    Good idea, bad packaging!

    My main frustration with this interesting idea is that the actual cardboard puzzle parts are larger than the box that they are fitted into. The plastic "stone" parts jammed up against them makes the outcome a certainty. The base parts are warped as a result, and will not flatten even under heavy books. I should think that children will find it very frustrating that the base will not stay together as a consequence. One would have to glue the pieces to a firm base to make it work. Perhaps this is the result of European standard printing sizes being incompatible with American standard boxes?

    Build Your Own Stonehenge

    I like the idea of this set but I am disappointed in the execution. It can best be described as Stonehengelike rather then an accurate replica. A quick comparison shows that the positions of the inner Trilithon stones on the included base are incorrect. They should be in a U shape; not a circle. The fallen stones are printed on the base; but these are also incomplete and inaccurate. North is not indicated on the base; it is aligned with stone 1 to split stone 7. The official Stone numbering system is not used; kit stone 1 is really Stone 16. There seems to have been little effort done to recreate the specific shapes and textures of the stones with the model; nor do the dimensions seem to be consistent. A scale is not mentioned but based on measurements of various model stones the scale varies from 1/170 to 1/225. If a scale of 1/200 is chosen; the outer Sarsen Circle diameter should be 5 13/16 inches; it is 5 1/8 on the base. The heel stone is not included; it would be off the base 15 1/4 inches from the center lined up from kit stone 2 and splitting 12 and 13 and would be 7/8 inches tall. My recommendation is to buy the set, find an accurate layout of Stonehenge and print it for a base. With a little research, work, painting and making a heel stone, this will look fantastic.

    The stones did not sit on the puzzle base ...

    I got this for Christmas & thought would be perfect for my office desk top ... however, when the puzzle base were put together, the stones (too light weight) to stay up-right ... still, the illustration were nice, the text were interesting and educational. I ended up leaving it at home.

    Makes for a Interesting Desk Ornament

    Decent impulse item while your waiting in line to pay for your books. If you have plenty of open space on your desk it can make for a good decoration.

    Stonehenge Mini-Model

    I am a HUGE archaelogy buff and was fascinated when I first saw this model at Barnes and Noble. I would love to have more ancient wonders in this scale. The quality is good and the instructions are minimal. The size of the arrangement is perfect.
