Well my granddaughter turned 8 and really wanted this. Instead, she chose to use her birthday to generate enough money to feed 189 people at John 3:16. As a grandpa I was very proud of her for making that selfless decision, however my job is also to spoil her and bought her this. I also gave her some money to go towards her first wish, feeding the needy.
The set seemed easy enough to put together (I watched my son in law perform those fatherly duties :-) ). Meanwhile my granddaughter was all smiles helping out. Lovely gift. The thing is pretty large though, which is alright by me. It's 3' x 4', with a lot to offer in creativity. One day I'll break out the hand built one for her that her great grandfather built for my daughter.
