I gave this to my grandson for his 6th birthday and he absolutely loved chiseling out the bones and building a dinosaur. Every Kiwi crate he's experienced has been top-notch quality and entertainment!

My 6 year old spent an entire hour carefully chiseling out the fossils and he loves playing with the pieces. This was a massive hit and I highly recommend it.
