Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Space Shuttle Discovery & Booster Rocket 1:144 scale model (Toy)
I bought this as a father and son (8) model building project that could be done together. In truth, there is not much for the son to do. I don't know what the '6' minimum age refers to. It certainly appears to me that once the model is built, it is not a 'toy' to play with as such as it is just not robust enough for that. I would suggest that this model only really suits an older boy (i.e. 30+) who likes this sort of thing and anyone with the romantic notion that I had would best stay clear.

Sorry but this isn't a toy to be played with, it's a model. Of course it's not robust enough, they just aren't designed that way!
I get the impression that you didn't get the oppurtunity to make models when you were younger, which is quite sad, but I can assure you young boys really do love making these things and they are a great way to teach kids about history, engineering and problem solving. Though I do agree that six is a little young I was making things like this with my dad by the age of eight and having a great time and as such feel that this review is a bit unfair.
