Thumbs up all the way!
on 29 October 2013
I was a bit scared giving this lovely nano puzzle to the 9 year old (who was delighted to receive it!), but I am glad I trusted my judgment. nanoblocks difficulty levels vary from 1 to 5, and the Grand Piano is only level 2, absolutely manageable for smart kids under 12 who are used to their Legos. Surprisingly, it did not even take too long. It took him about an hour for the piece to be fully assembled - and it also included time when we accidentally dropped a number on pieces on the floor - good job each pack comes with a multitude of additional (spare) pieces.
This was a present for a young music student, who just passed his first piano exams, but I could see it could have also worked with his mid-twenties tutor! Ultimately, this is a great toy/puzzle for both young and old who are interested in music and/or construction toys and/or Asian/Japanese culture.
And don't be put off with the 12-age limit! Here the 9 year old did not have any problems working out these blocks! Thumbs up all the way!
