    This book was an impulse buy when we were having trouble finding

    This book was an impulse buy when we were having trouble finding a gift for our 4 year old daughter to give our 7 year old son for Christmas. It got set aside for about a month, because in our experience, building models has always been a fun activity in theory, but always more of a hassle in reality.

    When our son finally pulled Make Your Own T-Rex off the shelf and we saw how many pieces were in the box, I admit, I was intimidated.  But like another reviewer said, we put the pieces in piles of 10 (#1-10, 11-20, etc).  The instructions were refreshingly clear and simple to follow, with both text and pictures to guide you.  It fit together really well; easy enough that our 4 year old cuold pitch in, and sturdy enough that the model will stay upright and put together for a long time.  The kids can't actively play with it, but it looks solid and sleek on the shelf - like our own little museum display.

    The only negative is thatthey apparently haven't come out with any other dinosaur species.  
    I think my kids would have loved to collect em all, if only there were more to collect.

    The best model I've seen! Great value, HIGHLY recommended!

    I am now the proud owner of my own T.Rex!
    Following the very clear instructions given in the book, I now have a 3ft long skeleton model crouched on top of my piano and looking amazing! It is much admired.
    I think the whole design concept is very clever with the 71 individual pieces of the skeleton easily removed from within 11 boards which become a sturdy base and the intricacy and construction process for attaching the pieces is wonderful. No glue needed throughout! Each stage of the process is very clear with one following on after another to build up into the final splendid model. The book is full of information and wonderful pictures.
    This is a lovely product, educational, creative and fun! I am sure it will be enjoyed by many, adults as well as children and I do hope there will be more “Make Your Own” products to come.
