Great gift!!! Especially if you are looking for something that will get a kid to WILLINGLY stop playing on a device (iPad, cell phone, video games) and actually use their mind while having fun! Perfect for the kid that "has it all."
My 8 and 9-year-old kids are the only grandkids/niece and nephew in the family. They have so MANY THINGS. To give you an idea of how fun this set is, last night we opened gifts for Hanukkah. It was the 5th night and so they have already gotten 4 other presents that are things they wanted and anticipated getting. My 8 yr old son got a Super Mario Bros (SMB) Nintendo Switch game (#1 thing he wants=ANYTHING SMB related) and my 9 yr old daughter got this.
I was pleasantly SHOCKED that they both immediately played with this. Together. Happily. Even came up with other games using pieces.
The brand new SMB video game that my son has been begging for months for sat unopened on the counter. They played with this for hours. It is SUPER fun, educational, and engagi
