Good concept, could be realised better
on 15 June 2014
We had the ideal chance to bench-test this – a caravan holiday with our grand-daughters, aged 7 and 11. They both enjoyed trying out the kit, but we found a few drawbacks.
The view from the 11 year old, who has done lots of craft kits in the past: “The colours and patterns are very good, so the pictures you make are lovely, but the instructions could be clearer, and you end up with several messy bits of paper” (she meant the offcuts). She conceded that she was at the top of the target age group (6 to 11), but we agreed overall with her.
As grandparents, having done several craft kits with two generations, we noticed that this one didn’t keep their attention for very long compared with some other Galt kits (though the 7 year old was a bit more interested, probably because of the novelty value); I’m a little surprised that some reviewers have said it gave their children hours of fun.
