Bought as part of my sons Xmas this is a good kit. It comes with the wooden rocket parts, glue to stick them together, paint, stickers to decorate it, a paint pallete, brushes, a splash mat and instructions. My son who is 5 could manage to stick it together with minimal supervision and you have the option to paint it in the style of the Saturn V rocket as on the box, or do your own design as you receive a selection of paint colours. The only complaint I would have is that the paint is quite thin so you need quite a few coats for coverage.

I really liked the fact that this toy could be built by my son, then painted and when finished was sturdy enough to be played with. A lot of entertainment time for the money spent. Too often you buy craft kits from which the finished product falls to bits quite quickly. Not in this case.

The box also has preprinted solar systems shapes which can be cut out and made into a mobile if desired.

Would make an excellent birthday gift.

My son loved making this. He painted it, stuck the stickers on and glued it all together, and in the process learnt about the rocket and how it goes into space.
We sat at the table and did it together and he really enjoyed it. It now sits pride of place on his shelf in his room. Great learning toy that encourages imagination
and craft.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bought for my 4-year old 8 Oct. 2013

I bought this for my 4 year old, he loves rockets. The "jets" don't fit well in the pre-drilled holes, took some manuvering to get it to stand upright to paint it. It was more of a mommy job than hands-on building for my son.

3.0 out of 5 stars does the job 4 Dec. 2010

I did this project with my grandson, who just turned 5. He just slapped on some paint, then glued the thing together. I don't know if he plays with it; I only see him about once every 6-8 weeks. The whole project didn't take much time. He seemed to enjoy it but then when he saw the more "fancy" paint jobs illustrated on the carton, he seemed disappointed with what he had done. Perhaps if I were more artistic myself I could have guided him better. Overall we had a fun time doing this, but I think it amounted to a half-hour's worth of fun. For the price, I'm not sure it's a great investment --- at least for a 5-year-old.
