I bought the red level kit for my five-year-old son, and he loved it. He's at the stage where he asks 100 questions a minute, so I was a little nervous that getting through the worksheet would be a bit of a chore. To my surprise, he sat through the entire sheet listening intently. The content was easy to follow, and every part of the lesson was laid out for us; directions, worksheet, answers, and all the project materials from the wood and paper to the brushes and scissors. The only thing extra I needed to grab was a couple of paper towels for the clean-up afterward.
It was nice to get away from all the electronics for a while and learn something we probably wouldn't have otherwise thought to try. If you are thinking about grabbing this for your kids or grandkids, I'd definitely recommend it.
