    Practice,Practice,Practice!

    This was a challenging kit. It takes a lot of practice and time to master. I do not recommend it for younger kids. It can be frustrating. Step by Step instructions could always be more detailed but would make for quite a hefty book. Some parts we just improvised. Makes for a unique gift for a teen. I give it 3 stars for the difficulty and not complete step by step instructions.

    Nice idea, but difficult to use

    A nice concept, but difficulty using the balloon pump. My 10-year-old begged for this item, but he couldn't inflate the balloons and got frustrated.

    I don't know if its art...

    My ten year old is all into origami and then she saw this jumble of balloons. I was a little skeptical, I mean are these people architects who just outright failed and are now resigned to the art of balloon construction? In any case, I paid my ten bucks to achieve that happy face on my girl. Okay, so the pump is not exactly engineered by NASA, but if you can successfully slurp a Frappucino, you can improvise. She had a lot of fun attempting the recreate a lot of the designs, and we did discuss some famous and infamous buildings. She did not recreate the Sistine Chapel, but one design did look close to that leaning tower. Overall, I think this product made one fun afternoon, and to me, I could bear the popping of balloons to hear my kid laugh.

    inferior product

    I bought this product for my son who loves baloons. The pump, the most important part of this kit, failed to work at all. We were unable to blow up the baloons, my son cried, and I was irritated that a store I trust was selling such garbage. I went to Dollar General and spent $.99 for a new pump that worked.

    Overall, very disappointed !

    Several of the balloons came with holes in them and it was to hard to do for my 11 year old!
