Well this really does make a nice, big, tasteful decoration. My 6 year old helped....a bit, mostly with pressing out the figures & I would say that any child younger than that is going to find this pretty well impossible. I am pretty good at making things & still found it fiddly & haven't finished making all the figures yet. Would be great for a slightly older child who likes making stuff. Get yourself armed with those precut scotch tape strips in order to stick the tabs as you go.
