This was very fun for me. However it does take time to fold and form various parts. Some are very small so one needs good dexterity. I used a fast drying craft glue and paper clips to hold pieces temporarily as they dried. There were parts of the instructions (drawings on where to attach or fold) that weren’t as clear to me, but was able to figure out after working with it. Other parts didn’t fit together easily, sometimes paper wasn’t firm enough. This can be frustrating, but overall I enjoyed and each scene displays nicely!
