My take: I of course knew as soon as they spied Mario he would have to be the first one to be built. My boys are 4 and 6 and easily put this product together. I love how they used teamwork and problem solving skills to build this set. I also love the hand-eye coordination used for them to try to capture Mario via the Piranha Plant.
The boys needed help building the attack copter and the off roader but had a great time customizing each with stickers. I love how interactive this product is- they each took turn launching the missile (love how they are foam so they don’t sting when they hit you) and evading the missile with the off roader.
