to say this is his favourite!

He is just under the recommended age for this set so needed a lot of help to build the models. His Mum actually built some of them and managed to get them ever so slightly wrong - occasionally using the wrong part which usually doesn't get noticed until almost the end when you cant find the crucial part you need! This is where patience come in!

Our son could understand the excellent instructions and managed to build quite a bit himself but there are a few bits, especially on the main model where having a light touch comes in handy - more than two hands would be useful too!

The main model is very fragile and didnt last that long but its Lego and I am sure he will soon be able to rebuild the sections as he wants to. He gets so much fun from playing with the main characters and the base it has been well worth the money. The lego characters have even replaced the playing places in our ancient Monopoly set!

All in all an excellent bit of kit - if it is for someone under 9 then expect to give them a lot of help.
