I bought this for my grandson because he was off school, sick, when the class made automatons. We made it together over several days and he loved the process and the outcome.

Hi Valerie, many thanks for your nice review, glad the Caterpillar went down well!!

Bought this kit for my 10 year old son as he showed an interest in how CAMS work. It’s a great starter kit with easy to follow instructions and he had a ball making it. He’s asked for another one so, will choose a different kit and will be ordering again. Quick delivery in the current climate (Covid lockdown) and good quality kit. He can’t wait to build the next one!
